Very good for the food and decor, poor service

My wife and I were in Longyearbyen for three nights, staying at the Trappers which is right next to the Kroa Restaurant (there is a connecting door between the Trappers and the Kroa). We asked the receptionist at the Trappers for the best place to eat and she said look no further than next door. So next door we went... More

The Kroa is one of the best restaurants in Longyearbyen and worth a visit. They serve a rather wide range of foods. Nice settings reflecting the old mining style. The place is rather busy so you may want to make a reservation in advance, in particular if you are a group.

We ordered table at "Kroa" before we arrived to Longyearbyen, because some of the people in our group had good experiences from this place. 3 of 4 evenings we ate dinner at this place. Everyone was very pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. Soup, fish, wale and beef…..all courses tasted delishious and you realy got satisfied.

We were a big group that tried a quite varied menu at Kroa. Service and food was good. We enjoyed sampling some "local" food and I think the winelist was quite alright. Atmosphere is lively and the setting is "rustic". The restaurant stays open late and it feels like many visitors end up here for a meal or a drink.... More

We got this recommended by a local - and we were not disappointed. We were told we had to book in advance, and so we luckily did. It was crowded and lively, but the service was quick and welcoming. The selection is limited, but they have some great choices. I had the wale beef - absolutely great. This is a... More

Busy and atmospheric pub style restaurant - with great food and service. Definitely a dinner to remember and super convenient as we were staying in Basecamp hotel - so no need for warm coat or winter boots.

For dinner, I ordered the special of the day and was not disappointed. Portions are generous here, and the food reflects that these are quality ingredients in capable hands. Love the rustic atmosphere.

Excellent food but especially nice atmosphere with 'native' decoration. Friendly staff. You need to make a reservation because always crowded in the evening.
