Travel by boat to a small island outside Bergen for an exclusive seafood lunch at Cornelius Seafood Restaurant (in Norwegian: Cornelius på Holmen). The menu offers a delicious variety of seafood from Norway’s Westcoast based on the current season and the catch of the day.

This is a lunch for those with a big heart for seafood. The culinary experience begins with a 30-minute tasting session where you will be served local shellfish like mahogany clams and horse mussels. Due to their supreme quality they are of course served raw! If you think oysters are fancy, try eating sea urchin straight from the shell!

Cornelius is one of Norway’s best seafood restaurants, located on a small island outside Bergen. The seafood is delivered on the quay by local divers every day, making each lunch a unique experience. A seasonal dessert is also included.

The island is only accessible by boat and transportation is included. The boat journey starting at Bryggen Wharf downtown, takes 25 minutes and adds to this unique and beautiful experience. You'll enjoy stunning fjord and rocky coastline views along the way.

The restaurant is also located right by the sea with spectacular views of the fjord, skerries, mountains and passing boats. Prepare for a unique feast for the senses!
