Food in Scandinavia is often expensive but this place is a positive exception: We had a delicious slice of pizza which was surprisingly affordable.

Found Fruene after a chilly boattrip. It was good to fine the heat in a hot gullash soup at Fruene. A warm but a bit crowded place

We enjoyed welcome hot chocolates and sticky buns here on a chilly morning. It was a Sunday and the place was packed, so it was a useful but not very restful place to relax.

Nice and casual atmosphere, helpful staff, only several dishes offered - but very tasty, and at the same time less expensive than any other place in town. They also sell pralines that are locally made.

The food they serve is really good, and they even produce and sell their own chocolate there. Somewhat expensive but also quite special. The place attracts a lot of customers but still possible to get a table without waiting.

Longyearbyen doesn't have a lot of affordable restaurants, but Fruene is both affordable (by Norwegian standards) and tasty. The sandwiches, lasagna and pastries we ate were all very good. Friendly service.

For me I only had one day there and could have done with a lot more but we used it as a port for our cruise around Svalbard. I did dog sledding at Longyearbyen with Green Dog which was very good. There are many other things... More

Everything on Svalbard comes there by transport- airplane or ships. If want to be sure a food item is available, you should bring it. There are lots of great cooks there who like food, but you need to make special plans with... More
