Kroa is a nice place, very informal and popular. The pepper steak is excellent, and the service is nice

We are at this restaurant a couple of times. The decor and atmosphere were interesting and the best part. The food was over-seasoned and too salty for our taste.

Just stopped to check the place out as I had heard a lot of good reports about it. Was really busy at 20.00 hrs but luckily we were given a table. Food was OK for pub food, as other reviewers said a little expensive, but I live in Norway, so nothing too dramatic for me. Service was a little slow,... More

Great burgers on our first day and on the days it's warm enough you can sit outside. With a couple of exceptions pub grub is the staple in Longyearbyen and is of decent quality. Just remember a burger costs £15 everywhere so don't get a fright.

Bump into this restaurant by chance and is great that I did. The steak and beer recommended by the staff is good.

This is the place to eat when in Svalbard. You probably want to test other restaurants too but dont bother, you will get the best service, environment and food right here!

The Kroa is quite cozy and the service is okay. The food, however, was less than exciting. One of us had fish which was much too salty, the other one had a rather mediocre hambuger. The pizza is not reccomended to lovers of real Italian pizza, maybe not surprisingly, it's the American type: thick crust, heavy toppings with lots of... More

This was a great experience! We had not booked in advance, the place was almost full, but the very accomodating waitress quickly moved some tables and chairs about and made room for us. (You should probably book in advance.) The level of service did not decline throughout our visit: Efficient and friendly. The whole party fully agreed this was one... More

The sunny terrace was a fun place to have a beer and lunch. We ate dinner here twice - some of the courses (the reindeer starter) were delicious, but I'd say the food was nice, rather than excellent or anything to write home about.

I'll start with the fact that I would eat here again because the food is great! We had reindeer and whale as an appetizer followed by a burger and halibut main courses. The fish was out of this world, so was the burger. Skip the whale and get another reindeer appetizer. Chase it down with beer as you'll find wine... More
