I like coming here when I feel like having a healthy meal, or when I want to hide and feel a bit anonymous. Food is pretty good and they have good vegetarian or vegan options. My main reason for going is the atmosphere, which is very cozy. Somehow, despite the main part of the restaurant being a bit small and... More

Here you get proper, organic food at a veeery slow pace. But if you have the time, spend it on a meal here. The food is so tasty, and as vegetarian food is hard to get by in Bergen, we hold Pygmalion in high regard. The atmosphere is very warm and cosy.

I was looking forward to a delicious organic meal as I had read such positive reviews. I ordered the vegetarian salad which was described in the menu as having a mix of veggies including avocado. The salad was mostly iceberg lettuce with some cucumbers and tomato. I think there was a veggie patty on top. The staff was lovely.

We were a party of ten from work, and every single person praised the food. Fantastic echological food and drinks. Generous portions very well presented, at a low cost. The superburger was extremely popular. I myself had the 'Italian dream' - fresh mozzarella on dark bread toasted to perfection, with a lovely salad, oven baked potatoes with spicy aioli on... More

Everything is homemade. Try the superburger. It really is super. It is located away from alle the other tourist restaurants. One of my favorite places in Bergen.

Wanted to avoid the crowded and overpriced restaurants at the main front and ended up here. Excellent food with fresh and organic ingredients. You order your food and drinks inside at the desk and they will bring it to your table.

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
