A must visit when in Longyearbyen!
Amazing food, wine, service and experience.
We had a fine dinner in the fancy area to celebrate our wedding together and loved it so much we went back a few times to eat in the bar area.
All meals were excellent every time!

“The night club in Longyearbyen”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Beside of beeing the restaurant with the finest dining in Longyearbyen, Huset also function as the night club in the town. When all the other nightlife venues close at 2AM, everybody move to Huset as they are open until 3AM (weekends). Don't worry that the place is a little bit outside the town center as taxis are shuttling between the town centre and Huset, and in most cases you will share car - and the bill with several other. The party factor is high and the place brings together a wonderful mix of tourists and locals. Be aware that there may be an cover charge (100 NOK at our visit).

“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.
