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.

We were staying at the Arctic Hotel and so we ate all breakfasts there and dinner one night. The food is good. Breakfast is a complete buffet and the only problem is it is easy to over eat. Our dinner night was a buffet but there were conventional foods mixed with Greenlandic selections and we had a very enjoyable dinner.

This is probably one of the restaurants with one of the worlds best views. We were sitting in their panorama restaurant with a great view of the icefjord, while the chefs were preparing their famous greenlandic barbecue, which they have every summer. While we waited we had a beer from a greenlandic brewery in Nuuk, called 'Godthåb Bryggeri'. The different... More

This restaurant is located in the four-star Hotel Arctic. The menu was very interesting and based mostly on produce from Greenland. We had lumpsucker roe, halibut, musk ox, all prepared in innovative ways.

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.
