Charming place that served us a fantastic "lutefisk" plate. Nicely prepared and it had fantastic taste. The service where way above what others have written so i have no problem recommending this place.

Enjoyed an early Sunday afternoon dinner with my Bergen family. Prices seemed high even for Norway, but Wesselstuen besides being a Bergen institution, is in the middle of the tourist track. The two fish selections ordered by our party were cooked perfectly; the mussels dish and the chicken both satisfactory. Unfortunately the two of us who ordered the famous Bergen... More

Maybe Bergen's famous eatery once, but today this place is a shame. The atmosphere is terrible 80s, and the food average. The service was not particularly good even the restaurant was almost empty (on a Saturday night!). I had a quite good fish, but when eating seafood in such an "upper" restaurant at Norway's west coast I expect creativity, perfection... More

From the outside, this place looks a wee bit murky, but once inside it opens up into a lovely dining room with table linen. We chose a quiet day lunch-wise, so we had good service and the food was well prepared and served. I had a burger, which was excellent.

We have family in Bergen who brought us here. Charming, historical place with excellent food and great service. It was a very slow Sunday night and we had almost the whole place to ourselves. The fish soup (creamy, chowder like) was delicious and so was the burger and the baked fish. Decent beer and wine selection too. It's just far... More

This restaurant is in an old building just off King Olav V square, in a warm room with lots of wood and a host of old murals on the walls; a very cozy spot. The menu is short but has a good balance of fish, meat and vegetarian. I had the fish soup which was good and the veal loin... More

We went in after having had a look at the menu outside, where at the very top they offered the Light Menu, a set of smaller and cheaper courses. They found us a table for the two of us and we ordered. The waitresses seemed not happy about our "poor" choice, a burger, a sausage and mash and two cokes... More

The food was really good, the service was good, the drinks, the table, the company... I am all over very satisfied! I was there for traditional Norwegian christmas food with a group of colleagues in the beginning of December. We avoided the busy weekend and got the restaurant about half full. The nice waitresses that served our table was giving... More
