This tourist magnet is right in the heart of old-time Bergen, by the wharf. One vendor offered reindeer, elk and whale in addition to numerous kinds of fish, crab, and scallops. I was surprised that one place offered sushi, at prices twice what I pay in the U.S. The market was good for a couple of photo-ops, but not as... More

Huge numbers of fish/seafood on display. Many were new to us being from the U.S. The vendors were most entertaining and enlighten. Amazing number of seafood offerings. One day for lunch we sat in a restaurant at the market and greatly enjoyed our seafood meals. Like an entertaining amusement park. Vendors were great performers. A must see.

Looks like there are nice places to rest a bit and have a drink or eat. This place also works in... More

Ate at the fish market on two evenings at two different stalls and both were excellent. Would recommend to give it a try if you have the opportunity..

Everything is expensive in Norway, but the multiple vendors in the market seem to have also compromised quality. It's edible, but not the special experience we were expecting. With a little effort (and genuine competition) the seafood vendors could create a uniquely enjoyable Norwegian seafood experience, hopefully it was just an off night.

By any comparisons with Spanish markets, this is tiny, housed both in market stalls, but notably in a modern glass building on the quayside. Displays are superb, and choice of all sorts really good. You can eat at tables inside, or buy at the stalls and eat al fresco on foot. We remember it being a bigger market, maybe it... More

Went there for dinner and I liked the experience. It reminded me of a similar experience in morroco with different menu of course. The food is pricey but the king crabs are a must try. They were delicious. The rest of the food was OK but not impressive.

Bergen is a most attractive town and the fish market is right at the centre. Bustling and crowded, there is a great range of fish. The market is partly under canvas and partly indoors. Many stalls sell fish meals for you to consume on the spot or take away.

We went last saturday to have lunch there, it was a good experience, but some of the dishes were good, others not. The fish options are huge. The place was full. It is good for once to try, but I am not sure if I would go back. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful.
