I was here on a marriage party, and the food was good. Service was good, but the price was too much.

From the moment you reserve a place to the moment you're dropped off, the wonders never cease. You'll board a speed boat that will take you to an exclusive place on one of the many island in the Bergen fjord. You will see and hear how your food lands on the plate, prepared by the excellent chefs and served by... More

The welcoming atmosphere, the dramatic and beautiful blue lights in the sea by our window was just the beginning on a perfect evening. We had a 5 course seafood menu with wine.The food was amazing, fresh, creative and it just kept coming. Our waiter for the evening was a... More

As I am searching for information to recommend to a friend headed to Norway, I want to recall our visit from June. An incredible evening from start to finish! My Norwegian relatives took us for a wonderful seafood experience - but we got so much more! The beautiful boat ride to the restaurant from downtown Bergen, the lovely surroundings with... More

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.

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
