The Funktionærmessen Restaurant at Funken Lodge is back in all its splendour and invites you to a culinary experience without compare. Enjoy international dishes and Arctic specialties along with a fine selection of delicious beverages.
Where history meets innovation
Funktionærmessen is Longyearbyen's most historic eatery, where the mining company's officials used to eat while enjoyhing amazing views of the city and the mountains. Following renovations in 2017, we can now welcome guests into our cellars where our staff are ready to provide exceptional service and quality produce. The meat pie is sure to make the restaurant a favourite, as the only one in town serving slow-cooked beef, and for the seafood lover, the fusion menu is packed with fresh seafood and Arctic specialties. Enjoy your northernmost culinary experience at Functionalism Restaurant, where history meets innovation.
A great selection of wine and champagne
We have a wine list with over 300 different wines, and the cellar is bursting with excellent vintages, especially from Bordeaux. We have 15,000 bottles and more than 70 varieties of champagne, probably the largest selection in Norway.
Several times a year we host a Winemaker's Dinner at the Funktionærmessen Restaurant, in collaboration with famous and prominent wine houses. Wine vendors present exciting wines, while the kitchen serves delicious dishes that perfectly match the wines. The Winemaker's Dinner is popular with both travellers and residents, and we recommend that you make reservations quickly to avoid missing this unique experience. For table reservations and information about the next opportunity, please speak to the reception or contact us here.
