My partner and I like to eat at places where the locals would! Boy did we get this spot! It's humble, filling and nothing screams more Bergen/Norwegian than here! Home of seafood! If you don't like seafood you're in the wrong country for sure. We had 2 fish cakes, a small fish soup and plukkfisk under 180NOK between us (under... More

This was a great stop for lunch during my day exploring Bergen. I had the fish soup and plukkfisk, and both were solid choices. I was there just after the traditional lunch crowd, so I was able to ask questions about the different items without feeling rushed. The employees behind the counter were also patient enough to explain the different... More

I seen this on trip advisor and thought I had to check it out myself! We had the fish burger and the soup, which I believe this place is famous for. I thought the burger was nice but the soup was better - Reasonably priced too. You can see lots of local people come for lunch which shows the place... More

Really good fishcakes and fiskeboller! Really like that you can buy it and take it home to prepare, eks: if you're making fiskeboller with curry.

Nice little old restaurant with proper fish soup and nice wraps, however I didn't like the taste of their fish cake, it was like eating a hot dog sausage taste like fish so it was weird...but the fiskesuppe was the best I had!

Coming from a country where we have our own type of fish cakes, eating the fish cakes they offered here was an mouth-watering surprise. Both the taste and texture was totally different from the fish cakes in South East Asia where I come from, and they were so good to the point that I couldn't help but to add-on to... More

Recommend by the local as original family business. Fishcakes were really nice, they have so many options so it's hard to guess or chose. Definitely recommend if you like fish.

Read about it on a must to do list of restaurant as this is an established restaurant. Service is super good and friendly on the wallet. We ordered all types of fishcakes and a soup and I would say it's actually not bad. Worth a try if you are in the area.

"Søstrene Hagelin" is one of my favourites for lunch when I am in Bergen, Norway. On the meny they have fishsoup, fishburgers and wraps to affordable prices. Today I tried a fishburger with salsa. A winner🎉

A local recommended me this place, and especially the fish soup and the fish cakes. It is known as the place with the best fish soup in Bergen. To be honest, I found it ok, but I would not describe it as the best in Bergen. It's ok and cheaper than at the normal restaurant, but not the best.
