Good, quick service, not friendly, not unfriendly, did their job. There were quit a lot of people, quick service. Food was decent. Brownie would have been great to get selv made. They had pineapple juice, definitely not all restaurants have this. The local white beer...was amazing. The dirty fries even better. Good place to spent an cold afternoon.More

It’s a nice bar with good routines against COVID-19. Only one beer on tap, however, but cold and tasty ice beer from local brewery however.

Awful high noise from overcrowded "pool" Players, combined with filthy location and tired personnel, degrades the experience from the beautiful Iland of Svalbard.

After a long day out on a snow scooter, Svalbard was a fantastic place to relax. It’s warm and friendly with cool music, lively atmosphere. The food is great with huge portions - the cheesy fries with jalapeños and the nacho pizza are fabulous!

Svalbar was so perfect for lunch after a cold, but fun tour. Order a burger - mine was done perfectly, and the fries were heavenly. Service was very friendly and I hear it’s a great night crowd.

A relaxed and casual place serving local beer and a variety of drinks. We ordered local beer, Coke and mozarella sticks and onion rings. It tasted ok, but a bit too fatty. Nice and friendly staff. Next time we will try the pizza.
