We were in Bergen in July and ate dinner at Pingvinen. My thoughts: 1. The service was friendly, thorough, and professional. 2. The atmosphere is casual and pleasant. 3. The food is of very good quality and is prepared/presented well. Both of us had the fish pie and this dish is highly recommended. 4. Prices are reasonable relative to other restaurants, however, this is Norway so they are high to begin with.
I would recommend Pingvinen highly.

Its a lovely unique bar whith a vinyl shop in the same room.
They have many different beers.
One of the best beer ist the '7 Fjell' a local Ale near from Bergen.
The bar is one of the insider tips from our norwegian friends.

Lovely place, good food in a traditional way. With electric sockets available to charge your phone this was excellent on a rainy afternoon in Bergen.

Great food- we ate meatballs and the veal cheeks and it was great. It was a casual simple meal but came together with such a nice service that all the experience was great at this simple casual but great restaurant in Bergen. They do not accept reservations and on the Sunday when we visited the kitchen closed at 9:45 PM. The place is a mix between a bar a small restaurant.Hope they keep on doing what they are doing today.
