Description: Right in the middle of Lillehammer, in Molla Hotell, you will find Egon Lillehammer. In the grinding house from 1863 you'll find Egon Restaurant - a warm gathering place where everyone is welcome, with food of every taste. We have an international menu. With ancient rock walls four feet thick, massive beams, giant millstones, tools from the old mill days, and wonderfully intimate nooks and alcoves for dining, a cozy and memorable dining experience awaits you.

We ate lunch here last July 29, 2017 as one of our driving stops to see Lillehammer. Egon restaurant used to be a place of mill's grinding house and is located at the Molla Hotel. When we enter Egon, we picked up the menu, selected our choice of food and ordered them at the counter. My husband had a kebab and I had a beef steaks. It was actually delicious not to mention the cooks are mixed younger students (maybe summer jobs and the owners perhaps on vacation, too) who knows? Egon was the only descent restaurant opened during that Saturday when we were there. However, the city looks very nice to drive around for a few hours including the Lillehammer Olympic Ski Jump. Glad we're here...

This restaurant, part of the Hotel Molla, was always busy and hopping with full tables of happy people. We were hungry and didn’t want to wait on the kitchen so we only had the pizza, which was made ahead of time and kept warm. We were impressed at its quality and taste. Another great thing about Egon is that it has three or four seating options. Outside on the patio is wonderful with the river rushing below and inside you can be on the floor or up on a second level. With interesting things on their menu its too bad we didn’t give it a real chance.

Watch out for their beer sizes. Their small, med and large are really medium, large and extra large. Great beers on tap! Fresh Arctic char was tender and moist. Served with potatoes and veggies. Wait staff was excellent as the place gets super busy.

Keep on walking if you are planing to have the pizza buffe . They have dry and hard pizza slices without taste. ( I will not recommend you to eat here if you don't have dental insurance) And the waiters don't even care about the buffe . We had to go there and ask for new pizza . And the waiting is for ever. Waited one and half hour for the first warm pizza slice .
