Funktionærmessen Restaurant


Funktionærmessen Restaurant offers the best views in Longyearbyen, and was ranked as number nineteen over Norway's best restaurants (The White Guide Nordic, 2016). A historic place that has long been associated with class and quality. It was here that the mining company's functionaries enjoyed their meals with stunning panoramic views of Longyearbyen, Hiorthfjellet and Longyearbreen. Funktionærmessen Restaurant has been refurbished and we look forward to welcoming you to our new, exciting dining experience from February 1, 2018.

The best view in Longyearbyen

This historical place is where the upper management officials from the coal mining company enjoyed their meals with an amazing panorama view over Longyearbyen, the Longyear glacier and Hiortfjellet. Dining here, you will truly feel of a touch of class and history.

Our restaurant aims to be the best in Svalbard, of course, and we have a good selection of wines. The list consists of over 300 different types, and the cellar abounds with good vintage bottles - especially from well-known Bourdeaux producers. Our restaurant have 15,000 bottles available! We can also tempt with over 70 varieties of champagne! Here you have the opportunity to make some really good choices, and maybe get a new favourite?
