Food here is good although it is self service (remember table number and order at bar) decent selection of beers and I had a nice steak although we did wait a long time for food to arrive. It's an old converted grain mill on at least for floors so suffers if it's busy I felt. Non the less have another... More

I feel when I go out for dinner I like to order and pay at the table, not in the bar. Pretty small, but tasty porsions.

Although the wine was very expensive (c£50 a litre) this was pretty standard for Norway. In spite of this the food was well presented, hot, varied and reasonably good value. Service too was good - we had a very pleasant evening here and would return.

We visited this place nearly everyday. i'm not a fan of pizza, but I was eating it even twice. The backed potato was excellent. There is a nice small playground for kids and the design of Egon is fine for kids as well. So we could enjoy meal while our daughter was exploring cosy corners with Christmas trees and trolls.

The quality of the food is as one would expect from a comfort food diner. It's good for a quick bite that's a bit better than fast food, but by no means a special meal. The... More

Always overpriced but the staff was nice. Nice view of a stream and the town from the outside. If I had know of other restaurants in town, we would have went somewhere else.

Lots of Pizza and fast food, more like a fridays than a restaurant. Undercooked carrots, awful greek salad, nasty dressing on salad on plate. Messed around nasty food.

Inside you see very thick rock walls - , massive beams, giant millstones, and tools from the old mill days. Very cosy place to eat both for a romantic couple as for groups. Staff is very proffesional and friendly.. It is located in the heart of Lillehammer...
