Its one of the rare places offering vegetarian good which we enjoyed thoroughly. Its part of the Radisson Blu group and they have never disappointed us the world over. So, if you are looking for vegan/ vegetarian food then you must visit it.

Having dinner after a very active day. Service was very good and efficient. Scenery from the restaurant was excellent. But the food was below expectations. King crab soup was strong but missing the taste of the crab. Halibut was spiced to death. And finally: double espresso was cold. I'm sorry, nothing better to say.

The service trailed but the food was tasty and nicely presented. The wine choices were good and the ambience was upscale. Surprised by the quality of the food in a good way.

We went here to try some local specialities like whale, seal and crab. The restaurant was lovely and the fact that everyone took their shoes of at such a nice restaurant just made our experience in to a memorable evening. The whale was absolutely amazing and so was the little taste of seal that we got to try. When you are in Longyearbyen this is a must.

Food was good here (although we didn't like taste of the Arctic - I think there is a reason why whale and reindeer haven't made it more internationally). The service was good, the room has a good view over the fjord but try to sit nearer the Windows - the part near the door feels like you are in a school hall).
