“Service was great - best at Svalbard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

It has been several years since my last visit and we chose it because of the reputation and the wine cellar. Great service and nice surroundings. Nearly empty restaurant on a tuesday. Food was well composed even I felt disappointing they could not offer a la carte menu. We had to chose between 4 and 7 dishes fixed menu. Delicious food combinations with our 4 dishes we found quite nice.The wine list was enormously and I had to ask for a recommendation. Chateauneuf de Pape matched the food.

“Bistro - Don't bother ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Definitely not worth the 30min walk each way from the centre of town. Friendly service but the food at the bistro was only average.

Had our new years eve dinner at Huset.
Everything here is perfect, service, food, wine..
You should order a set meal with wine menu, the wine cellar is one of the best!

“Fantastic food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

We had a four course dinner at Huset, and after that we have recommended it to everyone we know that are going to Svalbard! The food was excellent - both presentation and taste, and the waiter was polite and informative while presenting the food and wine. This is absolutely the best place to go for a great foodexperience in Longyearbyen!

“Good first impression ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Went to the cafe side (in through the door and turn left). Heard lots of good things about the food but I only went in for a coffee.The decor was ok but the venue a little lacking in atmosphere so didn't stay long. It may of been because it was early evening and everyone arriving was wearing a suit whilst I was still dressed for the great outdoors. The road between the church and Huset is quiet so can be a little eerie in the dark. If you walk the road on the other side of the river and cross the bridge at Huset it's fine. It's close to Guesthouse 102 which is handy for persons staying there.
