Excellent ambience and value - but make a booking first!

We visited Kroa on our second night in Longyearbyen and were happy with the ambience and menu. Excellent value for money and large portions. Best piece of advice would be to call ahead and make a booking, we attended during the week around 8pm and were told we were lucky to get a table. The staff... read 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!

Pre-booked a table and menu for 7 people. Waited for service about 30 minutes after we arrived. Food was good, service wasn't the most friendly and a bit slow.

We just about got a table here and both had absolutely delicious meals. An earlier review said they were large portions. I would disagree and say they could be a little bigger but the quality was superb and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The restaurant also looks lovely and is full of character and the champagne was reasonably priced. A... More

Had a very nice meal here during a stay in Longyearbyen last September. Reasonable price and quick service. Nothing to complain about. Would recommend.

Loved the catch of the day. Good food for a resonnable price. Staff are friendly and the trapper-style is amazing. This place holds alot of history.

Not always the best food. Service sometimes grumpy. But this is a place that no matter how many tourists will visit, it will never loose it's coarse charm. Seal skins, raw wood, reindeer fur don't look fake but exactly in their place. Pizza types you will not experience any place else. Smoked seal, whale and other odds for tourists. Good... More

Had great food there, I ordered a trout and the side mash patatoes with roasted garlic and the vegetables were absolutely delicious, my friend had a vegetarian pizza that was great as well. The decor is nice, it feels comfortable and warm. The downside was the staff, they all looked bored and not interested in their jobs, it took us... More
