Where to eat and drink for a resonable price?

by karlotta14

Hi myself and 2 friends are staying for 3 days in Bergen in August, before we travel up the coastline. Can any member recommend some good places to eat and drink for a reasonable price. We are aware that Norway is extremely expensive and would love some guidance on this. We particularly like wine !! ?

Thanks to all the tips on the Bergen/Norway pages, I have been compiling them for my travelguide.

Buy food at a supermarket, drink wine on another trip. We wanted to buy wine as a present, we were told that you can buy it only in a wine store, there was a very high tax.
We wanted to buy a less expensive shrimp sandwich in Bergen. When we opened the clingfilm cover of the roll – the roll wasn't cut up and filled, but a little filling was laid at the side of the roll and fixed with the plastic film.

Depending on where you're staying, the place might have an extensive buffet for breakfast. Many people make up a sandwich from the breads/meats/cheeses to take along for their lunch. (On one occasion, though, the management had a sign asking people not to do this.)

As the other person who replied mentioned, get your food at the supermarket. These often have hot foods such as barbecued chicken (can be bought in pieces, not the whole chicken) and pasta-like foods.

Bergen also has a cheap waffle restaurant where you can waffles for about £1 and good coffee for that, too. Also open-faced sandwiches with hard-boiled egg, shrimp, and lettuce for a very reasonable price. Look around for affordable eats. In the Lofoten, I found a Chinese restaurant and could only eat half of what they served, so they wrapped up the rest and I had 2 meals for the price of one. Of course it helped that the place where I was staying allowed me to heat the remainder up the next day.

Thank you for your reply. Thanks for the food tips...The availability of reasonably priced alcohol seems to be the biggest problem we may have!
Thanks again.

Thank you for your tips. We are lucky to be staying in an hotel with breakfast provided. I think the best thing for the wine - is to find a happy hour!

Travel Tips for Bergen

Ole Bull

by Marpessa

The picture is of Ole Bull (1810-1880) and can be found at Ole Bullsplass, Bergen. To be honest when I took this picture I had no idea of who 'Ole' was, I just thought the statue and fountain were beautiful.

It was only when I got home that I found out Ole Bull was/is a famous violinist from Bergen who "entertained a strong conviction that Norway should generate its own national art"
(taken from www.violinman.com/Violin_Family/performer/Violinist/bull/0001.htm)

You can see the whole city...

by Hi_Im_Phil

You can see the whole city from the top of one of the seven mountains surrounding Bergen and the way you get there is also kind of interesting. The Fløibanen takes you up the mountain (it's a type of railcar that's angled up the side of the mountain) to an overlook of the entire city and the other mountains. At the top there's also a restaurant and some gift shops. And a gigantic troll (see photo). These trolls are everywhere in Sweden and Norway, but moreso in Norway. They're in books, calendars, figurines, pens, anything you can imagine.

Hansa Bryggen

by daarth

An important part of Bergen's identity is the old wooden warf buildings called "Bryggen"

Bryggen was placed on UNESCO's World Heritage list in 1979 and is now one of 4 sites on that list from Norway. These old warf buildings date back to the 14th century when Bergen was part of the Hanseatic League's trading empire. Another known (and the largest) Hansa city is Lübeck in Germany.
