Simple & cosy

Nice & warm place for a beer and a soup, or a pizza. We didn't taste any of the meat dishes, but we went 2 times and it was fine. The service is a little slow, but it is mostly the rhythm here in Longyearbyen so all is just normal! Overall a nice place.

Stopped by Kroa to eat dinner and drink some beer. Sat down at the bar, and the staff was there quickly to help you and bring you menus. We ordered some beer and two pulled pork to eat with the beers. Paid 160kr for a pulled pork, and that's well worth the money ! It is a lot of pork,... More

Longyearbyen has only one main high street, there are very limited shops and restaurants available. There is only one supermarket. Kroa is within the Basecamp which offers adventure trips such as dog sledding and snowmobiling. Eating out in Longyearbyen, ideally you need to book a table. The restaurant seems to be always full. The quality of food and standard are... More

Centre of town. Very warm inside. Decor is cosy but spacious, wooden tables etc. You can go just for a drink - there is some space at the bar with high stools, but it's mainly geared towards being a restaurant. The staff were excellent. The menu appeared to be more limited than we expected, but once we got the hang... More

As we stayed in basecamp hotel, just the side of the restaurant, you just need to waln in through the connecting door. The service is good, the food is good, and the wifi is strong

This was the first place to eat we tried and we had to go back I enjoyed it so much. Im a really fussy eater and managed to find things I really enjoyed. The prices are really good for Longyearbyen. The place is beautifully decorated and fits in with your surroundings. I would definately go back when we return in... More

good food, good location and great place to go after a stunning day in Svalbard area. They have food for everyone, at a decent price in a warm and cozy restaurant with rough wood and cool items around.

Kroa made some amazing dinners! Taco-dinner and a lot of fish dinners. The fish-meals was definitely my favorite.
