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.

I love this tiny, cute, cosy restaurant! Its hidden from the main street so its not noisy. It attracts its cosines, simplicity, and great, delicious, fresh food.

We found this restaurant when visiting Bergen on holiday. The menu isn't huge but the food we had was fantastic. The chicken burger with avocado is not your standard burger, it came with provencal potatoes and the tastiest sauce! The chocolate brownie made with spelt flour was so good and the homemade carrot cake was delicious. The food is very... More

My wife is a vegetarian and Bergen has limited options for us so Pygmalion offered us some options so we went there on our first night in the city and had a pleasant experience. Working out the protocol of ordering at the counter was fine and the food and service were good. We decided to go there for a second... More
