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

Found this jewel of a place in a side street in old town. Very popular with locals. Next to Youth Hostel. Food was excellent, service was good and prices were very reasonable.

This is a little sandwich afe next to the youth hostel. It is good for sitting outside and watching the people. The food was well done with nice fresh veggies in the stir fry.

Really good food! Everything tasted fresh. Also the people were friendly and helping. Good place to go if you have some food allergies as well!

The reviews for this place were so amazing we had to visit. We were decidedly underwhelmed. When we arrived we stood awkwardly by the door (ignored by the staff) until someone showed us in. We were then informed we had to order at the counter (not really a restaurant experience). When our food came one of the dishes was wrong.... More

2 years ago when I visited Bergen there were hardly any healthy eating options. Now there are many galore and Pygmalion is one of them. Even though unfortunately they are not all veg, nonetheless they take their veg stuff seriously. We had the veg lasagna, veg wrap and the bruschetta. They were all good perhaps a bit on the bland...

We went for lunch. Nothing extraordinary on the menu but the salads were tasty and the waitress was very nice. A good experience for a reasonable price

We dined at Pygmalion with two families for dinner. They served great sandwiches in a short time. Kids' options were only pancakes but they were happy to split a burger two ways. Overall very good food and friendly staff!
