You will love Restaurant Ulo. Our gourmet cuisine is recognized as one of the very best in the whole country. The chefs are masters in their fields and use only the very finest Greenlandic and international raw materials. At the same time the experience is spiced by a bewitching view from the restaurant - of the Ilulissat harbour and life on the waters of Disko Bay among the gigantic icebergs.

Yes the view is fantastic , but the food, the service and the food hall mentality leaves a lot to be desired. The cafe upstairs leaves this so called a la carte for dead. Booked for the first night, we were not told until we arrived for our booking, that it was a set menu (Sunday night), in Greenland a... More

The Greenlandic buffet is unique - whale, musk ox, seal, an amazing array of local delicacies. But the best part is the view. You can not take your eyes of the constantly changing panorama of gigantic icebergs floating around Disko Bay.

As part of my Tour visit to Ilulissat I was given a meal here as a welcome. The food was great and very tasty - the poached Musk Ox was simply awesome. Honestly the price was too much for me to justify eating at other times during my visit.

a number of people complained about service: you are in Greenland miles above the circle, not NYC or London: relax, enjoy.

We staied at the Arctic hotel for 6 days and had 2 dinners at the Ulo Restaurant which belongs to this hotel: the welcome menu and the Greenlandic Buffet - and the breakfasts. The food quality of the dinners is very good, and it's worth to try the Greenlandic Buffet (usually on Mondays) as it offers many local specialities, some... More

We were looking forward to trying this restaurant which has such great write ups, but had been warned by locals that it was overly pretentious and too expensive. We absolutely agree. We had just had three dinners at the Icefiord Hotel where we loved everything served. What we found here seems similar to other restaurants trying to be different. Some... More

From the restaurant you will enjoy a view over the village of Ilulissat and the Disko Bay. Whether for lunch or dinner, the menus are delicate and sophisticated. The focus is set on local products, fish and shellfishes. The staff is extremely well-mannered. Prices are set accordingly to the high standards, e.g. around 375 DKK for an appetizer + main... More

If you wish to experience what Greenland has to offer in terms of ingredients, then this has to be the best option in northern Greenland if not the whole country. Menus are fixed except for buffet night. The waiters will explain each dish so you know when you are about to embark on seal souffle or wade into a wedge... More
