I'll start with the fact that I would eat here again because the food is great! We had reindeer and whale as an appetizer followed by a burger and halibut main courses. The fish was out of this world, so was the burger. Skip the whale and get another reindeer appetizer. Chase it down with beer as you'll find wine... More

interesting blue building with a veranda and a bay window, rough benches outside, stumps covered with skins to sit on inside, the dining room is divided into parts with pulled seal pups skins (disgusting as for me). Ordinary swalbardian menu : I could not appreciate the so called Grillet (a steam salted code), but steaks were good.

A lovely little culinary experience. As the Chinese travelling with me said: "A little civilization in the far north". The interior provides an amazing atmosphere, like an old trapper's lodge, lost in time. In a way it gave the impression I would expect from a wild west salon, including a respectable bar. Dropping by in the day should be fine,... More

Good honest Arctic food. Do not expect a gourmet meal, but do count on excellent service, rustic atmosphere and WiFi. Do not miss this one.

The food was good, the atmosphere was good, and the servers were friendly. Had pizza twice (it was excellent) and the "catch of the day" once, and was quite satisfied.

This is a delightful place frequented by locals and visitors alike. Food in Longyearbyn is expensive but this was very good value for the price. Four of us shared one large pizza that was delicious. We enjoyed it so much, we went back for dinner... do make reservations, though because lots of people have the same idea and you won't... More

It was nice food, not to expensive. Cosy atmosphere, where both lokals and tourists gathered. You better reserve a table, because it is very popular :)

We stayed at Base Camp Trappers hotel 12-13 July (which itself was very good with a great atmosphere) and Krao is the attached restaurant - very "rustic" made out of drift wood and stone. We had lunch and dinner at Kroa - which serves very tasty food in hearty portions catering to most palates and the special Norwegian beers on... More
