A bit out of the way but 2 mins walk from Danmarks Plass tram stop. Unassuming looking out and in but a good feel. Beer decent and although I did not sample the food, what a saw come out of the kitchen certainly looked tempting but I had eaten earlier so missed out.

I come here often, as I live close and I am happy to say I have never been disappointed. Great food, good atmosphere and weekly quiznights. It is always nice to open the door and take in the atmosphere of the old farmacy.

Fantastic food and service! The manager of the place was our waiter for the evening, and explained the simple but tasty menu to us in person. Exluding the Biens special sausages and Biens Pasta Bolognes they change their menu now and then with one dish with meat, typically veal from a local farm, and a fish dish. I tried the fish, and she the meat dish: fantastic presented and tasty. Like a high class restaurant. But the price level in this old drug store from the 1800's is in general much lower than rest of Bergen :)

Summary:
- Good wine
- Ægir beer (microbrewery in Flåm)
- Fantastic food
-5 diffrent main dishes
- 5 different desserts
- low priced compared to other restaurants in Bergen

Every first Tuesday of the month Bien Bar offers a free chamber music concert (classical, jazz, ..). With the cosy atmosphere, good food and easy access by the light rail this is really something to consider.
Their dinner menu consists of 6-7 dishes (different every night) and some classic desserts. Their tiramisu is one of the best I've tried, and comes in a generous size. :)
Their mushroom soup with caramelized walnuts is great, too!
Bien Bar has news papers, wifi (I'm almost sure they have one), low music and good sound proofing to the traffic outside. Good for people coming alone, couples, with family (grown-ups) and friends - from what I have tried previously. :)

Cost: $-$$

Relaxed atmosphere, great art deco interior, excellent food, friendly staff. Absolutely worth the 10 min trip by light rail from the city centre. Go!
