We had dinner at Cornelius for the second time, and it was just as good as we remembered it. The quality of the food, wine and service is really high, and you feel so welcome in this restaurant. The whole idea with the boat trip...More

On a tour of Scandinavia, this has been the best dining experience. We were treated to a monologue by the owner, great wines, excellent descriptions of the different courses and elegant food presentations, plus quality taste. Great sunset view, too. Will remain a fond memory...More

I recommend this place more for the setting than for the food. We went there for our last evening in Norway and we loved it. The setting is lovely and the boat ride is worth it. The food choice is limited and they do not...More

Went here as part of a group to celebrate a colleague's retirement and had the '3-course Meteorological Menu'. (The 3-course designation includes the dessert at the end.) The appetizer consisted of a small piece of salmon, with garnish, described by the waiter as locally-sourced. Although...More

The boat trip there and back is comfortable and a great start (although the crew weren't the most welcoming!), the sun setting on our return at 11pm was magical and the setting of the restaurant on its own island is very special, however some areas...More

Interesting boat trip to the restaurant and then a exquisite tasting menu with paired wines, expertly presented and explained by the chefs. Prices were reasonable and whole experience memorable.

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. It is situated right by the sea on a small island with spectacular views of the fjord, mountains, skerries and 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. Cornelius is open all year. On beautiful summer days, we open the sliding doors and set up tables on the pier, where we serve lighter dishes. When the weather is less favourable, we create a cosy atmosphere indoors and serve food with stronger flavours and light up the candles and the fireplace. Every season - every day - we offer unique and exciting culinary experiences on Holmen. Experience a beautiful trip among the skerries, from Bryggen wharf in the City of Bergen to Holmen at Bjoroy. Regular departures at 18.00 from Dreggekaien on Bryggen (shed no. 8) opposite Radisson Blu Royal Hotel and Clarion Collection Hotel Havnekontoret. Return from Holmen at 22.30. The boat trip takes 25 minutes. Warm, safe boats take you back and forth in comfort, - regardless of the weather. Please contact us if you want to charter a private boat. During the summer months we have regular departures for lunch Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.
