Besides it opens earlier than most of the others and you could have lunch here, it's an ordinary cafe. There is a cool waiter (or owner) here without any smile during the 1 hour we stayed there. Some paintings for sell on the wall.

This is a place for good ecologic food, very central, but not very posh or expensive. They have good sandwiches, good meat, good burgers, good salads, but the Pygmalion pancakes (crepes with fillings) are what they are most known for. A nice place!

Charming little health food place with FABULOUS food! The veggie burger was so wonderful. Made with Lentils, nuts and veggies with the best fat HOMEMADE fries ever. Loved it so much going back for dinner tonight. What a great find in Bergen! Free Wifi and lovely service

Sort of stumbled across this restaurant and we were so glad we did! Sat outside at first but got a bit chilly so headed inside. Restaurant had a really nice feel to it and we spent a very comfortable few hours eating our lovely food and chatting. It was our mum's birthday so we wanted to stay as long as... More

Me and my friend were visiting from the US and decided to give this place a try. Not only did the restaurant have charm but also the most amazing food! We both had the Chicken Salad and it was to die for. Safe to say the best I've ever had!

My server didn't know the number of the table I was sitting at, and ended up giving my food away to someone else. The food was ok but tasted of rage at the horrible service

Pygmalion ticked off the right checkboxes for us, plenty of vegetarian options, a real-honest kids menu and a pleasant outside seating area. But in the end, we were disappointed. We sat outside at Pygmalion for lunch on a busy Saturday afternoon at the end of August. The service was great. We were trying to crowd around a too-small table, and... More

We were in Bergen for our friend's birthday and were trying to find a special place to go to, so on a whim we settled on Pygmalion. The prices were a little bit on the high end (but it's Bergen, so nothing too unusual), but the food was excellent. I personally got the burger they had, and I wish I... More

Pygmalion provided delicious, organic, unusual foods (such as Caribbean pancakes) in a very warm and relaxing atmosphere. We visited twice, and both times it was pleasantly busy and full of conversation.
