This is probably one of the best places to eat in Bergen. They have lovely food, great service and a nice atmosphere. Downside is that it is rather expensive, especially if you like to eat a sizeable portion.

Sirkus Escalon, related to the two other Escalons in town, used to serve lunch... but for some reason they stopped, and that is such a shame!

Went here with a buddy for lunch, we have both been to the other Escalon restaurants on several occasions. We were kind of expecting the same menu, but we were in for a surprise. A pos. surprise, some of the classics from Escalon, but also plenty of new dishes. We picked a several dishes and shared everything, we had one beer each, espresso coffe and everything tasted perfect. The waiter was very friendly and service-minded. The atmosphere is quite different from the other Escalons, here it is more "fun" and "relaxed", a place to to go for either lunch or before hitting the clubs in the evening.

This place has a fast changing selection of great tapas, as well as a smaller selection of permanent"Escalon classics". We´ve tried it several times, and we were never disappointed. Its location close to the theater, several of the smaller and greater concert and show scenes makes it a perfect round up to an evening of fun. The dishes are OK sized, we usually share 6-8 for a dinner type meal, or 2-4 for an evening snack for 2 people. And don´t forget to try out some of their special drinks, with or without alcohol. Raspberry cava is a favorite to remember, and goes perfect to the flavor packed dishes.

Less upmarket than Escalon by the foot of Fløibanen across the city centre, this cafe does good versions of some the the Spanish classics. Prices weren't too bad compared with some places in Norway, either. Friendly staff.

My wife and I shared a set 7 courses menu. Most dishes were ok, but the duck was fantastic. I didn't like the indoor part of the restaurant, but sitting outside was superb, with the view of the Tograllmenning and the theatre. We had a great time! Too expensive, though.
