We booked this one as it was recommended in the reviews on TripAdvisor and we agree, a booking is certainly necessary, at this time of year at least. We certainly weren't disappointed Kroa. The service was amazing, the waitress took very good care of us and the food came out quickly. The food was delicious and generous and the atmosphere warming and rustic, which was just right for the Arctic setting!

This is one of the hot locations in town so you need to book if you want to be assured of a seat. First sitting means that you will need to vacate for the next diners after approx 1.5 hours and the bar is not large so if there are a group of you then book the second sitting (?2130 hrs) and there is a large sitting area available. Great food and good service left us with a positive impression. Busy environment handled professionally but not much time to chat at evening time. Very much worth a visit even though there are a limited number of options in town.

I was invited to dine at Kroa and as it is quite popular,the reservation needed to be made. The service was good, I liked the atmosphere,it is innovative.
The main course was a catch of the day. It was marvelous. Fish was great and the vegetables too. I had a chocolate cake after and it was as it should be....chocolaty....:-). I would come back here for more next time.

Of course you don't have lot to choose in Svalbard....but this one is a good choice.

SERVICE: No luxury. Not to much etiquette. Simple and professional service. "Norwegian" sympathy.

FOOD: Splendid flavor. Good quality products in the confection. Good Presentation.

ATMOSPHERE: Quiet at lunch, in October. Kind of cozy, not excessively warm.

The memory and the feeling i brought with me is the soup's flavor...suberb

Not cheap - i've paid about 40euros with no win, but that's ok....no regrets - Pay Good it well!

See the pictures....Enjoy....Svalbard is fantastic!
