We had dinner here, sitting outside. It is an interesting street to sit in with lots of people walking by. You have to get a menu from inside and order at the till in the restaurant. We had bruschetta followed by burgers and finished with carrot cake. All of the food was delicious and the portions were generous. If you... More

Bergen in the summer is swarming with cruise passengers and the harbour front is largely tailored to this. Just one street back though is this small,buzzy privately owned restaurant which is justly popular with mainly young locals. Much of the food is organic and there is a good selection for veggies with reasonable prices. Expect to wait for a table... More

My fiance and I have been in Pygmalion today.. He had order pancakes and I had order the scampi salad... It was good.. Good taste of ajioli in the salads but nothing extraordinary, plates medium size and the food came fast even when the restaurant was full.. I would like to come back and try some other dishes as well..... More

I really enjoyed the vegetarian lasagna but my colleague took a salad and vegie burger and it was almost identical, something the waiter should have said something.

Tasty food, the scampi salat was simply amazing with their own pesto. Make sure to have some time to eat here because the waiting was long (approx 40 min). Also the home made pankakes Classic Pygmalion deserves a thumbs up! :)

We enjoyed the vegetarian home made burger at Pygmalion. It is like a world cafe in the middle of Bergen. Lovely atmosphere, good fresh food and cheerful staff.

I went over the road from my hotel (Scandic Strand) having read the good reviews of this place and it didn't disappoint. Excellent, tasty food and a pleasant fairly laid-back atmosphere. I had the Thai vegetable dish followed by the apple cake and both were very good. You order the food from the bar but the waitress brings it to... More

My friends and I stumbled on this place as we were looking for moderately (given Norway prices) cheap food with a few vegetarian friendly dishes, and I'm so glad we came in. The place was packed, but a kind diner sitting at a six person table went ahead and moved so we could sit down. I ended up getting the... More

This is an excellent little cafe/eatery in Bergen, well worth a visit for lunch, dinner or just a quick drink. Really nice, relaxed coffee shop vibe with a well-stocked bar of coffee options. We came back for dinner in the evening and it didn't disappoint - the burgers are about £16 which is fairly reasonable for Norway, with a big,... More
