In 2010, Fiskeriet saw the light of day and fast became one of the best known fish markets and places to be and be seen. They are also known to have the best Fish and Chips in town!
For more than 80 years, the location that now houses Fiskeriet was one of the capital`s most popular fish markets: Erling Moe.
After a total renovation of the main building in 2007, leaving the space empty, some fishermen and business people decided to go back to their roots, creating a new fishmarket.
Fiskeriet is often mentioned in international food, lifestyle and in-flight magazines. The ambitious people behind the market and seafood bar wanted to bring a little bit of the Southern European ambiance up to the cold North. By adding a bar and keeping the floor plan open, we wanted to make the best out of a rather small space. We also wanted to provide people with different ways to engage and move with the space. With colourful tiles and mosaics resembling the sea, and a large floor to ceiling artwork by the Italian artist Tommaso Garner, we hope we brought the south and the north a bit closer.
