We had a kiddie free couples weekend and decided to take a night in Lillehammer. Deciding where to eat dinner was split between Bryggerikjelleren and Hvelvet. It was randomly decided and we ordered a table online. Safe to say we weren't disappointed! Saturday night at 8 pm was marked by a pretty large crowd but here was no waiting, an... More

Went visiting with my parents and were looking forward to a tasty meal in a great looking cellar restaurant. Ordered a 300g tenderloin, medium rare, with vegetables, peppersauce and a side of baked potatoes. Meat was really stringy and chewy, in no way tenderloin. Meat was completely raw inside, just barely grilled On both sides. Apparently chef had not been... More

We visited as a party of twenty-something and the experience was pretty awesome. We didn`t have to wait for the food for more than ten minutes and the service was excellent. We had, of course, the best Bryggerikjellern has to offer - their premium steaks with the best side-dishes. Well worth a visit. But at very busy hours the place... More

We are in Lillehammer often, and good food is important! This is by far the place is worth a visit or more ... Always accommodating staff, intimate atmosphere and an excellent wine cellar. The steak here is served just the way you want it, always perfect :) Just continue with what you do best - see no point in changing... More

Took my girlfriend out for a lovely dinner and came to Bryggerikjellern because we had heard good things. It was a Sunday night around 20.00. A few tables in the restaurant were occupied. Service started off well but noticed that the waitresses dissappeared for long periods of time, especially when you needed them. Appetizers were ok. Scampi and Carpaccio. The... More

We where a group of 13 friends visiting on a Saturday for late night dinner. We where recommended to go here for the best steaks in Lillehammer. And that was really the truth. Great selection of meat and also some fish on the menu! Excellent service minded staff and very nice environment in an old brewery. Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our night here. Great atmosphere. Great service. Great food. We tried a couple of their specialty Gin and Tonics and loved them. Recommend this place highly. Would love to come back but just a tad too far from home!

The restaurant is one of the town's most popular, and is located in the old Lillehammer Brewery's beer cellar dating back to 1855. Guests can enjoy the best a la carte menu in town, but remember to make a reservation when you are planning a visit. The elegant bar is located in the heart of the establishment, and is a popular meeting place for anyone looking to enjoy a beer or Gin and Tonic in an old-world setting. A large selection of wines from our extensive wine cellar is also available.
