We enjoyed a delicious dinner here. We both chose the fish entree and had a scallop appetizer and a shrimp one too. The portions are small and the prices are high. But, hey, you're in Longyearbyen!!

The food is good at this restaurant, but the service is very poor. After 90 minutes we had only gotten our starter, and only a glass of wine. This was not due to ill will just that the waiter was not trained. Poor guy. The...More

The food was absolutely exceptional. The best meal we have had. We picked the 7 courses and each one was a taste sensation and cooked to perfection with such skill and elegance. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
