Great atmosphere in this historical house. We had a great dinner with good advice from our waiters. Was very helpful finding the best wine to go with the meal. Such a good experience and quite different from what we expected. Will come back.

Don't be fooled, what you read is true. Huset is a true gourmet experience in the Arctic circle. They have an unbelievable wine selection and we were assisted by the inhouse sommelier throughout the meal. We ordered an exquisite 5 course meal and enjoyed every bite of it! It was a superb experience.

I liked the waiters. They were knowledgeable, pleasant, and they gladly shared the history of Huset Bistro and Svalbard. We had the 'Arctic Surprise Package'. Very tasty. But the portions were small as they often are in restaurants like this. Some of the food was served on stones and planks. Cool! I would deffintly go back, but I'll be asking... More

We opted for just a main course without a starter but found we didn't have space for dessert! Good meal. Pleasant surroundings. Helpful staff but they cleared our main course away but didn't come back hence only 4* not 5*.

We had the Svalbard tasting menu which was fabulous in quality, variety, presentation and service. The wine pairings were excellent and interesting selections from all over the world. Seal, reindeer, and whale were among the many local delicacies we enjoyed. We were graciously taken on a tour of the extensive wine cellar. This was a great evening and dining experience... More

Longyearbyen has only about 2000 residents, on an island hundreds of miles north of the rest of Norway, where it enjoys permanent darkness for almost 4 months of the year. Despite this, it is home to this exceptional restaurant. As we visited for my birthday, we had the full experience - a wine tasting, followed by a tasting menu with... More

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
