Very cozy cafe with a good atmosphere. The food is delicious and apparently organic if you're into it. The "Caribbean..." pancakes are my favorite. You are supposed to order at the counter, so waiting for the waiter to take your order is pointless:) the existent service is ok. They don't always clean tables on time and well though.

This is a small and cozy restaurant with very friendly staff. Our chicken wok main course was very good and tasty. The apple cake as dessert was also ok, but with cream that tasted as if it was from a can, which was a little weird at an ecological cafe. All in all, however, a good experience.

I love this tiny, cute, cosy restaurant! Its hidden from the main street so its not noisy. It attracts its cosines, simplicity, and great, delicious, fresh food.

We found this restaurant when visiting Bergen on holiday. The menu isn't huge but the food we had was fantastic. The chicken burger with avocado is not your standard burger, it came with provencal potatoes and the tastiest sauce! The chocolate brownie made with spelt flour was so good and the homemade carrot cake was delicious. The food is very... More

My wife is a vegetarian and Bergen has limited options for us so Pygmalion offered us some options so we went there on our first night in the city and had a pleasant experience. Working out the protocol of ordering at the counter was fine and the food and service were good. We decided to go there for a second... More

I came across Pygmalion by chance, and really enjoyed a vegetarian dinner. The food was delicious and the serving generous. The restaurant is small, and seating was tight on a busy summer evening, but he ambience was quite informal and friendly. One negative: the smokers could have stepped away from the entrance so smoke wouldn't drift in every time the... More

My husband and I were looking for a place for lunch and found this little gem. We had eaten at a more well know restaurant the day before and wanted something different. He had the burger and I had the salad and they were fantastic. The apple cake is also very good. The prices and service were excellent as well.

I had my first experience with Pygmalion 8 or 9 years ago. Both service and food were great. Place was (and is) full of charm. 4 years later it was already not worth it anymore. Food wasn't as good anymore. Last year I gave it a chance again only to be extremely disappointed. No service, you have to pay and... More

I had the Thai style wok two days in a row for lunch--super delicious. Just try to ignore the dead sheep that cover some of the chairs!

Pygmalion is located at Bergen's YMCA beautiful building and offers a relaxed warm indoors sitting and some outdoors sitting too. Tasty fusion food (Italian, Thai, crepes and more) and home made deserts made us happy. We were slightly dissappointed with the bruscetta called Italian Dream - it was served on spelt bread and was far too small to be someone's... More
