A unique

dining experience

on Svalbard

A warm welcome awaits

We are proud to have restored and rebuilt Gruvelageret in Sverdrupbyen to a unique and new restaurant. The restaurants interior focus on the history of early coal mining in Longyearbyen. The kitchen takes pride in serving genuine, exquisite food with love for the arctic cuisine.

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.
