Inspired by the polar history

Restaurant Polfareren has taken the name of Norwegian polar explorer Eivind Astrup (1871 – 1895), the young man who joined Robert Peary’s expedition to Greenland and returned home as the man who charted Melville Bay on the north-western coast of Greenland. He received the Order of St. Olav at age 21 – and a century later remains the youngest person to have received this prestigious award.


A hint of the Arctic

The restaurant’s fresh and exciting approach draws inspiration from Astrup’s momentous achievements. The restaurant’s a la carte menu are influenced by the Nordic cuisine. The chef, Joshua Wing, composes a tasty menu each month that includes a hint of the Arctic and a focus on seasonal produce. Vegetarian and vegan alternatives are also available. The wine list reflects the cuisine and is carefully chosen with respect for the small producer.

You will find the restaurant in cosy surroundings at Svalbard Hotel | Polfareren. We wish you an enjoyable overall experience!
