I will not try to write a review like I'm working for the Michelin guide, I dont have the right skills to do that.
But I can tell you its a lovely experience and the wine cellar are one of the richest in whole Norway - who could believe that! The wine cellar is worth around 20 million norwegian kroner. After you have been out skiing, driving the scooter or maybe tried to manage a dog sledge for the first time in your life - this is a good place to end the night. Excellent food and a special history. In a stongly divided community Huset was for both the managers and the workers.
Huset has been home for a wide diverity of services: cafe, jewelery, kiosk, shop for clothes, hunsting and fishing gear (where the wardrobe is now), bridgeroom (now restaurant), the local choirs rehersal room (now wine cellar) school (first floor), home of the priest, cinema and post office.
Enjoy!

May 17 dinner 2013, we had the Arctic 6 course dinner with wine. Interesting combinations and presented in an attractive way. Not quite guide Michelin quality. What was lackin was attention to temperature in the palette that was served on the plate. If you decide to eat here, great choice. Ask to see the wine cellar, this is the place to spend your last hours if there ever will be a global thermo nuclear war...

Great restaurant with fantastic food and exceptional service. It can be a long and chilly walk from Longyearben's town centre. Advisable to use a cab.

We were advised to walk there from the town with the words: "don't overshoot because a polar bear might get you but you're just about safe to Huset". We walked up there in minus 15 and it took 20 minutes which made it extra special to be greeted by name as well as a blast of warm air. We had the Arctic menu which was a series of smallish but excellent dishes including reindeer steak, reindeer sausage and halibut. The wines were well chosen. All was beautifully served too. Must go if you happen to be here but take the larger of your wallets.
