Ate here and had a great meal. Certainly better than the hamburger joint somewhat closer to the port.

I ordered a medium pizza because they said that was appropriate for one person. What I received was a half pizza, which was much smaller than what I am used to as a medium pizza. I had to order one more to get enough. Even it was small, the taste was good.

Kroa Pub is right next door to Basecamp / Trapper’s Hotel with an entrance from Basecamp lobby. The pub is furnished on the same theme of a trappers lodge as Basecamp. They have a variety of selections from pizzas, burgers and local fare such as minke whale, moose and reindeer; they even had a vegan dish of lentils. It’s a... More

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.
