Full disclosure that we did not eat here. We went inside, sat down and took a look at the menu which included whale, puffin and horse. Staff were very friendly, but the menu items turned us off immediately, so we headed back to the Pallett café up the street. Prices were high, but so is everything else!

It was particularly busy so maybe the beer swilling party atmosphere was not happening. We were put in a corner so even further from it all. I am sure if busy, this place could be quite fun. Food as I recall was different and nice.

We were drawn to this place because of the appearance. It was a good choice. The food was good and if you have an experimental nature you should try the sampler platter with two different Haggis choices, two Herring samples, fermented Shark and testicles, wow some of that was hard but some surprisingly very good.

Good food, funcky & typical restaurant. Nice view on the harbor & ocean. You need to make a reservation. Icelandic lobster with garlic bread is excellent, we tried as appetizer the shark with s shot of the typical alcohol (not my taste, but interesting).

We stopped in for a drink and snack and were pleasantly surprised how delicious it was!! Try the Red Riding Hood mojito to drink, then the faux pizza and the Alice in wonderland for your apps! Not much food, but full of flavor!!

The food was different, but good. Meals in Scandinavia are expensive, but it wasn't exorbitant. Staff was in Viking wear.

This is a lovely Viking attraction a tourist place, but the food is delicious, the waiters are very good, the place is probably too touristic, but still a very interesting place to see Vikings!. I went on a Monday night and the place was very empty just 3 tables taken, this might be a weekend place, but as a tourist... More

One the way to the airport we ended some food and found this little gem on the way. Didn't know what to expect but food was very nice and it is availing bar style setting. Would comeback for sure.

I thought it was a tourist trap to be fair but I was willing to try it. Never been in a place like this. The food is really good. if you go there make sure to try the Viking dinner. There was a skald coming to the tables singing and entertaining. The mead was awesome. The staff is really nice.... More

We were staying at the hotel on site so it was 30 seconds away. We had eaten out at a number of local restaurants and decided to give the fish of the day course a try. Who ever was responsible for the cooking seriously knew how to cook cod, it was delicious.
