Description: Restaurant 1877 opened in january 2013. We are located at Kjottbasaren, a historical building in the heart of Bergen. Our menu follows the season so that we can use the best raw materials, that are available. We put a lot of focus on the local producers in the area, and to the norwegian traditions around cooking. We serve shellfish, fish, meat, cheese, and dessert. From there you can choose if you would like to have a full evening with the 5 courses, or would prefer a half evening with 3 courses that you choose from the menu. 3 Course dinner - 595 5 course dinner - 725,- Winepackage is 435 for 3 course dinner, and 725 for 5 course dinner

We found 1877 totally by chance-- wandering by, it looked classy and not the usual tourist haunt, so we went in. The professionalism was immediately obvious from the welcome, and the service from then on was outstanding. Every dish was explained in detail by the chef or chef's apprentice. The drink service was expert, with recommendations made from an extensive wine list. I started with a local craft beer, again based on a detailed recommendation. We went for the 3 course menu-- you can have either 3 or 5, and mix and match courses as you like. My partner actually changed one choice halfway through, and it was no problem. A little complimentary palate teaser kicked the meal off, a crevice of fish and water melon on a solid block of salt- the longer the dish sat there, the more salt it took on. Entrees in our case were a delicate crab dish in one case, and pan fried mackerel in the other. Both were great. We both had veal for the main accompanied by probably the best vegetables we've ever had- delicate, interesting, varying textures. Deserts were a lovely berry and meringue dish, and a cheese plate in my case. The sommelier is prepared to offer all but his most expensive wines by the glass, which led us to have a New Zealand Sauvignon blanc and Spanish red whose name I forget-it was excellent however. I almost forgot to mention the little palate cleanser between main & desert- a drink made of two seasonal plants that you were challenged to identify. We couldn't, but loved it. Overall, fine dining and friendly and professional service with an all up bill of 1630 NOK. In expensive Norway, where a pizza can be 250 NOK, we thought it was excellent value. Highly recommended.

I took my wife here for a birthday treat as we were in Bergen for the weekend. We went for the five course menu and the food was excellent (with the exception of the first course which was a little bland). The service was also very friendly and all-in-all it was a very good dining experience. With a shared wine flight between the two of us, dinner was just shy of £200 which we thought very reasonable given the standard of food and the location of the restaurant (i.e. Norway!).

We went here for our anniversary. 3 course meal with wine. The service was perfect, the food was Ace, and the atmosphere was very nice and almost relaxed. Several of the things we were served were the best we ever had (the dessert wine, the rose fish, and the bread, actually). Will be making reservations again once we have the chance.

We had the 5 course meal to celebrate our anniversary. A wonderful experience! Varied courses, and it was no problem to exchange the meat course with an extra fish course. Friendly service and our waiter was very knowledgeable about wine.
