The Icelandic name is Orkin Hans Noa but if you ask anyone for Noa Seafood Restaurant they will know it and don't let anyone steer you to any other restaurant if you want seafood. The food is exquisite and prepared with great care. We started with the perfectly seasoned and flavorful lobster and fish soup. We then chose the cod... More

This is a smaller restaurant with a small staff. Everything is personally prepared. No assembly line. You can discern by the combination of flavore that the chef is talented. We had the catch of the day; it was excellent. The owner pitches right in with the staff. Everyone was pleasant and accommodating. Suggest a window by with a view of... More

Our guide book indicated this was a good restaurant but that is a huge understatement. The decor is eclectic and fun to look at but the cuisine is superb. The wait staff and chef all appeared very young but so talented and dedicated that we were surprised and delighted. This restaurant is in an odd location and easily overlooked but... More

Noa is a fish restaurant pure and simple. Every day, there are two or three choices of fresh catch that the chef likes to pan fry. The fish is delivered to your table and served form the pan in which it was prepared and it is great. My wife had an Icelandic fish called ling, which is a member of... More

Some things are better than others But when you get it right there is some real quality on the menu It's a touch of a forsaken place and we went in a snow storm and were the only guests which only added to the fun but you can eat very well here Being a fishing town on the sea I... More

The restaurant is very cosy with nice atmosphere. I ordered the lobster as a starter and it was just delicious. I highly recommend this place.

Go for the catch of the day: These folks specialise in fish and they do outstanding fish dishes. The catch of the day included both spotted catfish and blue ling which are our favourite fish dishes. They came sizzling on the pan with some potatoes and vegetables, just perfectly done. Finally, the house wine and desert crème brûlée were perfect... More

They might not have everything on the menu available, but I think that's a sign that they're only serving the freshest catch. The cod was delicious, and the presentation is nice- it comes out in the frying pan it was cooked in.
