Roklubben also known as the Row club is a true dining experience. Most people that come to Kangerlussuaq are here for science or adventure or both but this restaurant is a little slice of heaven. The menu features all Greenlandic cuisine prepared both in quality and presentation of a 5 star restaurant. The secluded location over looking the lake is picturesque and the fact you have to take a shuttle there with all the guests for the night makes it feel like an experience. The restaurant seats maybe 50 people and is pretty much reservation only. They really only do one dinner service. The menu consists of starters, entrees, desserts, and drinks. Starters range in price from 18-25 USD and are sizable. My group had the shrimp cocktail and the smoked halibut. The shrimp cocktail was standard but the portion was large and the shrimp were fresh wild caught Greenlandic. The smoked halibut was a treat. I have always been a big halibut fan but this was amazing. The halibut was sliced thin and smoked served with some vegetables. For the main course I had the wild plate which includes a medallion of both reindeer and musk ox. Neither of which I had before. The reindeer was probably some of the best meat I have ever had. It tastes sort of like lamb but better. The musk ox is very gamey, lean and has a dense texture that reminds me vaguely of duck. It was served with oven roasted potatoes but I was too full to eat them. Every dish has its own sauce and the sauces were perfect compliments to the dish. The owner also makes a fruit beer, local Greenlandic beer infused with crowberries which are small black tart berries. The beer was excellent and I had two pints ignoring the nearly $24 USD price. They also flavor their own snapps. The service is slow and not always the most friendly but the food and the views can not be best. If for any reason you are in Kangerlussuaq you should make a reservation.
