“Amazing food and service!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Booked a table in the restaurant for me and my husband and chose the 6 course menu. Food was incredible, and the service was as good as you'd get in fine dining restaurants anywhere in the world. What makes it special is remembering what you are eating and where you are in the world. Absolutely ammazing experience.
Tip: if you are walking from the centre of Longyearbyen, take the road past the back of the school, it's quicker. Will still take a good 30 minutes though, but works up a good appetite.

“Amazing food experience ”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Arrived and wasn't sure what to expect from the outside but once you're in the experience begins. We had a 5 course taster menu with wine and it was fantastic. All well presented, beautiful flavours with great complimentary wines. Service good too. Very worth a visit you won't be disappointed.

“Excellent dining at the end of the world”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

Huset is Svalbard's fine dining restaurant and does it as well as any big city. The wine list is astonishing and includes features such as the world's biggest collection of Oregon wines outside the US.
We got the six course degustation with matching wines. The wines were largely very well matched, if a little overpriced (though reasonable given the cost of alcohol in longyearbyen). One 'wine' was a French cider but it was the best match of them all, with the pea soup.
Highlight was unquestionably the reindeer sausage, perfectly balanced dish. The pea soup and chocolate dessert were also brilliant.
Fairly expensive but similar to comparable restaurants in cities that are not closer to the North Pole than LA is to San Fran.
The service was also excellent and the menu lasted a remarkable 6.5 hours, until 1.30am.
Highly recommended.

“didn't live to the high expectations”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Expectations were high, we went for the tasting menu, and pretty much everything aside from the reindeer was disappointing. "Form over substance" was the overall comment at our table.

“Gourmet!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

This is Svalbards ultimate gourmet-restaurant.
A bit out of the centre, but if you are a gastronaut you can not miss this place! The winecellar is a story for it self... Order the arctic 6 cours menu, and you will have an experience for life! :)
