Surprisingly fair price!

Expected this place to be overly expensive, but we got a really good dinner for a nice price! The waiters were very nice and effective!

Service level has been average at this restaurant during my earlier visits, but was very good this time. We all had four of five courses from month menu, and the food was very good as always.

Recently, my wife and I had dinner at the Hvelvet. Being from the United States, I found that this was the top rated restaurant in Lillehammer by Trip Advisor. Therefore, we went and ate the five course tasting menu. This was superb! The meal started with a cauliflower soup with truffle. Afterwards, we had Norwegian salmon(in Norway you can eat... More

We have been here several times and the food and service are always at it's best. The chef have worked for several years with the first Scandinavian gold medal winner in Bocuse d'Or, Bent Stiansen. This place is a must if you visit Lillehammer!

We visited the restaurant with our two children of 8 and 11. We were placed in the middle of the room, where a cosy athmosphere was created by four chairs with immense chair backs. Service was excellent: The waiters where well-informed and polite. The food and wine was a non-stop highlight. The restaurant has half prices for children-menu's, which is... More

Food, service and ambience couldn't be faulted, a surprise to find that quality of food here. Stuck to the suggested menu, no need to go a la carte. Bill was still a bit of a shock even by Norwegian stands, be prepared but don't avoid.

This is my favorite restaurant of the 10 days I spent in Norway! The meal was rich and good portion sized. The wine list great too. A bit expensive, but worth it. The ambiance is great!
