Look, we were excited for Huset and saved this for our friend's birthday dinner. The food was underwhelming. Certainly, the serving size was big and you will leave with a full belly but the taste is forgettable. For the same price, I would suggest Gruvelageret...More

We had an arranged dinner for 50 friends. The starter was whale carpaccio and delicious, the main dish was an entrecôte which you could not cut through. This place has s famous wine cellar. Go there if wine is your passion.

We all chose the 5 course tasting menu and that was plenty of food. With all the extra tastings between the courses it actually ended up being 10 courses. The dinner took about 3 hours. The food was excellent and the presentation was very creative...More

Beautiful setting and space. We were pleasantly surprised to find such fine dining, 78 degrees north. Delicious dinner, equally delicious cocktails and a wine cellar, which we were fortunate to tour, to die for. Excellent!
