Radisson Blu Polar Hotel, Spitsbergen - Restaurant Nansen

Restaurant Nansen's menu is based on the Asian fusion concept. The food is top-notch, but the atmosphere is informal, and you’re welcome to come in your snowmobile gear, straight from the wild. 

We've made our windows wide so that you'll dine with the best views of the nearby mountains—just as if you were outside!
