I went over the road from my hotel (Scandic Strand) having read the good reviews of this place and it didn't disappoint. Excellent, tasty food and a pleasant fairly laid-back atmosphere. I had the Thai vegetable dish followed by the apple cake and both were very good. You order the food from the bar but the waitress brings it to you.

My friends and I stumbled on this place as we were looking for moderately (given Norway prices) cheap food with a few vegetarian friendly dishes, and I'm so glad we came in. The place was packed, but a kind diner sitting at a six person table went ahead and moved so we could sit down. I ended up getting the Caribbean Temptation, which was absolutely amazing and had just the right amount of spice, and the brownie with ice cream for dessert. The lowest dishes are around 99NOK, and burgers and larger meals are around 160 to 180NOK, but everything is good. There aren't huge portions for the crepes and desserts, but if you get a burger, you will be full. Service was speedy and efficient, particularly considering there was only one guy doing it all. If you go to Bergen, this should be on your list of restaurants to go to.

This is an excellent little cafe/eatery in Bergen, well worth a visit for lunch, dinner or just a quick drink.

Really nice, relaxed coffee shop vibe with a well-stocked bar of coffee options. We came back for dinner in the evening and it didn't disappoint - the burgers are about £16 which is fairly reasonable for Norway, with a big, hand-made beef burger, generous toppings and a good portion of potato wedges. There's also plenty of veggie options which are a rare commodity in Norway.

It did seem quite busy on Saturday night so reserving might be essential for groups at the weekend,

Also be sure to pop round the corner to Dyvekes Vinkjeller around the corner for a beer!

As a vegetarian it can sometimes be difficult to find vegetarian food in a place where vegetarians are not so common. I happened upon Pygmalion's menu and was pleased to see more than one vegetarian option so gave the place a try. The food was delicious, if a little on the cold side, and the prices were very reasonable for Norway's standards.
