The most memorable experience! Yes! Yes! Yes!

One of the best restaurants in all of the Nordic countries. Been here a number of times. Seriously a great experience for anyone who loves fresh seafood, a lovely atmosphere, and fine wine.

The restaurant is located on a small Island. The view from restaurant is beautiful!! You have to take a boat to get there. Restaurant look very posh. Nothing special. Food was nice but not great. Portions are very small, so for a men it could be not enough. Thanks God they have served bread :-) If you have to spend... More

It is not enough place here to describe everything, so I will be short. To eat at Cornelius was a part of birthday gift to my boyfriend. We were picked up at Bryggen in Bergen and had a nice trip with boat to Cornelius. The owner or one of them told a crazy funny stories to all of guests and... More

Visiting Cornelius was a great experience and a very nice day for all of us. It’s more than just food people eat in a restaurant. The whole experience is amazing, starting by taking the boat from Bergen harbor for about 25 minutes. You just can sit inside and relax and enjoy the majestic scenery of the fjord from your window.... More

The food is very good, as is the scenery. The prices are a bit high, but the value for money is OK. The service is also OK. The boat trip between the Bergen Harbour and Resturant Cornelius is enjoyable, both for friends, colleagues and couples. Highly recommended. Will return.

This place is all about appearances. But in deepness is quite disappointing. The supposed talk about seafood, it's in reality a funny-ish talk about the owner's past sexual life, with just 5min dedicated to explain some interesting things about scallops. Then you are served a remarkable smoked salmon. But 200NOK for this small piece of salmon and some nasty jokes...... More

Boat ride to the island, wonderful location, welcome prosecco, great view if you have a window, watched the sunset over the 3-4 hours we were there, great food and the eccentric owner going from table to table (had his Australian hat on - "Oyster Dundee"). Ask to see the wine cellar too. The prix fixe set menu is probably the... More

Love everything about this place. Wonderful location (on an island), fresh - fresh - fresh food (can be seen live in tanks on the spot), and very friendly staff. Recommend the Seafood "Tower" - everything good the sea has to offer ! Shrimp, crab, oysters, sea urchin, different fish.... yummie ! They also have a great wine cellar. Boat takes... More

Booked before our holiday to Norway, as a special meal for my husband's birthday that day. From start to finish it was brilliant. Lovely boat trip. Amazing food. Relaxed atmosphere. Incredible view. Very friendly and attentive staff. Delicious wine and staff were accommodating, letting us opt for half of the wine package. Not to be missed if you're going to... More
