I had dinner here with my mother and brother on our last night in Longyearbyen. The bistro has a fairly small but great menu - I recommend the reindeer stew. Our waiter (sorry, I have forgotten his name) was fabulous. It was his first night working there but really knew his stuff - he took great delight in bringing us... More

I say "not that great", because I had expected a bit more out of a visit to the reputable "Huset" in Longyearbyen. I guess the restaurant is where the magic is presented and not the bistro, which is strange since it is the same kitchen. I'm not that much into set menus with small samples of different kind of ornamentation... More

Aggressive guards. Took our drinks away without notice. They said they were closing the alcohol sale- but sold drinks without notifying 5 minutes before. A bad experience to "loose" $120...

We enjoyed a litle drink, and then main course and dessert. Meat (lamb) was very good, I'd say perfect. The rest was like any other restaurant. It was not very cosy for a couple, but great for a group. Lack of atmosphere.

Served probably the best Lobster soup we will ever eat. Our waitress had only stayed at Longyearbyen for 5w, studying to become architect and doing her final essay about “How it will be living at Svalbard 300 years from now” (The year of 2316). The kitchen and the service was like taken from any of the fine dining restaurant’s in... More

From 4 to 6pm daily, they put on a wonderful meal for around AUD$16 - I have it on good authority that the locals all eat here as much as possible. My meal was a beautifully crafted rissoles, mashed potatoes and lingonberries. Now this might not sound too flash, but I can assure you, it was delicious. The staff know... More

The place has a got a great buzz and was packed. Luckily we made prior reservations. The food was fantastic. Great selection of wines. They apparently have over 20000 bottles of wine - the biggest collection in northern europe. Out waiter was exceptional. We were 4 of us with 4 different dietary requirements and she executed them with perfection. One... More

We decidede to try Huset Bistro as highly recommended by our guide. The Bistro had a limited number of dishes compared to the restaurant, but with cheaper prices: we tried the reindeer with pashed potates, together with a nice glass of white beer from Svalbard Bryggery. Service was very friendly and while waiting we had the opportunity to take a... More

We decided once again to try out the day's special on the Bistro located in the same building as the well reknowned Huset. The dish of the day on Saturdays is a beef with beairnaise and different potato varieties. You order at the desk and pay at once. The beefs were actually delicious. Two persons with one big beef, one... More
