The menu is not cheap, but you should taste it. It is an unusual Arctic experience. I had an Arctic soup with shrimps, scallops and fish, as main course halibut with dry whale skin and as desert, served on huge natural rock, various cremes and fruit. My wife had whale tartar, reindeer steak with mushroom and icecream. Where can you... More

The continental breakfast was included with our hotel stay and had a variety. There were individual tables but the majority were long to accommodate a group so I think they have a lot of tour groups needing this arrangement. We met some nice people this way though. We had a welcome dinner not on the menu the first night that... More

We tried our dinner here while we stayed at Hotel Arctic and found that the food here tastes great particularly seafood fish and scallops are superbly fresh and juicy. Reindeer steak is excellent with a juicy tender medium raw steak but the Musk ox steak is disappointing given it is too sticky. Another great thing here is the stunning view... More

We had one dinner at Restaurant Ulo while we were staying at Hotel Arctic. Important to note that you need reservations ASAP. The meal was a delight from beginning to end. Firstly, let's recall that we are in Greenland but this was a meal worthy of any number of large cities in the world. First was a cured musk ox... More

While it seems like many others had good experiences here, we had a very bad experience. The service was terrible and none of our group of six enjoyed their food. The staff was especially inattentive.

Very good authentic Greenlandic food! You also have a great ocean view and the owner of the hotel keeps his sledge dogs nearby so you can see them from the window. I was not sure what to expect from my musk ox entree but it was very delicious!

This was by far the best dinner I had in Greenland. The service was very good, and the food was interesting and top quality. A limited menu felt quite repetitive, but overall, the place to go.

Had the reindeer dish on my first night in Ilulissat. Restaurant is in hotel Arctic. Acknowledged as the best place to sample Greenlandic cuisine. Musk ox and halibut and cod also available on menu and I had those too on subsequent days. Menu and photos of dishes are attached.

I was staying at the Hotel Arctic and though i was not having a great experience in terms of hotel reception service, the restaurant Ulo and it's staff made up for my most memorable times in Greenland, i won't be able to forget the service and quality of the food and views experienced in this place.

You will love Restaurant Ulo. Our gourmet cuisine is recognized as one of the very best in the whole country. The chefs are masters in their fields and use only the very finest Greenlandic and international raw materials. At the same time the experience is spiced by a bewitching view from the restaurant - of the Ilulissat harbour and life on the waters of Disko Bay among the gigantic icebergs.
