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 have dined at restaurant Ulo for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast buffet offers many different food choices from delicious yogurts, cheeses, smoked fish to scrambled eggs and bacon. Lunch buffet mostly offers sea food which is fresh and delicious as well as dry and smoked meats. Dinner presentation was first class. Wait staff friendly, helpful and always with a... More

We had the musk oxen and it was tender, juicy and delicious. The dished are plated up in true gourmet fashion. Unusually, dessert is not served even in a "welcome dinner"! Guess the Greenlanders do not have much of a sweet tooth.

There aren’t many quality restaurants in Ilulissat and inevitably you eat in the hotel restaurants. Ulo serves high quality food and the staff were all very friendly and professional. They will try to cater for any special dietary requirements. Advanced booking is adviced.

Highly motivated staff (they have a book to show you pictures of what you've just eaten) and excellent food. All is locally sourced as far as possible, the portions are really good and of a really high quality. They have small menue which changes frequently. Book a table at the very end of the restaurant and you have the best... More

Monday night is Greenlandic buffet, Saturday night is BBQ buffet, both running at approx. 375 DKK. A la carte is, too, an uppermost joy for your tastebuds. Remember to book table ahead of time. Alwas full. View over the icefiord and the iceberg-giants of the Discobay.

Located in hotel Arctic it is quite off the centre (about 15 minutes walk), place have fantastic views on harbour and icebergs floating past. The plate I ordered was Burned halibut with capers and dill sauce, herbs and baby potatoes. I was sold on presentation first as it is prepared in front... More

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.
