We, a party of 8 men past due date, set out to eat at Huset. We had the tasting menu with the wine package. A unique taste experience with the most service mindet staff ever. Those giving Huset (meaning The House) a bad review could...not possible have visited this place. They might have been visiting _A_ house..... somewhere... The food and wine experience at huset, should be too priority when visiting Longyearbyen.More

A nice location - but a too simple food and drinks. We enjoyed New Years Eve at Norways #11th best restaurant, but both food and wine were a disappointment - as well as table location and a staff eager to close and get home. Food...- a 5 course set meal - was oversimplied and made for mass production to 25-30 persons. No more local fish or meat, so we got a lamb from Uruguay in the artic. Not convinsing. Wine package? A random selection of cheap wines that the sommelier could not defence. So she recommended some «emergency» champagne as replacement, but the same sommelier did not know grapes, sugar content or background of a rather basic champagne. All in all an OK minus meal in a nice location, but with a restarant too eager to earn money without deliver 100% quality.More

I was at the Huset in my first evening in Svalbard. I tried the 6 course nordic experience meny with wine pairing. The food was very good and interesting also the environment and the service was beautiful. If you are looking for a special occasion...with a fancy touch in Svalbard I think Huset is the right place.More

My bf booked a table for a romantic dinner. Service was masterly, great wine selection. We enjoyed a 7 course dinner here. Food is very local, which is nice. But size of portions wasnt enought for both of us + dinner took more then 2...hours (too long for me). After a nice walk to a city and one more dinner we was full ^^More

My husband and I had booked a table for our 10th anniversary on Nov 5th and we had a wonderful evening at Huset! The waitress was excellent and most of the dishes included in the Nordic Tasting Menu were very nice indeed as were the...wines paired to go with them. Because it was a special occasion, we received a glass of bubbles to start with - on the house. A lovely gesture! Then we had a really tasty spoonful of cauliflower soup with freshly baked bread and butter. And then the 7 courses started with undercooked hallibut (instead of crayfish which was listed on the menu) topped with a lot of roe and then undercooked seal... Both dishes we were not keen on. However, after that things improved significantly: with ptarmigan, cod and reindeer. Delicious! An enjoyable treat altogether! Recommended!More

We went here for a 3 course dinner, and had a wonderful evening. Service was just superb, and food was really good. The place is small and cosy and located a short walk from Longyearbyen center, which actually only added to the experience. I would...definitively come here again.More

Great menu, atmosphere felt slightly uncomfortable but food was really fantastic. Meal was well put together and the wine really complimented it! We had a really lovely visit and couldn’t recommend the food more!

We enjoyed a wonderful 7 course dinner here. The wine list made us drool!! The service was fantastic and we even were given a tour of the wine cellar. This should not be missed if you come to Svalbard.

A must visit when visiting Svalbard. The local food is fantastic and the service is very friendly and helpful. A wine cellar of another world is topping the visit at Huset.

We walked to the restaurant from the church, it was a half hour walk in the cold darkness, looking at the beautiful mountains, quirky buildings, and always looking over our shoulders for potential polar bears. When we arrived, we already had a good time. The...building itself is quite ominous and decorated 50s style. It is a building with an old history and delicious food. We went to the bistro, got ridiculously smooth soup, reindeer burger and reindeer sausages. It all came quickly and the people there were friendly and professional. 100% recommendMore

We dined at Huset on a Friday evening in the beginning of November, and were the only guests the whole evening. Nobody was around to greet us when we arrived, we were standing around awkwardly for couple of minutes before we got seated at our...table. I do understand, that it's not very uplifting serving only one table for the whole evening, and it was just another low season evening for the staff, but we traveled from far to experience a unique dinner, and celebrate with my family. We didn't receive any stories or introduction on the dishes. The pork terrine arrived luke warm. Many of the dishes lacked the arctic or nordic touch f.x. the cauliflower soup or the desserts. Based on this dinner they are not comparable with Grön or Matbaren as the White Guide suggests.More

We tried the Saturday beef with vegetables and gratinated potatoes and French fries. It was good. This is the casual restaurant at Huset. I have previously tried the 3-7 course restaurant next door which was at a different level/better (but also the price was higher)....Anyhow, the food was good and some of the staff very friendly and serviceminded. HOWEVER, what I cannot understand is that they have put up two PIRATECOPIES of the world famous PH Artichoke in the restaurant. It is not legal to put up such illegal and non approved lamps in a public space. The original lamps have 70 years protection against copies. Huset has still an original PH Artichoke in the second floor which still looks great after all these years, but the two in the restaurant below is 100% fake and really does not look good. Put them down and recycle them right away. The place looks cheap with such copies. I brought this to the attention of one Swedish man working there. He pretended to agree and said he would mention it to his boss! I expect something more genuine next time (if) I return☹️More

I was concerned about going to a gourmet restaurant in Loingyearbyen, but I shouldn't have been. I chose to do the seven course tasting menu, and each course was better than the last one. The gentleman who led me through the tasting was a wonderful...guide to the cuisine and also told me some great stories about life in Longyearbyen. My table was at a window looking out at the amazing Arctic scenery, which just enhanced the great taste of the food, the wonderful presentation and the good wine pairings. This was easily one of the three best meals I have had in my life. the whole experience was totally worth the cost. Treat yourself, and go to Huset!More
