Good food and feels like home

The food was very tasty. I've had garlic bread and Thai may veggie. It was very good and the garlic bread was with green spread. Must try. Excellent cozy atmosphere, home like feeling. Service was also nice .

Food was ok, nothing out of the ordinary. You had to set your own table and the spacing was horrible tight. We was 4 people but place on a table for 6 with two other guests.

We had the Veggie and a regular burger and the bruschetta and everything was quite delicious. There are many good restaurants for meat eaters in Bergen but if you're a vegetarian, you should definitely try the Pygmalion! The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Plus, there's interested art on the walls, which can partly be purchased.

This may be the best salad with chicken I've eaten. Delicious dressing with a bit of curry. The green olives ARE the best I've had. Gluten free bread available for me with a delicious pesto/garlic spread. Good atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and the rating was a draw. The food was a small step above something warmed up out of a freezer (avoid the stir fry) and the staff was very rude to us. They overcharged us and started to belittle us when I pointed out that they charged us for two appetizers when we... More

Lovely small restaurant/cafe with super friendly staff, nice cozy atmosphere and great food. It even has three vegan options and we could have eaten several kilos of their potatoes, they where so good! The Burger was great and the vegan salad as well. We haven't eaten as well as here in any other restaurant we went to during our 3... More

Oh the relief of finding this place! Bergen is not great for vegetarians, who, BTW, do NOTICE eat fish. So it was with real pleasure that we found a non-cheese based meal at Pygmalian. You can't book but it's so central that we just popped back and got a table. So good that we ate here twice!

Eating dinner at pygmalion was a great experience whilst on holiday in Bergen. I had garlic bread and a chicken burger, both of which were delicious. The service was exceptional, whilst the atmosphere was welcoming and calm.

This cozy bistro with it's whimsical atmosphere entices the diner, even before the meal. A thoughtful menu offers a variety for lunch or dinner. Friendly service adds to the experience and a wine list that compliments tasty offerings bring this relaxed taste treat to the forefront of memorable meal pastimes. A unique and pleasant appetite treat.
