  • Food, Drink & Culture

Just outside the City of Bergen, you will find one of the most exotic attractions in the whole of Western Norway’s archipelago. Cornelius is one of Norway’s best seafood restaurants and a meal here is truly unforgettable. Experience a 5-course meal at Cornelius including transportation from and back to Bergen on a scenic boat ride!

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. Inspired by the weather of the day, Cornelius serves its famous Meteorological Menu of exquisite seafood and trimmings, prepared using innovative culinary techniques and with a genuine passion for seafood.

The head chef Håkon Pansuna Vesetvik, has extensive experience in seafood and composes new menus every single day inspired by the wind and what the sea has to offer. As the main course, Cornelius always uses the best quality fish for the current season. It is served with innovative cooking techniques and exciting accessories.

In the wine cellar or the Wine Grotto, there are over 7000 bottles of wine from all corners of the world, making it one of Norway's finest wine cellars. The Wine Grotto is carved into the mountains behind the restaurant, has natural cooling from the sea, and has constantly high humidity. This guarantees optimal conditions for long-term storage and maturing of wine.

All the wines are carefully picked out to match the kitchen's dishes and we can guarantee genuine flavors and wine combinations in all price ranges. Well educated sommeliers will gladly take you on a tour of the grotto and guide you with your wine selection.

On beautiful summer days, the sliding doors are opened and tables are set up on the pier, where light dishes are served. When the weather is less favorable, a cozy atmosphere is created indoors and food with stronger flavors are served accompanied by candles around the fireplace.
