“If you want to get out of the center, this place and the neighbouring branch Bien Snack bar is very charming. Check out the menu before you set off, though. It is a bit of a walk back if you change your mind. Luckily it sits right by a light rail stop, though. They just opened a pizza place in the city center too that is worth a visit! ”

Scandinavian Restaurant

“Probably the most scenic restaurant in Bergen! You can either walk up or take the cable cart. Please note that this is seasonal (May-October) and subject to weather. You can always walk, but please respect the weather forecast, especially when it’s windy or snowing! There is a zipline on top and also a famous starting point for paragliders (you can book tandem flights online) and «Vidden», a popular hike from Ulriken to Fløyen (takes about 5-8 hours. Only for «mountain goats»!). ”

NB: If you don't specify the size of the bayer you will be served the biggest one! Or just enjoy their sampler plate of beers! ”

Café

“Great place for dinner og lunch, but very popular place so during dinner hours you might have a bit of patience to get a table. Have the chicken confit, the lamb burger, or design your own pizza! Or why not dodge the rush hours and have a nice lunch? They have very good lunch dishes, and their chai tea is one of the best! Very reasonable prices!”
