This is a very nice and traditional restaurant where I stop by in every every visit in Longyearbyen. Pizzas are very good or then it is just nice to have a beer.

Kroa is a more traditional restaurant with a unique theme taken from the old trappers and trapper huts in Svalbard. It shows some of the history, whilst serving great food and beverage. This is one of my favorite places to go to, and they serve both simple dishes and more advanced specialities. Whatever you are in for, I think Kroa... More

The food was terrible ( for me). The pizza was too thick - like eating bread with cheese and th fish had the taste of the defrostation, which it was! But the service was lovely and the waitress didn't let me pay for the fish which I returned and gave me a free half a pizza ( which was really... More

I don't have enough nice words to say about Kroa. The food and service was outstanding but the entire experience was just fabulous. I'm sure my excitement of being in Svalbard intensified these feelings, but Kroa was amazing by any standards. The restaurant was very busy and we were lucky to get a table so I recommend making reservations. The... More

We ate twice at this restaurant. Both grown ups and kids enjoyed the food. The meat was veeeeery tender and I could have eaten with a spoon rather than with knife and fork. The combination with the vegetables made the dinner great! The service was also outstanding and we did not wait for long time before the food arrived at... More

Dinner at Kroa. Ambiance is very nice, tables, chairs, stools all in thick and "old" wood. Probably taken from mining huts and lodges. At dinner time is quite busy, better book a table. We had deep fried clipfish noisettes, grilled clipfish, catch of the day (black cod), glass of white wine, brewdog punk beer (indian pale ale), chocolat fondant. Food... More

The best "klippfisk" I have ever had! Informal mood, hearty servings, great atmosphere with authentic decor from the hunter/trapper history of Svalbard, loved it!
