The fish soup as a starter, good. Then the artic char and the steamed bacalao, excellent both. We closed with the tilslørte bondepiker, a delicious traditional Norwegian dessert.

We where a large group that made advance reservation (with food choices). Nothing was prepared when we arrived. We had to wait 90 min for the food and almost the same time for any water or drinks. The reindeer steaks where terrible and any complaints to the server "Natalia" where useless as we where called "terrible" customers with foodallergies. Several... More

Well i had two amazing dishes, which i normally dont get in my country - Wild Bear & Reindeer. Although they were not that great in taste, may be my expectations were a bit high from the dishes. But it is a bit costlier than the other restaurants in the vicinity and this is more of like a date thing... More

This restaurant was advertised as the "World's most famous restaurant in Bergen". So we high expectations coming here. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best and the service was terrible. Atmosphere: If you go to the restaurant's website (http://www.wesselstuen.no/) you will see pictures of a dimly lit restaurant that looks very upscale and a classy setting. Sadly what we saw... More

We were a bit scared as from outside this place looks like a classic tourist trap, but were amazed with the atmosphere, fast service and great fish soup! If you wonder where to eat in Bergen, this is a good choice. It is not cheap by any means but what is in Norway?

If you want to eat in a restaurant with atmosphere in Bergen, this is a good pick. The menu is not exquisite, but you get what you need, and it's tasty and well prepared. The prices are moderate (for Norway, that is). Beer - from Bergen's own brewery Hansa - is served in decent 0,5-glasses, which is the good old... More

Old time Bergen / Hansa athmosphere. Great fish soup. Friendly waiters, fast service. Heaven compared to Bryggekanten.
