King Neptun would go here

This is probably one of the best seafood resturants on the west coast of Norway. Its so good even King Neptun would pick this place. The chefs go scuba diving everyday to get fresh ingredients for the menu of the day. They also have water tanks where they "grow" their own scallops. One thing to... read more

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

We appreciate your feedback. Our guests opinions are very important to us and I am pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit. The price might seem a little high as we have the boat trip included in the menu price. However, I hope that you found that you got value for money. More

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!

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...

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
