Some history

The restaurant Bryggeloftet & Stuene originates from 1910 when the property Bryggen 11 in Bergen was built. In those days, the restaurant at ground floor was a part of what was then a hospice at Bryggen. Ever since it opened, the same family has managed the establishment.

Bryggestuen at ground floor with a seating capacity of 90 guests, gradually became a popular place to eat. Although the inhabitants of Bergen represent a large number of our guests, numerous tourists have always found their way to Bryggestuen. Here, our prime location has played an important role. Increased tourism to Bryggen and Bergen has resulted in tourists now constitute a large part of our customers base during the summer season.

During the seventies, the restaurant was extended to include 1st floor and Bryggeloftet was established. The guests seemed to enjoy a restaurant with a view towards Vågen and parts of the fish market. In 1999, Bryggeloftet went through another expansion and can today cater for approx. 185 customers. The interior solution with the restaurant divided into small and large rooms makes Bryggeloftet a popular place for parties such as Company gatherings, Lutefisk parties or Confirmations.

Bryggeloftet & Stuene is a traditional local restaurant with characteristic surroundings that have attracted many regulars. The establishment has an extensive and varied menu offering a wide choice of fish and game dishes based on Norwegian traditions. Every Thursday afternoon (except during the holiday season), Saltkjøtt & Raspeballer is the dish of the day at Bryggen. Through decades, this dish has become a classic and is a welcomed diversion for many of Bergen's inhabitants. The Lutefisk party of the House has also become a tradition for many and nothing is more rewarding than customers showing their appreciation by booking a table for the next Lutefisk party.
