Are you a shellfish lover? Try the one of a kind shellfish tower at Cornelius, known to be one of Norway’s best seafood restaurants. The restaurant is located on a small island only accessible by boat. You will therefore start your restaurant visit with a relaxing 25-minute boat ride from downtown Bergen.

Travel to an idyllic island by boat and enjoy a decadent feast of shellfish while you gaze in awe at the surrounding landscape. Inspired by the local weather and natural, rugged beauty of Bergen, this "fjord to table" feast features seasonal catches and Cornelius Seafood Restaurant's signature dish, littoral crab soup.

The Shellfish Tower is ideal for 2 or more people, and can feature everything from hand-picked mahogany clams, horse mussels and Norwegian flat oysters to scallops, sea urchins, shrimp and Norwegian brown crab. Upgrade your dinner to enjoy lobster as well!

The restaurant is located right by the sea with spectacular views of the fjord, skerries, mountains and passing boats.
