Description: You will love Restaurant Ulo. Our gourmet cuisine is recognized as one of the very best in the whole country. The chefs are masters in their fields and use only the very finest Greenlandic and international raw materials. At the same time the experience is spiced by a bewitching view from the restaurant - of the Ilulissat harbour and life on the waters of Disko Bay among the gigantic icebergs.

From the restaurant you will enjoy a view over the village of Ilulissat and the Disko Bay. Whether for lunch or dinner, the menus are delicate and sophisticated. The focus is set on local products, fish and shellfishes. The staff is extremely well-mannered. Prices are set accordingly to the high standards, e.g. around 375 DKK for an appetizer + main course.

If you wish to experience what Greenland has to offer in terms of ingredients, then this has to be the best option in northern Greenland if not the whole country.
Menus are fixed except for buffet night. The waiters will explain each dish so you know when you are about to embark on seal souffle or wade into a wedge of whale. The chefs are a mix of Danes and Greenlanders who have clearly used a little imagination to fuse modern tastes and some traditional ingredients - whale, seal, musk ox (my personal fave!), reindeer, prawns and the ubiquitous halibut - try it dried, cooked with cheese or sashimi style. Lamb is also on the menu for the less adventurous. I didn't see anyone complain at the choice on buffet night.
Even if you are not staying at Hotel Arctic the restaurant is worth a visit as a special trip - Monday is buffet night if you are on a budget and wish to fill up...
The hotel provides guests with a welcome dinner and a farewell dinner as part of their package.
There is also a bar if you wish to hang around and enjoy the view with a drink and chat with the latest film crews in town.

The food was excellent and the presentation was artistic. The Greenlandic buffet on Monday night was terrific, all the foods of the Arctic. The sashimi halibut was excellent - go and enjoy.

We went to have dinner at the Ulo restaurant located in the Arctic Hotel one evening.
They usually have a 3 or 5 course menu of the day. There is a good selection of fish or seafood fresh from the Disco Bay or Greenlandic meat like lamb, musk or reindeer.

The special "Greenlandic Coffee" is also sold in the restaurant and can be recommended as a desert or on the side of the desert.

If you are looking for a culinary restaurant experience, I would go to the Ulo Restaurant. From the restaurant, you have a direct view of the Disco Bay, so you can see Icebergs while enjoying your dinner.

The portion are smaller then in a normal family restaurant serve but the content of each dish is superb and still filling. Take yourself time to enjoy each meal and leave also a compliment to the chef if you liked what was served.
