“good food and professional”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

The food at Kroa is really good and at our first visit we got a nice table and good service. The staff was professional and gave us a good welcome, but when returning another day and once more asking for a table, they just stated that no table was free, even though there were very few visitors at the moment. A smile and sorry we can not help this time would have been nice.

“Huge portions, hearty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Easily the best restaurant in Longyearbyen. Excellent value for money. Food service a little slow but acceptable for small town standards. Pizza and slow cook of the day consistently good and they have Mack beer on tap (northernmost brewery in the world).

“All but soups is delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We ate once a late lunch and once a dinner. Both soups we ordered were tasty only on a surface, as below was an oversalted bacon - even if I was hungry, I couldn't manage to eat such amount of salt.
All other dishes we ate were delicious - both a dish of the day and a catch of the day (we got seal - it was surprisingly good).
Orange juice was quite artificial in taste - but I used to drink orange juice without a sugar and not from concentrate so it might be the reason why I didn't like it. Cranberry juice and lemonade were good though.

Very nice and cosy interior.
