I was at Kroa a couple of times during a 6-months stay up on Svalbard. It's a cosy place to have dinner, especially after some taking trips in the cold vastness up there. The food is mainly standard western (e.g burger, steak etc.) - there is one rather scandinavian specialty: a moose burger. If you like some new tastes on... More

We both had the burgers - they were tasty but nothing all that special. The local beer here is served in cans. If you want it on tap go to the Svalbar.

This restaurant came highly recommended so we made a reservation and went there for dinner the first night we were in Longyearbyen. It was a very popular restaurant in town, not just for us tourists, but also for the locals. Our food tasted good, the service was friendly and efficient. All was good!

It was a real reward after trekking to have tasty meal here. The place is really nice with local decor and very good food. Probably it's full whole season. Worth visiting.

Kroa/Steakers is a very good restaurant in central Longyearbyen. Friendly and efficient staff. Three starters and about seven main courses of which two vary from day to day. In addition hamburgers. And the best pizzas I have tasted up to now. Honestly. About seven variants.

This is in our opinion one of the best places in Longyearbyen to eat . The staff is as friendly as they can be unless a guess wants to make demands not possible to meet. In a small community in the Arctic circle everyone is busy and this Restaurant strongly recommends reservations. They have great food ,friendly service and a... More
