We stopped here for lunch twice and dinner twice. The local produce is fresh and tasty. The Bergen specialities and well worth the visit. Close to the centre and in good distance for a pre theatre meal.

My husband and I visited this establishment to celebrate my birthday...we had reindeer fillet which was really good but unfortunately for me there was no starch and I kinda dont like eating "just" meat. It came with some kind of vegi stripes...didn't like them. However, when my husband asked for the bill the waiter responded with..."together?". I found that offensive... More

Ok, but nothing more. Nothing special, average, expensive, but not the worst. Would probably not visit again.

We came here on our first night in Bergen. There was a good selection of beers & the food was reasonable although quite expensive. A mixture of Norwegian & international food is served here but to be honest we found better places in Bergen.

We have visited it with my parents at late rainy evening. Place was magnificant and charming due to great old fashion design and warm yellow lights inside. We have orderd salmon, cod and mussels. Everything was increadibly delicoius, just melting in the mouth. We have stayed for 5 days, though 3 times we have visited this place, totally worth it!

It is a quaint place with a happy atmosphere. Partially self serve. The food was tasty and portions where good sized. The only down side was the noise level was high. Music was loud. And so people needed to shout to be heard. If you like that sort of thing, have at her. I'll go during g the day and... More

Well located in the middle of town. Food is delicious, service ok. I had the salmon with rigatoni which was surprisingly very good and for dessert the homemade cheesecake. Good place to eat while watching a rainy afternoon.

I arrived in Bergen in the evening and was too tired to look for a restaurant, so I opted for this centrally located, pub-like joint. It was a sunday night and pretty empty but I enjoyed the place. Friendly staff, a menu with both hamburgers and norwegian dishes. I had the hake with yellow beets, blood orange sauce, potato puree... More

In the town centre, this popular restaurant offers fairly diverse and a small menu of dishes; ranging from different kinds of fish, soups, burger, etc. I chose deer fillet which was lovely. Restaurant is well located, spacious and cosy. Staff was very friends. Good easy restaurant

Like dining al fresco? Bergen weather too cold for you? Dickens Restaurant is the perfect choice. The dining area is right on the plaza but enclosed--perfect for people watching. The menu has all the traditional Nordic dishes at decent prices. I had the bergenseren (pickled herring with beat/potato salad.) The bergensk fiskesuppe (fish soup) was excellent. Wait staff was most... More
