I literally love this pub. Cosy and friendly. When I was a bit nervous on my first day here it was welcoming and the food was delicious (pulled pork and mango relish sandwich). We soon settled but came back for pizza (which was fab) and for the beers!!! Guys behind the bar are real friendly! Great place to stop, warm... More

Surprised by some of the reviews below I found this place to be really good - nice and relaxed atmosphere, good friendly service (including one barmaid so beautiful that it serves as a good reminder you're in a pub at the end of the world) and great bar food. Nice place to while away the evening after a day's exploration.... More

While they serve food, they do not go to the tables and this is in a pretty expensive hotel. That's already terrible enough. The employee prefers to pretend not seing you rather then letting you know that you have to go to the bar and it's not written anywhere that you should do that. And I'm writing this even before...

This is a very good alternative to Kroa. Try The days special. We had the cod that was great. The kids had a special made margarita pizza that was not on the menu. I had the barentz burger that tasted great

A nice little pub at Radisson, serving a wide range of alcohol from belgian beers to local aquvit. Have a selection of fast food (Pizzas, Burgers, Fries, etc.) for travellers who might not prefer the exotic meat on offer in the main restaurant Nansen. Good staff and lively place well into the midnight.

This put is belonging to the Radisson Polar hotel. Great interior and good feeling. Sometimes good live music. Had a hamburger and this was one of the best ever. Saturday night it was full and top music and dancing.

I have eaten often here and recommend it. They have a short bar menu, but the food is good (prepared in the same kitchen as the Radisson Hotel restaurant). If you have pizza, try the Italian; it is the only pizza on the menu without corn or pineapple (a Norwegian trait). The fish & chips is also usually good. The... More
