Great views!

Yes, it is spectacular views of seafood. Better bring the bank, though! I suppose everything in Norway is expensive. But good!

Walked through the fish market every day for the three days I was in Bergen, and not once was I tempted to eat there. It struck me as pretty overpriced, only for tourists, and not particularly delicious looking? I did notice that they had a Chinese-speaking salesperson at every stand, to appeal to all the Chinese tourists... (I'm Chinese-American, so... More

I had some great hopes for this fishmarket as it is one of the "must see" attractions in Bergen. However I found it to be a rather dull place with a few vendors, some expensive restaurants and no "market feeling".

I was expecting something more traditional, but when I saw this modern outfit I was surprised. This is definitely a place to enjoy lunch or dinner, with nice sea view, a great variety of fresh fishes and sea food plus a cozy atmosphere. Don't miss it

Stayed with friend's so this is the tourist spot. Very expensive but worth a look and a coffee. Eat once but other places are cheaper but it's a must do.we tried whale and salmon but you are spoilt for choice when you get there. Very close to all destinations and an excellent meeting point

Fish Market is a must see sight in Bergen. It was not very crowded when we were there since it was a rainy, cold day. We even had a quick lunch there but it was not as good as we expected.

The seafood here was really fresh - we had really great fish here, but it was a bit on the pricey side. The staff were also very friendly, and was very enthusiastic in explaining to us the traits of different types of fish.

All the Bergen guide books tout the Fish Market in a way that makes you think that the food gets up to sing for you and they make it rain free caviar. Sadly, these things don’t happen, but just like any other food market IMO, it is a must-do stop. This market is right on the wharf. Inside, you will... More

The market was indoors when I visited - I understand its usually outdoors in season - but a walkthrough is worth it! a mix of counters selling all types of fish, in different forms, even some tasty looking snacks, spreads and sandwiches; and the opportunity to have a meal onsite too in a reasonably formal setting. Prices seem a bit... More

The fish market is absolutely the best spot in Bergen for lunch. Fresh fish of all types, cooked and presented in all manners and delicious. Take advantage of the wide selection of fresh made breads, desserts, jams and jellies too. The outdoor seating area is perfect for people watching and taking in the Bergen harbor scene. To top it off... More
