Taergesen is a small town restaurant which contrary to some other similar restaurants we have found along our ride around Iceland is of poor quality and very expensive, considering the quality of its food. We had soup which was of poor quality, almost out of a soup package; the chicken fillet dish did not meet Iceland's average standards, not the... More

The place has a simple menu with basic choices. The trout I had gave the impression of having been frozen - it certainly wasn't fresh - something I initially had taken for granted on a water filled island like Iceland. The few vegetables on the plate looked lost. The best were the chips.

Had been a long day and we were struggling to find somewhere to eat, asked the sat navs opinion and it led us to this little gem', tucked away' next door to the blue fox. Fab welcome, nice big menu loads of food and beer options - really... More

With all that Iceland has to offer, this has to be one of my most favorite places to go as a getaway. If not for the amazing scenery, but for the family that owns this place. They were kind and generous to my friends and I. Everyday is offered a lovely breakfast and coffee. Great burgers, and seriously special pizza... More

Beautiful place, I stayed at the old tærgesen with a shared bathroom. The staff was super nice and the room had this really cozy athmosphere. And everything was in vintage style. We also had pizza for dinner and it is the best pizza I've ever tasted! I would definetely reccommend this place!:)

We visited this restaurant as it was filmed as part of Fortitude but the food was a very pleasant surprise and se we went again the next evening. We tried the pizza, the fish and chips and the catch of the day and all were delicious and prices reasonable. Don't be put off by the decor.
