We wanted to stick to Norwegian restaurants, so wouldn't have gone to Dickens, but our cousins (locals) suggested we meet for lunch one day. what a surprise. Great space, atmosphere, location. And the food was, at least, was pure Norway. Fresh fish, mussels. Delicious!

Had dinner at the restaurant today. The fillet of deer was excellent. The price was a little high but well worth it.

We had a decent meal here - both go the burgers. The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful. They didn't mind that we don't speak a word of Norwegian. It is rather expensive though!

Right in the center of Bergen, and rather large, so it's hard to miss. The menu looked good, so we gave it a try. Well, the fish soup was just so wonderful that we came back when we were in Bergen a couple weeks later,...More
