A beautiful boat trip and a unique seafood experience at Cornelius Seafood Restaurant on Holmen island just outside Bergen.
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 quay, 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 a fire in the hearth and candles. Every season – every day – offers unique and exciting culinary experiences on Holmen.
We recommend shellfish legend Alf Roald's famous shellfish talk, which is a fun and educational start to any event. The talk lasts for 40 minutes and usually starts at 18.30. It describes how Cornelius started, and some breakneck business dealings. It is a story spiced with escapades with women, financial ups and downs, innovative use of raw materials and a good deal of Western Norwegian never-say-die spirit!
