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...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....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...
