    • Von Tangens Fiskebar

      All about fish
      Freshly caught crabs, mussels and - of course - fish are the main components of the menu. To match the atmosphere, sailing boats and fishing vessels float in front of the window, raw wooden floorboards and simple Scandinavian design complete the interior. The restaurant’s building was formerly a fish trader’s office and has been nicely restored. Von Tangens Fiskebar is situated right next to the Norwegian Fishing Museum - it is also worth a visit.

      Delicious simplicity
      To Kokker in the old district of Bryggen are experts when it comes to fish and game. The small menu varies according to the season – everything is freshly prepared with regional ingredients.

    • Enhjorningen

      Legendary creature
      At the traditional wharf of Bryggen one façade stands out due to a wooden animal figure with a gilt horn on his forehead: a unicorn. The restaurant of the same name exists since the 13th century – characterised by authenticity and rustic interieur in a wooden style. The kitchen is specialized in delicacy out of the sea as fresh oysters and fish in all variations – the brave may choose the Whale Carpaccio.

      To good to say no
      Homemade cinnamon rolls, cheesecake, delicious carrot cake and oven-fresh large cookies: to resist the sweet temptations in the Lille Kaffekompaniet is nearly impossible. The friendly staff serves amazing coffee. The café is very close to the Floibanen - so why not combine the visit with a flight to the Floyen?
