“Beautiful restaurant and dinner”
Review of Gruvelageret

Gruvelageret
Ranked #1 of 16 Restaurants in Longyearbyen
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$59 - US$144
Description: 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.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 4-course dinner with wine at Gruvelageret. The elegant furnishings are made out of old fittings from coal mines and the interior is romantically candlelit. Our server was very friendly and informative about the dishes. We were impressed to see Rabl Gruener Veltliner and wonderful Scapa whisky. We will definitely dine here again on our next trip to Svalbard.

Fantastic atmosphere and lovely staff. The food was everything we expected and more. This restaurant is worth a visit to Longyearbyen alone.

We walked here in the cold rain and it was so nice to come into the inviting, cozy restaurant. The chef decided to prepare an extra course the night we were there, which was kind treat. Each dish was becutiful in both presenation and taste. It is a bit pricy, but we felt it was well worth it.

Arrived this very cosy and old looking, perfectly renovated place as a couple. It was quiet, nice music, old mining pictures to look at - and a smily welcome.

We had the four dish menu, and the wine that was recomended. From the first course we had happy smiles, and enjoyed the food and generous glasses of wine.

Presentation of the food was nice, the taste over expectations. The waitress was not pushy, but gave us full attention. The plates could have been warmer though, as they were a bit cold for eating slowly.

Had a few drinks at the fireplace afterwards.

Would go there again, and send my wife to the funny toilet...

Thank Henning B
