Lysverket in KODE 4 is a restaurant, bar and nightclub. Lysverket has attracted a lot of attention since it was opened in 2013. It is a distinctly Bergen restaurant with a focus on fresh seafood – but meat and organic vegetables are also on the menu. Lysverket offers the best raw materials from local sources such as sea crayfish, lobster, scallops and world-class oysters. They serve both 4 and 7 courses in the restaurant, as well as an à la Carte menu in the bar area. Co-owner and chef Christopher Haatuft has recently returned from a long stay in the USA, where among other things he was employed at the 3-star Michelin restaurant Per Se – several times rated as the best in NYC and ranked among the world’s 10 best restaurants. Lysverket is ranked as the 3rd best Nordic restaurant by the American lifestyle magazine GQ.

Lysverket can also be booked for private parties. The bar offers an exclusive assortment of beers that are selected from among the best that Nordic microbreweries have to offer. Classic, seasonally based cocktails mixed with Lysverket’s homemade juices and syrups are served here. The kitchen also offers a separate bar menu.
