I travel a lot and have visited restaurants all over the world. From The French Laudry outside San Francisco to small hole in the wall in Tokyo with fantastic food. Gruvelagret is up there and not ashamed.

Gruvelageret AS is location at a historical part of Longyearbyen in a former warehouse for the mining company. The interior represents 100 years of coal mining at Svalbard, and the kitchen focuses on arctic cuisine. We want to show you the history of Svalbard and Longyearbyen, combined with good food and beverage in a nice atmosphere right beneath the Longyear glacier. NB! We have problems with the location on TripAdvisor since we are not part of the road network. Please look at our website on how to find us.
