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...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)....More

We decided to give Huset a chance, despite reading the negative reviews here on TripAdvisor. The reviewes were not wrong. We were seated in the Bistro-area and ordered a three-course menu for 445NOK per person. We had artichoke soup as a starter, entrecôte and burger...More

A unique restaurant in a historic building. The menu in the Bistro was reflecting its arctic location with local food such as reindeer meat, wild goose and whale. The wine list was very exclusive too. We noticed the quick service and competent staff.

This was my last day and I had a bust to catch in the light at 02:30 AM so I decided on an early dinner at Huset's Bistro. The walk is interesting as you need to go beyond the tourist area...but not outside the Polar...More
