Absolutely fantastic place. The food and service could not be faulted. If this restaurant hasn't got a Michelin Star, it should have!!!

I say "not that great", because I had expected a bit more out of a visit to the reputable "Huset" in Longyearbyen. I guess the restaurant is where the magic is presented and not the bistro, which is strange since it is the same kitchen. I'm not that much into set menus with small samples of different kind of ornamentation... More

Aggressive guards. Took our drinks away without notice. They said they were closing the alcohol sale- but sold drinks without notifying 5 minutes before. A bad experience to "loose" $120...

A "must try"! Amazing Nordic food and a very well-tasting wine menu. The people is very nice, as the food is!

Huset at Svalbard is a must. The food was fantastic. The winecellar at Huset is one of the best in Europ. The surrondings are very special. Everyone must have a go at Huset, under the northern light.

We had dinner at Huset on New Year’s Eve 2016! We arrived there at about 7 pm and I started up by tagging along a group that got a tour of the wine cellar. Keep in mind that this restaurant is located in Longyearbyen on Svalbard which is on the edge of the habitable world. There were several rooms of... More

We came with high expectations and we were not dissapointed. The menu is set, you only choose between 5 or 7 courses. We went for 5. The food was really good, although the portions could have been bigger. The waiter, Mathias, was so knowledgeable about the food, the wine and even the polar bear rug on the wall, I was... More

We enjoyed the 5 course with selected wines. After seeing a review on TV and reading reviews we were not disappointed. The service was impeccable and the food unique and brought together well. Highly recommend

We enjoyed a litle drink, and then main course and dessert. Meat (lamb) was very good, I'd say perfect. The rest was like any other restaurant. It was not very cosy for a couple, but great for a group. Lack of atmosphere.
