We went out a group of 4, to celebrate my sister's birthday. The concept is quite unique, with a comfortable boat taking you directly out from the centre of the city tp a secluded little island with a waterfront/boathouse restaurant. We were perhaps a bit...More

Quite a must experience while in Bergen. You should not expect a fabolous meal, but it is well-served and the overall experience is worth its price (given the Norwegian standard). If you're lucky with nice weather, you can enjoy a beautiful fjord ride to the...More

The problem with the rain is not so much the rain itself, but it takes away the nice scenic experience. The place is definitely best enjoyed when there is a clear sky and no rain. then you get to see the surroundings and... More
Hello Again, I already have a reservation for July 20th for the Fjord lunch. Is that at the restaurant or on a boat? We are wanting inside the restaurant but we need the boat ride from the Bryggen to the restaurant. I hope we have secured the best reservation. We just don't want to eat on the boat. Thank you for clearing it up for me. Becky Howell

Just outside the City of Bergen, you will find one of the most exotic attractions in the whole of Western Norway's archipelago. Cornelius is one of Norway's best seafood restaurants. It is situated right by the sea on a small island with spectacular views of the fjord, mountains, skerries and passing boats and ships. Inspired by the weather of the day, Cornelius serves its famous Meteorological Menu of exquisite seafood and trimmings, prepared using innovative culinary techniques and with a genuine passion for seafood. Cornelius is open all year. On beautiful summer days, we open the sliding doors and set up tables on the pier, where we serve lighter dishes. When the weather is less favourable, we create a cosy atmosphere indoors and serve food with stronger flavours and light up the candles and the fireplace. Every season - every day - we offer unique and exciting culinary experiences on Holmen. Experience a beautiful trip among the skerries, from Bryggen wharf in the City of Bergen to Holmen at Bjoroy. Regular departures at 18.00 from Dreggekaien on Bryggen (shed no. 8) opposite Radisson Blu Royal Hotel and Clarion Collection Hotel Havnekontoret. Return from Holmen at 22.30. The boat trip takes 25 minutes. Warm, safe boats take you back and forth in comfort, - regardless of the weather. Please contact us if you want to charter a private boat. During the summer months we have regular departures for lunch Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.
