This restaurant was lovely. They have indoor tables and outdoor tables. It is the kind of place where you order at the counter and they bring it to your table, such as is also found in London pubs. We had omelets and tea and coffee....More

We were looking for a restaurant with more locals than tourist. The cafe opera had been an excellent option. A friendly staff offered us a delicious food in a charming atmosphere.

I liked very much the environment at Cafe Opera, nice and charming and with an elegant local touch. I tried the soup of the day - a deliciously spicy chicken soup -. Just what I needed to warm up and regain strength. And my kids...More

Dropped by for a quick lunch. They got some tasteful dishes to choose from, and I picked a delightful flounder on bread with fried potatoes. Highly recomended.

Café Opera is an institution in Bergen. Café by day, bar/pub/concert/music venue by night. Good food at reasonable prices, friendly staff and a varied clientele. Nice place for a glass of wine and a chat, for a hung-over-Sunday brunch or for a tasty burger for...More

Sorry, it's been a few months but it was a delicious meal. I do remember the seats being quite "relaxed" so you had to engage your core to eat dinner, but that's alright, hey?

Unprententious and great tasting food in cafe style place far away from the tourist traps. Conserts, pubquiz and many other arrangements. Will be back!

Very good restaurant located very close to the Opera House. Very good menu selection. Not very busy, probably because no show at the Opera! Café-type furniture, which seems to be the norm in many restaurants/cafes. Excellent food, average selection of beers. About average prices, but...More

Very nice café with friendly staff. We had two omelettes that were way overdone, although the taste was good. It came with a little bit of salad on the plate, but although the greens were fresh, the salad was tasteless, with no dressing that we...More

Thank you for your review, Kari2010. I'm so sorry to hear about your experience with the omelettes, and it certainly doesn't sound like the standard we like to keep. The omelettes are made by order, and are given a bit of toast on top before...More

I would like to know if this cafe sells gift vouchers. I would like to buy one for my friend who lives in Bergen. (I live in South Australia) My friend's birthday is in May. My friend loves burgers.
