Cornelius is well known for its exceptional seafood and wonderful location in the stunning archipelago outside Bergen. Cornelius is not just a restaurant; it’s an adventure into the delights of seafood, serving up one sensational dish after another. Order the Tower of Shellfish and it will arrive constructed from your choice of seafood. In the large, outdoor tanks are living sea urchins, scallops, cockles, crabs, oysters and lobster. Via a TV link, you can watch scallops and other delicacies being caught, and watch the chefs as they transform them into wonderful seafood delights. Also on the menu are enlightening shellfish presentations and a chance to taste raw oysters, sea urchins and scallops. In the outdoor kitchen, gastronomes can gather around an open fire and smoking-oven to soak-up the coastal ambience. But the highlight of the trip, without doubt, is Cornelius's “meteorological” menu. Cornelius’s food and drinks are determined by the time of year, an accomplished chef and the weather gods. If we have good summer weather, we slide open the doors, set tables on the pier, and serve a light, summer menu. If the weather is bad, we set the tables with warm colours, and dine inside in cosy candlelight. Every day you can enjoy a new taste experience!
