Cozy and vegan-friendly

This is a cozy vegan-friendly restaurant, located in the center of town. They have an English menu. The man at the counter was welcoming, and knew exactly how to customize the dishes to make them vegan. I ordered a vegan burger, which was pretty good, though messy to eat. It arrived with potatoes... read more

For service alone, I should give this place 1 star, but I also understand that accidents happen. After placing my order and paying, I waited for nearly two hours for my meal. If I hadn't already paid and if vegan food was easy to find on every corner of Bergen's streets, I would have just picked up and left, but... More

We sought out the restaurant as we'd read that it had good options for vegetarians. We stepped out of the pouring rain and into the warm, cosy refuge of Pygmalion. We were lucky enough to get one of the few unoccupied tables - many people arrived after us and left disappointed. The menu was available in English, the food was... More

I think I had dinner at this place for the first time nearly ten years ago, and remembered their very good vegetarian burger fondly. So I went there repeatedly when visiting Bergen, also recently, and was never disappointed. Quite happy to report that it's still the same place, serving savory food in a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere.

On my second visit to this establishment I was treated rudely and the food (Chicken sandwich) was one of the worst meals I have had in some time. if you are too tired or too frustrated, you should just shut down for the night rather than antagonize your customers. I repeat very disappointing. My worst food experience in Bergen.

Pygmalion is definitely my favourite restaurant in Bergen, tight and cozy, with delicious, organic food (their vegetarian wok is my favourite dish here), overcoming prices and friendly staff. Book table in afternoons and weekends cause it's very popular!

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.
