Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Just a 15 minute walk from the square we found this delightful old pub on a rainy day in October. Young musicians played old jazz and the whole house was swinging. We found out this place is a location for jazz every Sunday at 2pm...and we will definetly come back.More

Took some friends here for a beer last weekend. Weather was lovely so it is good to sit outside. Probably one of few pubs in trondheim where it is good to sit curbside since there is no cars allowed on that street. If you want...to get away from more "commercial" bars, Ila Brannstasjon is a great place...More

Been here several times without really knowing anyone here. Friendly atmosphere has led to us talking to new people every time. Older clientellm, but loads of interesting people here.

Convivial, down-to-earth cafe-pub which hosts music events by night. Friendly, rocking crowd. I was lucky enough to catch some very good music - first a young indie-rock band, second an older group doing surf rock, Beatles etc covers. There's an outside area at the back...with tables and chairs - if I remember correctly, this is where people go to smoke. Prices about average for NO. IIRC, wifi is available. If I'm not mistaken, the locale's name "Ila Brainnstasjon" comes from what was once a local train station. I chanced upon this place as it was near my accommodation. One of the highlights of my recent visit to Norway. Highly recommended.More

Had an amazing evening with great concert and good beer. If you are looking for fine dining and luxury - don't go here. Looking for a cozy place, service and athmosphere - here is your place! The concert - a tribute to Tom Waits -...was excellent!More

If you are in the neighbourhood of Ila, this is probably the place to go to have a coffee or a beer. It is small and cosy, with nice people, it has a few options for drinks and snacks and sometimes they host some nice...small concerts with local artists.More

Went in for a quick supper, I tried the chicken pita and my boyfriend had a burger. Both were really good, and really cheap! The place is tiny, but has a nice atmosphere and a bunch of board games one can use. They also have...concerts and stuff, worth a visit :)More

This is a great place to go when you want something different. It is small and cozy with very eclectic patrons, especially on music nights. It feels a like those places where you could imagine artists and authors used to (or still do?) get together...for lively discussions. On most Thursdays, though, it gets extremely busy with Norwegian Språkkafe meetings, but it all adds to the atmosphere.More
