This is a must see if you are in Longyearbyen - it is impossible to imagine how they have taken out the coal without having visited this place - 😊

This mine hut outside Longyearbyen in Svalbard is worth a visit. Not only because of the special surroundings, but because of the good food. There is no choice, but only one 4-course meal. The bean soup with smoked reindeer heart was splendid, the reindeer taco...More

Exceptional food and warm and welcoming service. Not to be missed! Take a taxi from town and enjoy a leisurely stroll down hill after dinner. Kristin Mork was attentive to every detail, starting with our reservation.

No dress code that I noticed. Casual. Most people who visit Svalbard bring good clothes for the wilderness.

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.
