It is conveniently located right next to the harbor so we went on a lovely stroll after dinner to take in the sights and sounds of Husavik. The staff was very friendly as well. Only downside is that it was a little on the pricey... More

Nice place, with a very good location in front of the harbour and good views. However the food was average. Nothing special in my opinion.

The place is a taven style restaurant with wood I interior and fishing decor. The waiter was very friendly and the burger I had was fantastic! It was juicy with lots of flavor. Definitely somewhere id eat again.

Tics all the boxes, Prices are fair too. We ate a simple meal of a burger and patato wedges and it was not only prepared really well, it was also presented very nicely. On top of that the staff was very friendly. Very nice place,thinking of eating there tonight again.

After a long day driving 300 miles from Bakkagerdi the long way round via Raurhofn, we were more than ready for a good meal. Having seen reviews of the Gamli Baukur we had high hopes of some delicious food. Set right down on the harbour front, the restaurant is easy to find and the building itself is interesting, if rather... More
