Kroa as everything you need and more for a great drink or meal. The drinks were excellent and the choice of dishes was great. We had dinner and lunch here and very happy both times.

Here it is nothing but very nice, really good drinks and incredibly good food. In a warm atmosphere, with nice people and where you feel like you are on Svalbard. I liked everything. It hit me completely. And it will surely hit you and those...you travel with. Whether you want a casual moment with drinks, food or both. Do yourself a favor. Visit Kroa.More

Been here twice on this trip (as it was the only restsurant open at that time of the day) Good food, friendly staff, rather small pizzas ( 😀 ) and cool interior. Great for lunch (haven't had dinner there)

Nice people and service. Food average. We had burger , onion soup and pizza. The soup was a bit tasteless.

The food is OK - nothing special.... similar with a home food from microwave. The interior looks nice from outside and inside, suites to this place. Locals like to drink beer here. P.S. there is the famous bust of Lenin inside at the bar

They have a lunch menu until 4 and then a la carte dinner menu. Nice place, fast service and the burgers were tasty! But asked for some mayo for our fries and were charged an extra 15 NOK for that...

As Longyearbyen is a very vulnerable place with regards to Covid-19, it was reassuring to see that all guests had to leave their contact information in case of necessary contact tracing. Other places could learn from that. Service was quick and friendly. We ordered hamburger...and did not have to wait long. The food was tasty and the quality matched our expectations.More
