Best place to get a pizza we found. We ate early and maybe gets a bit full later as it is a busy bar but the food is consistently decent and reasonably priced.

This is the place to be for a nice low-key meal or meeting up with the locals over a drink or two. The staff is very welcoming and has some great stories about how to live in Longyearbyen and all its adventures that follows. Come...More

Here for a conference and wanted out! A short walk from the Radisson in the cool evening, the beer was good and the blue cheese burger was tasty. Interesting crowd, friendly staff and an experience in this arctic town.

Good bar in the middle of Longyearbyen which also does reliable food. With the advent of the local Svalbard brewery there is also decent beer on tap. Can get a bit noisy on evenings where sports events are on the tv.
