The menu basically had 3 main courses but they all seemed very tasty. The wine was good and the service was also very helpful. The atmosphere was super unique and seemed to be a bit like a greenhouse!

Located a bit from the “city center”, but only 5 min walk, so easy to go there.
Nice and cosy place. The food was nice, and price level very fair, can recommend you to go there during your visit in Longyearbyen.

My last meal on Svalbard until my next visit. I had the whale stew. Guess I expected a pure nordic/arctic classic stew.

It tasted fine enough; however my tastenuds became slighly confused over the Thai elements to the dish.

The meat should (in my opnion) carry the taste in this dish; however the meat, carrots and cauliflower was challenged by pineable and Thai spices.

It tasted ok, but it didn’t stand out. My rating would be more positive if the prive had been significant lower. Compared to other meals in the same prive segment that I habe enjoyed in Longyearbyen, this doesn’t meet the standard (considering the price).

Visit the restaurant for the atmosphere, and proberply also for some of the more authentic nordic/arctic servings ...or Asian servings.

It is a good restaurant where yuo can eat some traditional dishes from the North pole, as the whale. They serve also the local beer, prodeced from the brewery in Longyearbyen.
The price for a dinner is alligned with the other places, but the restaurant is nice, and specially during the midnight sun, you can enjoy the sunshine in a warm place.

A really beautiful restaurant. We ate there twice, I had the seal on the first time, never eaten it before, but it was lovely. I ate reindeer on the second which was equally good. Very helpful staff, who were able to provide both meals gluten free. It isn't cheap, but that's Longyearbyen for you! Good idea to book as it gets full.
