Kjeller'n Restaurant is located in the basement of Scandic Grimstad, in the midst of the charming town centre of Grimstad. It is one of the better restaurants in town, with a varied menu focusing on the usage of local food. The atmosphere is very cozy and intimate and suitable for both business dinner, a romantic meal and a cheerful night out with friends and family.
