We had a perfect gathering at Cornelius. The food was super fresh and perfectly prepared, the service was pleasant and very informative. We were told stories about the place, the wines, explained the Norwegian habit of drinking red wine with the cod, and got tips on how to match wine and food. I recommend the 5 course menu. And go...

Had a fantastic evening at Cornelius tanks to exceptional , food, wine and service. We even managed to get some fishing rods out at the end of the evening and land a few fish. They provided what I would describe as the best smoked salmon that I have ever had and the horse mussel was something entirely. You are going... More

This was a very special experience. The beautiful food, god wines, the view, and the service left nothing to be desired. Clearly one of the best (of many very good) restaurant experiences I have had. The conference-package including the lunch was also great, and the (charter-) boat-ride with the somewhat eccentric owner of the restaurant will surely be remembered by... More

With high expectations we were transported to Cornelius by boat. Arriving at the dock, we were met by a waiter escorting us and the other guest inside. Once inside we were immediately recognized and given our preordered drinks before we were shown the wine cellar and were seated at our table. We enjoyed a fantastic five-course meal including wine package,... More

I just love fresh seafood and if You do, well at this place you will hit the jackpot. We had a five course meal with the wine package and it was superb. Scallops, Pollock, European Hake, Apple cake, ice cream.. Just lovely. The only negative I have to say is that they can be more creative with the garnish, in... More

We appreciate your feedback and will take into consideration your comments regarding the garnish. It is correct that we do not have a wine list, we do have 7000 bottles of wine in our wine cellar, all of the hand picked by our sommeliers to match the food that we are serving at any time. In this way we are... More

The restaurant can only be accessed by boat, and there is a service leaving from Bradbenken most evenings at 6PM for the 20 minute trip. We enjoyed a variaty of fish and shellfish, all beautifully prepared and very tasty. The location cannot be beaten, right on the main boat thoroughfare to Bergen.

The "ferry" ride is in a luxury cruiser and very scenic. The restaurant has a spectacular setting with a very different, but great, proprietor. It has many outdoor seafood tanks with part of your menu still "swimming." When I told the proprietor that I wished he had some scallops and oysters on the menu that night, he solved the problem....

It is one of those restaurant where one goes for the experience. they pick you up on a boat (fairly small one) and take you to a small island 20min away. There is no menu a la carte, the chef decides. there are two main options, 3 or 5 courses. Our 3 courses menu costed about £80. They gently persuade... More

I have had the opportunity to eat twice in this restaurant on business occasions, and both times the experience was incredible. The food consist almost only in fish and other type of sea products, which they collect themselves. So freshness is guaranteed.
