Eating in Bergen
Bergen has many restaurants and night spots. Most eateries are simple and
straightforward, and include all the well-known "fast food chains" you know.
Fortunately, the selection is more diverse than that. Bergen has a share of art
and book cafes, and small "hip" eating / snacking places. If you are looking for
gourmet restaurants, it is immediately more difficult to find many options. But
they exist and they are expensive! But this is the case in most cities in
Often fish and sea delicacies are prominent at the famous restaurants in
Bergen. But also remember that Bergen's magnificent nature provides many other
good ingredients for the kitchen as well. Many eateries in Bergen have a long
history and offer distinctive interiors.

plan to eat.

If you take the Fløibanen trip you can dine on site with Bergen's best views.
Fløien Folkerestaurant is the place for a good lunch. It's simple food served,
but the food is good enough. You can also grab a coffee cup and a waffle, or
enjoy a beer. From mid-May to late August there is a popular outdoor restaurant
here as well.
Few restaurants have the same history as Bryggen Tracteursted at Bryggen in
Bergen. Back in the farms at Bryggen once lay the Schøtstuene, which was the

everything from tasty light dishes to large (and good) main courses. Bryggen
Tracteursted is one of Bergen's quality restaurants, with similar prices. The
address is Bryggestredet 2.

This historic hotel has more to offer in good accommodation. Their small

with more than 1000 drops! This is as far as we know (at the time of writing)
the only bar in the Nordic countries that is on the official "Great Whiskey Bars
of the World" list. Here, too, there are plenty of beers. be in Norway, and most
importantly, the food is good.
The address is Zander Kaaes gate 6, which is basically in the middle of
Bergen city center. You spend about 4 minutes walking to the city park.
Everyone in Bergen, and then we all know, knows the Colonial. They have their
main restaurant at Kong Oscars gate 44 and a brasserie at the Literature House.
A place we recommend.
Nightlife in Bergen
If you are someone who appreciates the nightlife in the evening and night
time, then Bergen is the place for you. There are plenty of pubs and music
venues. And the atmosphere is mostly very nice and relaxed. Pubs, music bars
with live music and small intimate pubs can be found all over Bergen. Garage is
a "rock pub" which is an institution in itself in Bergen. There are still
concerts here. You will find Garage in Christiesgate 14 and the pub is the place
where all music lovers find themselves. However, we make a reservation for you
who like the type of classical music more, and recommend that you check out the
program in the Grieg Hall.
The nightlife in Bergen is naturally characterized by the fact that Bergen is
a university town, but there are plenty of people from the older guard who take
a trip out as well.
Some well-known night spots in Bergen are:
- Scruffy Murphys on Square 15.
- Grand Whiskey Bar, Hotel Grand Terminus, Zander Kaaesgt. 6
- Dyvekes wine cellar, Hollendergt 7
- Dickensand the Office Bar, King Olav V's place 4
If you are visiting a nightclub, we suggest Bryggen Nightclub or Metro. Both
nightclubs can be found in each Radisson Blu hotel. One at Bryggen and the other
at Nedre Ole Bulls place 4.
