Cornelius is a seafood restaurant situated on Holmen – a tiny islet in the archipelago outside Bergen. If you book a table for lunch or dinner, a 25 minutes boat ride from Bryggen (the docks) in Bergen city center is included in the price. That makes Cornelius more than just a good meal, it’s a full-on maritime experience! Co-owner and passionate diver, Alf Roald Sætre, goes by the nicknames “Skjellmannen” (the shell man) and Oyster Dundee. On the day of my visit, he had just surfaced after diving for horse mussels, which we later enjoyed as a starter before the spectacular seafood platter. Various shellfish and marine mollusks are kept in seawater tanks to assure as fresh produce as possible arrives on your plate.
