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. 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.
5 course Meteorological menu: Inspired by the weather of the day, Cornelius serves its famous Five-course Meteorological Menu of exquisite seafood and trimmings, prepared using innovative culinary techniques and with a genuine passion for seafood.
Upgrade to Shellfish platter: You can also order the Shellfish platter for 100.- extra per person. Minimum 2 persons. This must be ordered by 12 noon on the same day. Teh shellfish platter includes various seafood from the shellfish tower and tanks on the pier, – so this is truly the catch of the day! Examples might be oysters, sea urchins, scallops, langoustines and crab claws. Our famous shellfish soup is served in addition to the fresh shellfish (no lobster included in this platter).
Upgrade to Cornelius Plett menu: You can also order the Cornelius menu for 450.- extra per person. Minimum 2 persons. This must be ordered by 12 noon on the same day. Choose the Cornelius Plett if you want to spoil yourself with all of the above in addition to lobster, fish of the day and our own smoked salmon.
The content of our shellfish menus will vary in line with seasonal fluctuations. The seafood platters are always accompanied with salad, dressings and home baked bread.
