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!

Seal, reindeer, crab and more extremely delicious dishes. Wine menu perfectly matched to the food and a quick tour in the wine cellar. Service so great. What’s not to like.....

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
