Restaurants and nightlife in Bergen

In Bergen you will find just about everything from tea rooms to gourmet fish restaurants, from small bistros to discotheques, bars and nightclubs.

If you ask a Bergenser, a person from Bergen, where you should go, it is quite likely you will be directed to one of the town's classic hostelries which has drawn customers for decades. There again, you may just as well be shown the way to a bistro which otherwise you would never have found.

Bergen food specialties

Specialties in Bergen are fish soup, smoked and cured salmon, fresh fish (for example catfish and monkfish), "spekesild" (herring), and game and venison (elk, reindeer and deer).
