“Pub food and nightlife”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

A good hybrid with simpler pub dishes and a great spot to attend the nightlife in Longyearbyen. Good quality of the food and acceptable prices. A regular hangout among locals.

“Great bar, great food, free pool!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Visited this place every day in Longyearbyen. Selection of beers is amazing (drank them dry of the Norwegian fruit beer though!) and the burgers are incredible.

Also, who doesn't like a free game of pool?

“Best all rounder in Longyearbyen”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

I have been in Longyearbyen for a week and Svalbar is my go-to option. They have an excellent beer list, with almost every beer worthwhile, particularly the Nøgne beers, a Norwegian brewery that makes beers based on international greats. The staff (at least the guy that serves during the day) are excellent with recommendations spot on.
Surprisingly the good is my favorite it Longyearbyen for the price. The meatball sandwich is delicious and my default meal here.

“Overrated”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Ignorant staff. They're mostly busy taking each other's picture behind the bar. Food did not arrive to the whole table at once. Menu is boring. Food nothing to write home about. Will not return.

“Good burger, but overrated reviews...”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Went to have a burger here based on the reviews on Tripadvisor….
Was disappointed because it had been overrated in the reviews. However, don’t get me wrong, it was still nice. Do like the place itself a lot - pool tables, cool staff and wide selection of beer.
