This was my second visit at Cornelius - last time was in dark November rain. Spectacular it its way, but sunshine in May was even better. Like last time both food and service were excellent. All courses were of good or very good quality, but as exciting as the quality was the innovation seen in some of the courses. Worthwhile... More

The place to give your connections or family a special treat. Romantic custom made wine cellar, cooled from the sea water and mountain itself. Interesting menu and spectacular view to surrounding nature. Try to get there in daylight.

The experience starts with a ferry ride from downtown Bergen to a small island where the restaurant is located. Upon arrival you get a welcome-drink and can listen to a seashell presentation with appetizers and a fun background story about the place. After the seminar, we advance to the restaurant and eat our food near huge glass walls where you... More

The trip started with a ferry ride from downtown Bergen to a small island where the restaurant is located. We ordered the seashell-seminar in advance, and learned about the story of the place, with something nice to drink and appetizers for everyone. After this, we are walking over to the restaurant where we sit down and eagerly wait for our... More

Take the time to book at table at restaurant Cornelius. A boat will take you straight to the table (approx 20 minutes) where you are met by a very service minded, knowledgable, professional and friendly staff. Go with one or more friends or work related with a large group, They will manage. If a large group approx 20 persons -... More

I went with a group to the Island, so I cannot comment on the value for money aspect. In addition, because we were there as a group, we were treated by the eccentric owner to an amusing, informative and finally delicious, "Shellfish lecture", which was not available to the other diners. I'd have to say that the food and drink... More

Cornelius is a great experience. Boat ride, hospitality, food, wine. Well worth the indulgence. Do it!

The freshest possible fish, perfectly prepared and matched with carefully selected wines, with exceptionally friendly service in a delightful setting. I'd go to Bergen just for this.
