We also have Norwegian aquavit, or other varieties of strong traditional Norwegian spirits. And of course we also have coffee, tea, mineral water, soft drinks, local and natural juices, etc. Please note that drinks are not included in the price.
The owner of the boat, Arnfinn Djukastein, has been selling fish at Bergen Fish Market since 1990, and has extensive experience with seafood in all its variations. The boat, M/S Bruvik, is a venerable boat that was built in 1949 to carry goods, post and passengers. For all the years since then, the boat has been sailing the waters around Bergen, with only a few short breaks.
The boat has now been converted into a restaurant boat and has two lounges with bars, and a splendid aft deck used for dining on fine days; a perfect place for you to enjoy the superb landscape in and around the city of Bergen. The boat has been refurbished and completely renovated in recent years, but has not lost its character as a charming and welcoming vintage boat.
When we tie up at the Mathallen quay at the Fish Market again, our guests have had the opportunity to enjoy beautiful views of the city of Bergen and all seven of its stunning mountains, while breathing in the fresh sea air in the beloved archipelago of which the city is rightfully proud.
Wheelchair users are welcome on the sea food buffet & fjord cruise. We lift them on board manually, where they will only have access to the upper deck, and we ask every wheelchair customer to bring an assistant.
