Longyearbyen has only about 2000 residents, on an island hundreds of miles north of the rest of Norway, where it enjoys permanent darkness for almost 4 months of the year. Despite this, it is home to this exceptional restaurant. As we visited for my birthday, we had the full experience - a wine tasting, followed by a tasting menu with... More

I had dinner here with my mother and brother on our last night in Longyearbyen. The bistro has a fairly small but great menu - I recommend the reindeer stew. Our waiter (sorry, I have forgotten his name) was fabulous. It was his first night working there but really knew his stuff - he took great delight in bringing us... More

Absolutely fantastic place. The food and service could not be faulted. If this restaurant hasn't got a Michelin Star, it should have!!!

I say "not that great", because I had expected a bit more out of a visit to the reputable "Huset" in Longyearbyen. I guess the restaurant is where the magic is presented and not the bistro, which is strange since it is the same kitchen. I'm not that much into set menus with small samples of different kind of ornamentation... More

Aggressive guards. Took our drinks away without notice. They said they were closing the alcohol sale- but sold drinks without notifying 5 minutes before. A bad experience to "loose" $120...

Huset at Svalbard is a must. The food was fantastic. The winecellar at Huset is one of the best in Europ. The surrondings are very special. Everyone must have a go at Huset, under the northern light.

We had dinner at Huset on New Year’s Eve 2016! We arrived there at about 7 pm and I started up by tagging along a group that got a tour of the wine cellar. Keep in mind that this restaurant is located in Longyearbyen on Svalbard which is on the edge of the habitable world. There were several rooms of... More

We came with high expectations and we were not dissapointed. The menu is set, you only choose between 5 or 7 courses. We went for 5. The food was really good, although the portions could have been bigger. The waiter, Mathias, was so knowledgeable about the food, the wine and even the polar bear rug on the wall, I was... More
