“Fantastic Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

I could not imagine a better end to our adventurous day driving through the snowy countryside of eastern Iceland. This small guesthouse/full restaurant is an absolute gem in this sparsely populated area of Iceland. We were the only guests so the entire restaurant was ours. Margret cooked us one of the best meals we had during our entire stay in Iceland. The menu includes fresh seafood, lamb and chicken dishes, salads, excellent soups and a good selection of wine/beer. We also appreciated to find some excellent Czech Budweisser beer which brought some memories of home back to us.
Request table with view of the Atlantic Ocean and watch sunset over the Fjords. This property is located slightly off Road no. 1, a few meters outside Breiðdalsvík. I would definitely stay overnight if I did not stay at another property already. This guesthouse has 4 rooms. Highly recommended.

“A must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

A must in Iceland!! On the way to visit the fjords you must stop there for a meal, a cafe and some cakes.

“Just Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

This place was a great place to stop and just relax. It was full of charm and the food was great. The best hot chocolate ever with a warmer and real whip cream.
