Excellent food and service. Loved the rustic Arctic ambience. The menu changes every 3 months. We had reindeer burrito, fish cooked to perfection and dessert with local berries. We also enjoyed their wine selection.

Description
Gruvelageret AS is location at a historical part of Longyearbyen in a former warehouse for the mining company. The interior represents 100 years of coal mining at Svalbard, and the kitchen focuses on arctic cuisine. We want to show you the history of Svalbard and Longyearbyen, combined with good food and beverage in a nice atmosphere right beneath the Longyear glacier. NB! We have problems with the location on TripAdvisor since we are not part of the road network. Please look at our website on how to find us.
