A gastropub with Norwegian food and beer. Pingvinen upholds the Norwegian traditions.

For over 15 years Pingvinen has been a tradition bearer for Norwegian food in Bergen. To walk into Pingvinen is a bit like entering grandma’s living room. You’ll be served classic rustic dishes like fish pie, meat balls and meat stew. In keeping with tradition, the Norwegian classic raspeballer is served on Thursdays. At the same time Pingvinen isn’t afraid to put modern, self-composed dishes on the menu - but always with a nod to Norwegian produce and tradition.

The gastropub wouldn’t be a pub if it hadn’t been for the rich selection of beer provided. Pingvinen is especially focused on showing Norwegian beer producers and often change the beers on both tap and bottle by season and as new products arrives. The place has all rights and also has a good selection of wine and liquor.

All kinds of people visits PIngvinen – from students who longs home to mum to tourists from all parts of the world who wants a taste of real Norwegian food and drink.

Regarding accessibility for individuals with disabilities, we have an accessible restroom and are located on street level. Please note that it can get busy, and we recommend making a reservation in advance, especially if extra space is needed.
