Nikkers is a nice restaurant with a nice atmosphere and a rustic interior. The food is good and hearty relatively inexpensive. I have visited this restaurant with years apart and the quality is consistently good. Recommendable restaurant

A nice casual bar / diner. Right opposite the Flamingo Bar of "Lilyhammer" fame. The food was excellent, no feeling of being hurried along, toasty warm whilst it was -6 degrees outside. Just a nice ambience.. No complaints...

Not bad, stiff prices as most Norwegian eating places, but we'll done and an ample menu. It's a posh, sports, alpine diner with an Olympic history. The roaring fireplace makes the difference.

At our stay in Lillehammer we came across Nikkers by chance. Walking down the main street it is easy to miss the place but we managed to find it. We choosed a table outside near the water fall and it was nice, even though the noice from the water made it a little hard to have a conversation, but that... More

Nikkers is the place to have lunch when visiting Lillehammer. The very Norwegian interiør and style gives a nice atmosphere and the service is friendly and nice. I had a trufle burger and it has the right balance in taste, not too much. The location close to the Main Street is good. Highly recommendable place.

There are many restaurants in the area but this one looked nice. We had a table outdoors facing the river. The food was good but a bit slow service. We had a caesar salad and grilled salmon. The were out of the beer I wanted but another IPA was OK.

Having booked a table earlier (indoors - did not fancy the terrace with its smokers). my wife and I headed to this well-reviewed restaurant.We had hoped to have the game stew but as this was for at least two people and contained peppers to which my wife is allergic, this was not an option. We both had burgers – one... More

Visited here for lunch during high season. Serving staff need significant training. We were seated and then instructed to go and get our own menus from the register (weird, right? Maybe it is a Scandinavian thing?) We went and got our own menu and waited for ages for service. Food came reasonably quickly and was filling and delicious for a... More
