Simple, clean with vegetarian options

This is a small restaurant in the Bryggen tourist area. You have to order at the counter and they bring it too you. They are focused on organic and "natural" cooking. They serve meat, but the vegetarian options were a nice change of pace.

Went twice to Pygmyalion and the food was superb, especially given the great vegetarian options available and such warm and friendly service from the lovely Agnes who gave us lots of tips and ideas for the city too. Highly recommended abs say hello to Agnes!!

What a lovely cool place to eat and hang out. Great food with super vegetarian options - an oriental curry, a vegetarian burger, etc, served with a warm smile and plenty of good humour by the lovely Silje. Highly recommended

This place sells homemade, organic food of the best quality. It is homely and welcoming. Lots of locals obvious frequent it. Very central.

Stopped by here when we saw the owner (Cece [?]) giving coffee to the local fireman, who were out on a call. When I asked, she said she had very good coffee. She was not lying. We wound up going back there every day for coffee/brownies/meals. All vegetarian, but great food. The Pygmalion Classic crepe was wonderful, as was the... More

A really cosy atmosphere - almost always busy. Good prices and really tasty food. Organic focused but a few great options for veg/vegans. A little off the main strip but only one street back from the central water front. RECOMMENDED!

Called in early morning. Not too expensive (for Norway), very good quality coffees. Quite dimly lit with interesting decor. Great location in the centre of town.

When you accept that all food and drink in Norway is ridiculously expensive even compared to London then this restaurant was quite reasonable. The menu is not very extensive but was very tasty. You order and pay at the bar and the food is brought to you. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

We went here for dinner after searching the city for a good meal. This place is located near the harbor and is a great spot if you are a vegetarian. The meals are reasonably priced. I had the Thai May (170kr-i think) and it was great. We had the veggie burger and beef stir fry which were also very good.... More
