Staying in Bergen for just night we were reading a lot (the White Guide Nordic 2017 is a great read) to choose the best restaurant experience in Bergen. As the post suggests - we went to Colonialen. Great choice. We went for the large tasting...More

Had a 5 meal course together with coworkers to celebrate. Nice restaurant with very good service. Food was international with local touch. One of the best restaurants in Bergen and quite expensive, but good value.
