This is a really cosy restaurant with a great atmosphere and friendly staff. I ate there 2 nights out of my 7 in Svalbard and particularly enjoyed the smoked whale starter

We had the good fortune of eating here a few times during our trip . The atmosphere matches the food, which is excellent. The service is excellent yet unobtrusive. I think it's very reasonably priced, though other reviews may differ. Compared to major cities in Europe, it's truly a bargain. The wine list is scant, but all are excellent choices.... More

Very cosy and warm restaurant with great pizza. We loved the place. If you have a group of 8 or 10 there is a circular table in the window overlooking the "street" which would be fantastic.

The signboards were not visible in the polar nights and we had to make some effort and asking for directions before we found its entrance. We arrived at 8 plus on a Saturday evening, which is hugely popular for Longyearbyens to eat out. A waitress was pleasant to... More

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.
