We carefully opened Solstrand on April 26, 2021

Food & Drink

White tablecloths. Lit candles. The fjord and the mountains right outside. The stillness descends around the table: fresh fish and shellfish from Bjørnafjorden and the sea. Lamb that has grazed along steep mountainsides. Fruit and berries from lush fjord branches. Life along the coast inspires us, and the season’s produce determines the menu.

Evening menu

Each night the kitchen presents a three-course menu based on the season and its offerings. Mountain, fjord and sea are at the core of everything we serve. We like to impart new flavors, just as the traders and mariners have always done.


Monday-Friday 07.00-10.00

Saturday and sunday 07.00-10.30

Welcome to a breakfast table with friut, fresh bread and quality cheeses. We serve warm and cold dishes, ham and cheese from Fana, apples and juice from Hardanger and eggs from the neighboring farm. Good morning!


Monday-Friday 12.00-14.00

Saturday and sunday 13.00-15.00

On weekdays we serve a nice and healthy two-course menu which varies with seasonal ingredients.

Sunday Lunch


Since 1896 the Sunday lunch has been a lovely spot to gather family and friends for a wander along the seafront, play in the garden and a visit to the pools and saunas. Here we present Nordic flavors and Western Norway’s culinary traditions including fish, shellfish, lamb and red deer. Welcome to the table.

Due to Covid-19 we are currently not serving Sunday lunch.


Those native to Bergen and Western Norway have celebrated special occasions at Solstrand for several generations. We assist in facilitating a memorable gathering – and perhaps the beginning of your own tradition?
