We spent our last evening in this restaurant and this was the cherry on the cake of our trip to Spitzbergen. The atmosphere is unique, the service great and the menue extraordinary. Highly recommendable. Worth the high price.

An unbelievable culinary experience in Svalbard’s winter wonderland. The set menu was incredible and was accompanied by a wonderful setting and fantastic service. Would recommend to anyone who fancies an Arctic menu.
