Torget 5, 5014 Bergen, Norway
I cannot fully reccomend it. The reasons are several. Fish market was established in 11 century and is as old as the city itself. Unfortunately nowadays it has lost its medieval charm. Most of the people working in the market speak several languages and can cook seafood fast. Various types of fish are available. However there are places in other parts of Europe where the authenticity is cherished. At the moment the fish market is a tourist trap unfortunately. Some of the items like Caviar cost 4-5 times less in a local supermarket just outside of it. Locals do not go there either. It's an interesting place to visit however it is too crowded and most of the people working there have little to do with fishing or Norway. Fish market should be a place for locals also, however they tend to avoid it by all means due to huge prices.
For me it's a best place to eat variety of fish and shellfish by the sea (but still can't be compare to Southeast Asia). If you're lucky you'll see the Bergen under the sun. The place also has easy access by the public transport. It is surround by shopping streets and have public toilet nearby.
Great place with fresh seafood. But little pricey for the quality you get here. Not much cooking, just saute and boiled stuff. Fish soup is really good.
Good fun to wander around and see the produce, there is plenty of chance to sit under cover at one of the outdoor restaurants there and enjoy a fresh fish meal. Prices aren't cheap but nothing is here... They work out at reasonable local value. Beer, made locally for the market restaurants is also worth trying with your meal. Nice thing to do while you are in Bergen!
Amazing place. Everyone is so kind. The food is really delicious. We tried several paellas they were all really good. We also tried whale meat. I did not expect to like it in the beginning, but I honestly loved it in the end. Everything is so fresh and delicious at the fishmarket.
