My friends and I had an incredible time at Cornelius. Although we did go on a fjords tour, Cornelius was the best part of our visit. You definitely must get the 5 courses and listen to Alf's speech. He is really charming. The food is so fresh and the ingredients compliment each other very well. I would come back to... More

We loved the evening at Cornelius Seafood...from the moment we stepped on the boat to take us out to the island, we knew we were in for a special experience. Yes, as everyone has said, it is pricy...and I wish the wines had been more reasonable. Perhaps they will consider adding a house wine (and pouring more generously...)? But, overall,... More

My husband and I had two nights in Bergen. We chose to dine at Cornelius to celebrate our 5 year anniversary during our short trip. The boat ride was a nice way to view the port and surrounding waters of Bergen. The seating at the restaurant is very close compared to American standards, so we had to speak with low... More

One of the best fish restaurants in Bergen area that prepare fantastic fish meals. I've been there several times and I strongly recommend the five course meal. In that way you are able to taste more of their wonderful food. Their wine cellar is one of a kind. If you're lucky, you might be invited in for a tour. Bon... More

We vent with the whole company for a whole day out at cornelius. The seafood was superb and the wine perfectly complementing the food. The conferenceroom was exellent with a wiew of the ocean. We had chartered a boat from Bryggen, and the trip was lovely. All in all a wonderful experience!

You will be picked up in Bergen with a motor boat and taken to Cornelius. The speciality ...of course fish and crustaceous. Most of the shellfish is fished by hands on the sandy banks surrounding the island. Very high cuisine with an excellent collection of wine. I would recommended for business dinners or for people looking for a unique atmosphere.... More

On our arrival to the restaurant the owner waited for us to well come the whole group and help us with the sitting. All of us enjoyed the lunch which incuded fresh fish and fresh... More

Restaurant Cornelius is located on the island of Holmen, a pleasant half-hour boat ride from Bergen. Although famed for its beautiful setting, Restaurant Cornelius is not just a beautiful restaurant, the food is excellent. We were treated to a five course dinner comprising of soup, appetiser, meat, fish and dessert. (we did not opt for the wine pairing, but ordered... More
