You can chose from different menues with the bottom floor serving more simple dishes and the first floor more sophisticated ones. We liked the cod dish at the bottom floor.

5 min taxi ride from Longyerbean. Booked in the bistro but when we arrived changed to the restaurant as the menu was more appealing. The menu is really lovely and interesting. You can opt for lesser courses and I would recommend the pairing of wines..they were lovely. The food service is very creative and to a high standard, as is the service. Worth a visit for a great foodie experience.

This was my second visit to Longyearbyen, and I was very eager to revisit the bistro. The food was lovely, and they are very helpful in adapting to gluten free. It is popular, so I would recommend booking.

Huset is a must see when visiting Longyearbyen - an old historic place, where workers from different classes in the coal miners society met and socialised. A very beautiful and historically (retro) intact meeting hall and bar on 2. floor, with lots of Danish design furniture. Bistro OK - only had a lunch meal. But it is known to have the best wine cellar in the arctic/northern Europe.

Came here after a long, exhausting day of a snowmobiling. It was about 220 kr for the dinner tasting menu plus wine pairings. Most I've ever spent on a meal for myself but damn was it worth it. The menu ends up being 10+ little servings when you take into account the extqs they give you. The food was INCREDIBLE, and I say this as a 35 year old Los Angelino who has had a lot of great food in her time. The wine was... plentiful, i.e., I am drunk and happy. If you are wondering whether to go, just go.
