A unique dining experience

We know that many of our guests are travelers visiting Longyearbyen, either private or together with their company. Often our guests have had a hectic day with a lot of adventures, and have been out in the arctic wilderness since early morning. We want to give our customers a unique food experience in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere while we show you some of Longyearbyens proudest history as an old mining town. You will still be placed out in the Arctic wilderness, right beneath the Longyear glacier, and we make sure that everyone with a busy day behind leaves us satisfied to perhaps explore the local pub Karlsberger Pub, or to go to bed to be rested for a new day in Longyerbyen.

What we offer

Additionally to the season menu we also offer customized events. We want Gruvelageret to be a place for everyone and want to be able to handle all extraordinary requests. This is some of the things we offer, and if you want something else out of the ordinary, please send us an e-mail.
