Was on a work trip to Bergen and spotted this cozy restaurant around my hotel for dinner. Didn't get a place at first as it's incredibly popular but went back after a while and was immediately seated. The juicy burger was great as was the house wine. And all for a very reasonable price (by Norwegian standards) in the heart... More

Good food, very cozy atmosphere, affordable prices. Vegan options available. Was a bit crowded when we came in (around 4 PM), but after checking the menu and deciding what to eat the first table was available.

We asked at the Visitor's Center for a local cafe, cheap eat, for lunch. We were side tracked at lunchtime, but went for dinner instead and can highly recommend this lovely cafe. Generous portions, fresh local ingredients, fabulous service. Husband ordered the Super Burger and ate every last crumb, certainly nowhere near the realm of the fast food burgers. The... More

Visited on a busy Saturday evening and made very welcome even though I was by myself. It's a little out of the way amongst many other places to eat but well worth the effort to track down. Fairly limited menu but something for everyone. Obviously popular with the locals so that's a very positive indication.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for somewhere to eat in Bergen. The menu is full of lovely, reasonably priced food options. Staff are attentive and helpful with excellent English. We were very impressed with the food we ate and would highly recommend this restaurant.

After eating in hostels for the past few days it was nice to find a restaurant that did a good few Vegetarian options. I ate the super veggie burger, which was great but all the food looked good. Great portion sizes and lovely staff.

Stumbled upon Pygmalion, desperate for some vegetarian food, and they didn't disappoint. The veggie burger was delicious, and much bigger than I expected. The restaurant's atmosphere is very welcoming and I could easily see myself spending an afternoon hanging out in there.

Good food at reasonable prices (under 10 USD) is almost impossible to find in Norway. This comes close to it. You can find it for 15 USD but be informed that portion sizes are going to be much smaller than what you are used to in the US or other countries. I guess that is how Norwegians stay fit! The...

Very cozy cafe with a good atmosphere. The food is delicious and apparently organic if you're into it. The "Caribbean..." pancakes are my favorite. You are supposed to order at the counter, so waiting for the waiter to take your order is pointless:) the existent service is ok. They don't always clean tables on time and well though.

This is a small and cozy restaurant with very friendly staff. Our chicken wok main course was very good and tasty. The apple cake as dessert was also ok, but with cream that tasted as if it was from a can, which was a little weird at an ecological cafe. All in all, however, a good experience.
