Given how generally expensive Norway is Cafe Opera offers reasonable value for food and drink with the added bonus of 10% off everything if you buy a Bergen card. Good selection and one of the best burgers I have had for a while. Only served with a few roasted new potatoes but they were delicious. You order and pay at... More

No vegan meals... :-( Not even coffe with soya milk... If you are looking for a cosy place to have a vegan meal, Cafe Opera is cosy enough for a drink but NOT for vegan meals. Too bad

We sat outside with a couple of drinks and watched locals pass by a pretty and quiet part of town - lovely and relaxing. Friendly service.

Went on a snowboard trip to Voss and stopped over in Bergen on the way back. Got recommended to Cafe Opera by a local and had one of the best burgers ever! Our waitress Aina was really friendly and gave us tonnes of information about the town! Thanks so much!

When in Bergen, visit Café Opera. There are nice people visiting and cooking. Do not expect a very special dinner. But good food for a reasonable price.

This was an alright spot to meet up with friends. We had a nice coffee. The place was quite full, so we didn't get the best seats. All in all was an ok place.

This is a really cozy place, with ok food and nice prices. That's all. In the weekdays it works as a restaurant, bar and café. In the weekends it can also be a nightclub, scene and jam session place😉.

A Thursday evening, entrance floor filled up, one table free. We chose trout (sesambakt Hardangerørret) and burger with bacon. The wait for serving was about 20 minutes. Both courses came with four small potatoes, the burger with two fingernails of dressing, the trout with a salad plate. The trout was served with skin, head, tail and bones. Tasteless. The burger...
