We stopped here randomly for lunch and to get away from the rain. Ended up sharing a pizza, and it was really good! Would also recommend the garlic dressing :)

Pillarguri Cáfe is one of my favourite places to go socialising. Situated in the center of Otta, vis-a-vis the shopping-center, it makes the perfect place for a stop-over. Wonderful people providing excellent service, good food and a variety of beverages. The café is newly renovated resulting in a cosy interior and atmosphere. The outdoors seating area is much appreciated in... More

We only had the pizza, but it was very good. Child friendly with high chair and a small table where kids can play. Nice atmosphere.

Pillarguri is a really nice Cafe/Bar located in center of Otta. The personnel is really nice and delivers a very good service.

The food is also good and the prices is about the average for norwegian restaurants.... More

Got the wrong dish two times. The waiter did not understand when we tried to explain what we had paid for, so we gave up an ate it anyway.

It is not very difficult to make a good and tasty pizza. But the chef at Pillarguri do not know how to do it. The locals recommended this place, and pointed out that the pizza is very good.

We had a great time at the Pillarguri Cafe. The beer was good and the pizza was excellent. One of our friends played the piano in the center of the restaurant and everybody sang along. I wish I had gone there more often during my few days in Otta. Others in my group kept saying the food was very good.

Attractive restaurant, great service, great salad and beer. Pizza was good if you like thick-crust pizza. Outdoor seating was comfortable - there are heatlamps if you get chilly.
