Visited the establishment with an old friend and had a three-course meal. Started with an apertiff and then asked the Waiter if they had a special "wine-offer".

The servant recommended us jaws of monkfish. we tried it. the monkfish tasted quite ordinary. more spice could improve the taste of the monkfish. the deer was good, but the duck was almost raw and lached a spicy flavour. the cellar was an interesting place, but the inverted U in the roof reinforced the noise among the guest. This fact... More

All twelve of us enjoyed fabulous food and great service in the potato cellar. The wine list was nice and food choices were excellent. I enjoyed an excellent deer dinner. Perfect.

We happened upon the "potato cellar" in our wanderings around the port and after reading the menu, made a reservation for the following night. The owner, a charming young som, seated us and saw to our varied wine tastes with a knowledgeable charm. The poached halibut in a light cream sauce with veggies was delicious as was the crab meat...

So we went here, knowing it´s re-opened after going bankrupt, but hearing it´s still as good.

Six of us went to dine on a rainy Saturday evening in Bergen. First and most importantly, make reservations. Fine dining in Bergen is popular and I have seen many a group turned away if trying without making reservations.

Hi! Thank you for your review here on Tripadvisor. We are very glad you enjoyed your meal here at Potetkjelleren. The uneven stairs and floor are the charm (and challenge) of a 600 year old bulding. We hope to see you again. Best wishes Aleksander, Potetkjelleren More
