Came by for lunch. All tables populated by locals which tells me that this is a good place to eat. Prices still high but not the ludicrous prices charged by restaurants down by the Fish Market.Quality of the food good and service efficient and relaxed. Deserves to be in the top 20 restaurants in Bergen

In a great location, this cafe has an eclectic menu, comfortable decor and ambience, and was a great value. I ordered a BLT and got a huge sandwich with a side of roast fingerling potatos. One of the best BLTs I've had ever. Great photos on the walls as well!

We stopped in because of good recommendations from Trip Advisor...and we were not disappointed. The menu was good, and the service excellent. There were a wide variety of ages eating at this restaurant...all locals. The prices were modest compared to other places we had seen.

Comfortable, simple and cozy place to sit and relax. My family came here a week ago and everything was nice. Convenient location from the City Centre, delicious yet simple meals and a cute decor. Service was friendly and welcoming and I would recommend Cafe Opera to other travelers.

Very considerate of special dietary needs, special dishes were created in advance of our arrival, to match our needs, and were gourmet. Really excellent food and service. Old world ambience

I've been to Cafe Opera a couple of times, and I've always enjoyed it. I've been there for both food and just coffee or a beer. The staff is polite and friendly. I especially enjoy the sandwiches, they are generous in portions and really tasty. Great location too!

Good food, nice coffee, and nice servers. This was our first meal in Bergen after wandering around town a bit, and it really hit the spot. Really enjoyed the smorbrodt sandwich and coffee.

The interior is shabby chic, it is crowded (which is a good sign, especially when the surrounding cafes and restaurants have fewer visitors) - you get a good selection of sandwiches (generous portion), hot and cold drinks. You order at the bar, the food is brought to the table. It's close to the theatre and the city centre, a good... More

The food was amazing, so was the staff. They have also outside seating with heaters. Good value for money in Bergen. The bartender/waiter also recommended what food I shouldn't miss while in Norway.
