Huset at Svalbard is a must. The food was fantastic. The winecellar at Huset is one of the best in Europ. The surrondings are very special. Everyone must have a go at Huset, under the northern light.

We had dinner at Huset on New Year’s Eve 2016! We arrived there at about 7 pm and I started up by tagging along a group that got a tour of the wine cellar. Keep in mind that this restaurant is located in Longyearbyen on Svalbard which is on the edge of the habitable world. There were several rooms of... More

We came with high expectations and we were not dissapointed. The menu is set, you only choose between 5 or 7 courses. We went for 5. The food was really good, although the portions could have been bigger. The waiter, Mathias, was so knowledgeable about the food, the wine and even the polar bear rug on the wall, I was... More

We enjoyed the 5 course with selected wines. After seeing a review on TV and reading reviews we were not disappointed. The service was impeccable and the food unique and brought together well. Highly recommend

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.

We were really satisfied with our visit at Huset. We ate the 7-course tasting menu and the food was truly amazing and creative. The wine-pairing was really good as well. The staff was skilled and very good at presenting the food and the story of the wines. Neither of us understand why this restaurant doesn't already have a Michelin-star. It's... More

Served probably the best Lobster soup we will ever eat.

Huset is Norwegian for house, but what a house! A lovely waiting room/bar, a very extensive cellar, and one upstairs the rooms are a delight as was the food, and the wines, and dessert, and the bear on the wall!!!!

Really fine dining, nothing to complain about. Even the different sea mammals were really good, natural taste with hint of smoke.
