Cornelius Seafood Restaurant is situated right by the sea on a small island with spectacular views of the fjord, mountains, skerries, passing boats and ships.

During the summer season, Cornelius serves its culinary lunch concept "Eat the fjords", prepared by using innovative culinary techniques and with a genuine passion for seafood. The waiters will welcome you at the pier, with a warm shellfish soup and an introduction of Cornelius, followed by a meteorological main course and a seasonal desert served in the restaurant.

As the main course Cornelius always use the best quality fish for the current season. It is served with innovative cooking techniques and exciting accessories.

The Wine Grotto is carved into the mountains behind the restaurant, has natural cooling from the sea and has a constantly high humidity. This guarantees optimal conditions for long-term storage and maturing of wine.
