The fish, shellfish, lamb, fruit, berries, cider and kveik yeast beer worth the trip for those looking for the best food and drink around.
In 2016, the restaurant RE-NAA was finally crowned with its first magical Michelin star, while a second star followed in 2017, awarded to the acclaimed Sabi Omakase. In 2019, RE-NAA was awarded its second star, and it is now the highest ranking restaurant in Norway.
It may not come as a surprise that the first Michelin stars to be awarded outside the capital went to Stavanger. Restaurants and produce in this part of Norway are highly rated by both national food critics and the Michelin Guide.
The latest star to be awarded in Fjord Norway went to BARE restaurant in 2020, bringing the first Michelin star to Bergen. Ten years of hard work finally paid off, and there was great joy and relief in Bergen when BARE restaurant was awarded one star. Bergen became a member of the UNESCO Creative City Network in 2015. Bergen is one of 36 cities working together on food, creativity and gastronomy, and these cities have been designated ‘Cities of Gastronomy’.
