Kroa was a very welcome sight after being dropped in the town after sledding. Warm traditional style interior, very welcoming and friendly staff. Food and drink came quickly and was very good standard: generous pizza, ciabatta and spicy broth.

Kroa was directly accessible through our hotel reception so we called straight in one night (in our socks!) in the dead of winter. I had a moose burger and my son had something equally relaxed. It was fairly quiet so we didn’t have to prebook...More

Great food great staff but sadly as everywhere in Norway and even more in Svalbard the price of dishes on the archipelago is expensive but to be fare it's the same on the other restaurants but I would still recommend the place

We had whale meat, hamburger plus chocolate, ice and coffee. A nice and rustik place, friendly and good service. This was our second time her, visited the place for 13 years ago. It was the same good back then. Can be recommended👍🏻😊
