If you are going to Bergen, make a reservation to get in here. The restaurant is hard to get into, and hard to get to, being on an uninhibited island in the middle of the fjord. There is no set menu as the fishermen bring their catch daily, while crayfish, oysters etc are kept healthy in small tanks. We had... More

To reach this restaurant you are whisked from downtown Bergen by Ferry (35 minutes) to a very small island. The restaurant, very modern, is perched and built into, the rock of the island, with big, glass fronts. The restaurant has multiple levels and both indoor and outdoor seating. We went as part of a group and got our own room.... More

If you have a lot of money and don't care how to spent them, this restaurant probably for you. The food is not bad and service is not bad. Very touristic atmosphere and the bill was very impressive! We travel a lot and visit a good restaurants but never paid this kind of money for a very average place like... More

The staff was very service minded, from the moment we stepped into the restaurant and till we went home. They told us about each course and the wines we got served and gave... More

Loved this place! Amazing food and wonderful service. Food and wine parings were an eating experience like none other! Great to watch people who really excel at their work enjoying what they do. This American guest will return again for another visit to this special place... Thank you for an evening to remember.

With people from all parts of the world gathered in Bergen for business meetings, the end of the day was just perfect. Meet on arrival by friendly staff and not to forget, by Alf, the owner. His personality, stories and food samples were excellent and very very amusing. The food was also excellent, staff very friendly and well informed. Certainly... More

If you have gotten this far, you already know that this place is not like many others. A short ferry ride from downtown Bergen where we are met by our server as we disembark at the restaurant. A glass of bubbly to walk around with before our private tour begins. The chef, diver, owner, harvests the restaurants seafood and it... More

We brought business partners to the Cornelius Restaurant and they were very enthusiastic about the place and the 5 course meal was very good. Our guest appreciated very much that each course and the wine was presented by a chef. In addition the weather conditions could not have been better, sunshine, no wind and good temperature, even though that was... More
