Food was a little better than average but the draw for this restaurant is the lovely atmosphere and wooden decor. Cosy and welcoming with great staff.

Nice and cosy place. It has this look and feeling that represent raw nature of spitsbergen, like untreated wood and seal skin. There are also some historical pictures of the early settlers, which helps to set the atmosphere. The food is superb. I had a pepper steak, and the peppersauce is probably the best I ever had. I can definently recomend this place.

I ate startes, main course and dessert. Good quality and taste but also quite expensive. Also comfortable and nice looking place.

We ate here twice, once for lunch and then again for dinner. Lunch was no problem. The menu isn't large, but the food was good. Dinner is an issue. If you want to come here for dinner, try to get a reservation ahead of time. We did not have one, but someone had just left, so they gave us their table. The food was interesting and different. We even tried some Minke Whale 8-0, but it was good and they are not endangered...

We came for dinner one night. Everything looked good but we ordered the pizza and wished we hadn't. It wasn't very good at all--crust was bready and not flavorful. All the other food that came out looked great and the dessert was divine. Unfortunately, they had limited vegetarian options so I only had one option other than pizza. But the burgers and meat dishes all looked good. My husband wished he had sampled something else.
