Description: Welcome to Svalbards most relaxed and historical restaurant, for celabraiting a birthday, romantic dinner or for a glass together with the local citizens. Our menu are focused on seasonal ingredients and our chefs and waiters work hard to serve you the best as they can. Our opening hours are 11:30-02:00 every day. You will find us right in the center of town, just a few minutes walk from most hotels in Longyearbyen.

We dined here only once but it was definitely worth it. The menu is not very large but most people won't have a problem finding something they like. After ordering, the food is served fast. For those who want to try whale, the restaurant has an appetizer of smoked whale.

Eat in this restaurant on the recommendation of a traveller on the plane. Did not book and were initially told that it was full. However manager found us a table and we had an excellent 2 course meal. Bearing in mind location price very reasonable and if we are in the area again we would certainly eat agin in the restaurant.

it was the bar/restaurant next to our hotel and it was really a super comfortable place to hang out!
Nice food and service for a good price
We loved the pizza's which were always too much for us and we would take some pieces with us for lunch the next day
And we also loved the slowcooked meals! Amazing flavours!

We booked this one as it was recommended in the reviews on TripAdvisor and we agree, a booking is certainly necessary, at this time of year at least. We certainly weren't disappointed Kroa. The service was amazing, the waitress took very good care of us and the food came out quickly. The food was delicious and generous and the atmosphere warming and rustic, which was just right for the Arctic setting!

This is one of the hot locations in town so you need to book if you want to be assured of a seat. First sitting means that you will need to vacate for the next diners after approx 1.5 hours and the bar is not large so if there are a group of you then book the second sitting (?2130 hrs) and there is a large sitting area available. Great food and good service left us with a positive impression. Busy environment handled professionally but not much time to chat at evening time. Very much worth a visit even though there are a limited number of options in town.
