Smoked seal, whale, halibut with roe butter and reindeer sausage. Most of the meat here is hunted by one of the three trappers left in Spitsbergen; then prepared in Isfjord Radio's modern kitchen by our top chefs with quality that would please even the toughest food critic.
If you are visiting Isfjord Radio at dinner time, you are in for a wonderful surprise. There are no words to describe it – you have to try it for yourself. We call our dinners ‘fine dining in casual clothing’. Your tastebuds are in for a real treat, but you can enjoy the feast in a relaxed atmosphere. No ties, no high heels, just you and the Arctic. To top off the food, we offer a well-planned wine menu to accompany each dinner – try it out!
As much as possible, we try to use locally sourced and locally hunted ingredients. We buy our reindeer meat from a local trapper, Tommy Sandal, who has been hunting in Svalbard for over fifteen years. He uses traditional hunting methods, because he believes that it is the most ecological way to catch game. The history of hunting in Svalbard dates all the way back to the 17th century. Some ingredients, such as Arctic Char, are caught by our chef himself. He also hunts the Bearded Seal used in our cooking, in order to ensure that the meat is of the highest quality. Even herbs are grown locally at Isfjord Radio, despite the harsh weather conditions. Those ingredients that are not locally available in Spitsbergen are brought in from mainland Norway, and are always Norwegian-produced.
