We had lunch here. Best pancakes with brie and bacon, comes with a salad and guacomole. My friend had warm chicken salad with the best dressing ever. The staff is so nice and friendly and it's very nite and clean, and quaint and cozy. We give it our best recommendation!

Managed to find this lovely cafe tucked away just off the main tourist traps quite by accident, and boy did we luck out. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and seemed really happy to see us. Would recommend the crepes or pancakes, came with a very nice salad, and if you are into it organic, really well done and... More

Booked a table for about 15, not ready when we arrived. Had pre-ordered food, but it was cold when it was served. There is no excuse for cold rice. No knowledge about beer- "we have a bottled organic pale ale". Inexpensive for central Bergen.

I enjoyed the soup and a glass of wine, but there were many more vegetarian choices available. The staff were welcoming but not at all intrusive. I felt very comfortable sitting and eating alone here.

Six of us are on a trip in Norway. We stopped at Pygmalion because several are vegetarian. Everyone loved their food vegetarian and non-vegetarian alike. We also met Oystein, who works there. He was very entertaining and is "waiting for Arnold". If you go there and I highly recommend it--ask him about Arnold! Great food at a reasonable price.

Off on a side street, and not too large, we found this place by accident when a lot of other places were closed. It was crowded, so had potential for a good meal. We were not disappointed. I found their superburger very tasty if a bit unusual in ingredients. Very friendly staff. I would return anytime.

We had the brie/bacon crepes with a salad. The weather was turning terrible and we needed a place to eat and hide for a little while. We came across this place and were beyond happy!!! The food was delicious and the staff was really friendly. Next time we're here we will definitely make a return visit.

This is so far the best restaurant in Bergen with tasteful veggie alternatives. This visit was the last in a row of many the last year. Been all from a company of only one, to a pack of twenty. Always the best service to an affordable price. I'll be back!

Great tasting fresh food with what seemed like quality ingredients. Quick friendly service. Cozy atmosphere with red brick walls and cafe tables. Interesting art with tasteful music.

Went here with another person as the tags said Scandinavic and European food. Was hoping to get some pasta but fortunately there wasn't any which led us to choosing Thai May and Beef Wok. Both dishes were very very nice, full of flavour and big portions. The place was cosy and quite busy as it was the afternoon. Price wise... More
