Fine dining in Svalbard is truly something else, and Gruvelageret delivered on our last night as a group on Spitsbergen. Perfect for special occasions, and make sure to give plenty of hours to eat and have some time to enjoy the wine inbetween each course....You’ll likely not want to walk to the restaurant during the coldest season, unless you’re feeling extra adventurous, that is. Make sure to order a taxi in good time as it can get pretty busy.More

We were here first time back in 2019 and loved it. We were in shock that it was possible to find Michelin-star-type quality up in the high arctic! We were back in March 2021 and had the same experience. Excellent food, wonderful ambience and lovely...service and the food, flawless with perfect portions exploding with flavour - the chef is a genius! A real winner!! indeed!!More

Everything from the cozy localities to the best food I've tasted in years in one fine place on the top of the Longyear valley. Helpful and friendly staff, great wine, for courses very finely portioned out.

My husband and I visited this restaurant on our honeymoon and it was the best dining experience we had in Longyearbyen. We walked to venue and it seemed that it was just a random, perhaps empty building in an isolated spot but we were greeted...by an amazing and cosy interior. The warm slippers were a lovely touch and we were seated in a quiet corner surrounded by lots of interesting historical objects and photographs. The food and wine pairing were absolutely fantastic, I've had a lot of fancy degustations and this was really one of the best I've experienced. Each course was a star with a perfect pairing of delicious wine, and the quantity was exactly right so we were very satisfied but not completely stuffed at the end. Not included on the menu was Swedish brown bear which came out as a small tasting and was a pleasant surprise! Our waitress was lovely and provided excellent service. The ambience was fantastic and I would definitely come back if we were in Svalbard again.More

No dress code that I noticed. Casual. Most people who visit Svalbard bring good clothes for the wilderness.
