Nice food and reasonable value for Norway!

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

Went to Pygmalion for lunch after hearing lots of good stuff about the place. The place was not that big and full of people, a little unusual for us to have to share a table with strangers, but it was not a big deal for our experience there. The staff was friendly, and the food was good. We ordered beef... More

My friend and I came here on Valentine's day evening when we found out most places had been booked up, we were advised that we could wait quite a long time for a seat to become available but the lovely staff managed to fit us in. The place was busy with a little kitchen and staff members constantly on the... More

Nice cosy atmosphere with organic food! It is also more reasonably priced than other places. The burger was fantastic and I also really liked their pancakes.

Finding a place to eat for vegetarians in Bergen can be challenge, and I think this is the best place I've eaten. It's not too expensive, the food is organic and very tasty. They have both vegetarian and vegan options! It is also a gallery, and I loved the art on the walls.

This small place has a nice atmosphere and decent vegetarian food, even though there are only two warm dishes for the ant-meat lobby.

I had the opportunity to frequent Pygmalion several times during my trip to Bergen and it was always a delight. The atmosphere was cozy and the service was friendly and prompt. I enjoyed drinking their coffee and lattes while sitting in one of the high-top chairs facing the street and reading a book on a rainy day.

It just makes my day when I find great eco-cafees that give vegetarian options. It really made this day! I had a lentil burger with fried potatoes and salad. This place is easy to find as it is next door to the YMCA. The atmosphere is good and the prices are not bad for real homemade ecological food! :D
