Really good fishcakes and fiskeboller! Really like that you can buy it and take it home to prepare, eks: if you're making fiskeboller with curry.

Nice little old restaurant with proper fish soup and nice wraps, however I didn't like the taste of their fish cake, it was like eating a hot dog sausage taste like fish so it was weird...but the fiskesuppe was the best I had!

Coming from a country where we have our own type of fish cakes, eating the fish cakes they offered here was an mouth-watering surprise. Both the taste and texture was totally different from the fish cakes in South East Asia where I come from, and they were so good to the point that I couldn't help but to add-on to... More

Recommend by the local as original family business. Fishcakes were really nice, they have so many options so it's hard to guess or chose. Definitely recommend if you like fish.

Read about it on a must to do list of restaurant as this is an established restaurant. Service is super good and friendly on the wallet. We ordered all types of fishcakes and a soup and I would say it's actually not bad. Worth a try if you are in the area.

"Søstrene Hagelin" is one of my favourites for lunch when I am in Bergen, Norway. On the meny they have fishsoup, fishburgers and wraps to affordable prices. Today I tried a fishburger with salsa. A winner🎉

A local recommended me this place, and especially the fish soup and the fish cakes. It is known as the place with the best fish soup in Bergen. To be honest, I found it ok, but I would not describe it as the best in Bergen. It's ok and cheaper than at the normal restaurant, but not the best.

This is like a fish fast food place, their specialties are fish soup and fish cake. If you want to try some local food but dont want to break your bank, then this is it. The regular fish soup is very creamy, so I opt for the tomato based fish soup which was delicious! Perfect for a cold rainy day.... More

We spent ages looking for this place only to discover the address is right - it's just under a new name as of 2 years ago. Great fish cakes and mashed potatoes with cod for very inexpensive prices!

I was introduced to this eatery by a Norwegian friend living in Bergen. Casual and very clean diner atmosphere with delicious fish cakes and fish soup. Have eaten both a lot in Norway, but soup and fish cakes are excellent. It is "don't miss" stop when in Bergen.
