On our first evening in Longyearbyen we went to Nansen. This was from start to finish a success. The Dining Room is very elegant with a nice view towards the Fjord. The food was just outstanding. We had a venison tartar and cod as starter. The tartar was amazing. I didn't have a lot of venison tartar's before but this was simply the best. For our mains we had the arctic char and the reindeer. Both super delicious. We wanted to go back for lunch one day but unfortunately, they don't offer lunch. This restaurant though, is absolutely worth it. Pricewise (being used to London prices) it was not that expensive. We had beer and wine and were surprised that the final bill was around 100GBP. Very reasonable. A must go place while you are there.
