Very good authentic Greenlandic food! You also have a great ocean view and the owner of the hotel keeps his sledge dogs nearby so you can see them from the window. I was not sure what to expect from my musk ox entree but it was very delicious!

This was by far the best dinner I had in Greenland. The service was very good, and the food was interesting and top quality. A limited menu felt quite repetitive, but overall, the place to go.

Had the reindeer dish on my first night in Ilulissat. Restaurant is in hotel Arctic. Acknowledged as the best place to sample Greenlandic cuisine. Musk ox and halibut and cod also available on menu and I had those too on subsequent days. Menu and photos of dishes are attached.

Lunch buffet mostly offers sea food which is fresh and delicious as well as dry and smoked meats. Dinner presentation was first class. Wait staff friendly, helpful and always with a... More

We had the musk oxen and it was tender, juicy and delicious. The dished are plated up in true gourmet fashion. Unusually, dessert is not served even in a "welcome dinner"! Guess the Greenlanders do not have much of a sweet tooth.

There aren’t many quality restaurants in Ilulissat and inevitably you eat in the hotel restaurants. Ulo serves high quality food and the staff were all very friendly and professional. They will try to cater for any special dietary requirements. Advanced booking is adviced.

Highly motivated staff (they have a book to show you pictures of what you've just eaten) and excellent food. All is locally sourced as far as possible, the portions are really good and of a really high quality. They have small menue which changes frequently. Book a table at the very end of the restaurant and you have the best... More

Monday night is Greenlandic buffet, Saturday night is BBQ buffet, both running at approx. 375 DKK. A la carte is, too, an uppermost joy for your tastebuds. Remember to book table ahead of time. Alwas full. View over the icefiord and the iceberg-giants of the Discobay.

You will love Restaurant Ulo. Our gourmet cuisine is recognized as one of the very best in the whole country. The chefs are masters in their fields and use only the very finest Greenlandic and international raw materials. At the same time the experience is spiced by a bewitching view from the restaurant - of the Ilulissat harbour and life on the waters of Disko Bay among the gigantic icebergs.
