We came here on a recommendation from a fine jewelry store and were not disappointed. You wouldn't bother if walking by the exterior and climbing some rickety old stairs in an old building in the historic district. The dining room was old fashioned formal and cozy. A nice escape from the hubbub of the fish market and souvenir shops on... More

Food is amazing - fresh seafood and the service is extremely friendly. I had to get on an official call for around 40 min and they held the table and the food without bothering us once even though it was a very busy Friday night in summer. The decor is amazing - and the restaurant overlooks the waterfront in the... More

I am not a professional reviewer, and this is just my opinion. First, comments about some of the postings below. One reviewer found that the "beurre blanc was too fat". Beurre blanc is a sauce made mostly with butter, and since low- or non-fat butter does not exist, the comment makes no sense. Someone complained about high prices. Folks, this... More

If you'd like to try the best fish in Bergen, go here. The food is excellent, the staff terrific, the restaurant itself is worth just seeing, all these old timber walls and beautiful decorations. We had a great fish meal, the wine was good.

Been here few days ago with my family. The foods here are mediocre yet abit expensive. Basically there are 8 types of fishes to choose from, so if you love fish you woll like it. The service isn't good at all as the waiters/waitress tend to avoid me when I asked for services.

The Enhjorningen, is definitely a gem find in Bergen. Situated in the old Brygge, restored buildings by the harbour, the decor is rich with coloured wooden walls, spacious but cosy rooms. The prices are typically Norwegian but great value for money versus quality experienced in other fish restaurants in Norway. The chilli twist in the mussells was interesting and the... More

Restaurant is situated in the heart of old Brygge- facing the walking area and sea.The building is very old and furnished in a very cosy, elegant way.. The waiter recommended a fresh fish which actually was very good but I personally have taken something else- bacalao with bacon and tomatoes and it was definitely too heavy with too much fat....

I have been in doubt to rate this restaurant between a thee and a four stars but I end up giving a 4 star because at the end dining in such an historical, unique, picturesque and traditional restaurant is a very good experience even if the quality of the food is nowhere near the price you pay, service is a...

According to the tourist information and the restaurant itself, this is the oldest fish restaurant in town. They also claim that they offer a wide range of seafood. I therefore had great expectations. The menu was nothing special, and the cod that I ordered was overcooked. The burre blanc and bacon was way too fat. I was really disappointed by... More

The food is ok, but not worth the price. It took us forever to get our bill, and the restaurant was not busy. Anniying music coming from the bar downstairs. All in all, not worth $300 for two appetizers, a half carafe of house wine, and one entree.
