I had the seafood soup and it was really spicy. My kids had the seafood kidssoup, it was just as spicy ,so they couldn’t eat it at all. All I got was “oh sorry, yeah I think it was to spicy today ” when I...let them know my kids were not able to eat the food.More

We were happy to find a cosy restaurant by the sea. We had only meat soup which was very good. Rich in taste. The bowl was with a medium size. Good for us.

If I wasn't so full, I would have eaten another portion of the seafood soup. Pleasant eatery that I often return to when I'm in Holmavik.

Thanks to a blizzard, we ended up spending an extra two nights in Hólmavík and so we spent the days at this wonderful place as they have a sofa and lovely cheerful staff. We ate all our meals there plus elevenses and afternoon tea (well...it was snowing hard!). The food is superb! And yes, we did try it all ... Thanks Totla, Anna, and Jakob. Hope to see you all again one day.More

We decided to come back here a few days after visiting the museum for lunch and wasn’t disappointed. Probably above average prices for a village, but I guess they have the monopoly! I had Kjotsupa (my favourite) and it was about £12 for a bowl....It was gorgeous tho! Attentive staff, relaxed service, clean toilets on the ground floor and adjacent parking. Would recommend.More

We were driving through on our trip from Reykjavik to Isafjordur and we knew about the icelandic witchcraft and sorcery museum but had no idea that they would have food there. Both my friend and I had the seafood soup and it was one of...the best meals we had on our trip to iceland and certainly the best, most flavorful and perhaps most authentic (im not icelandic so i’m no authority on the subject) seafood soup we had on our whole trip. Absolutely would go back and still thinking about this soup wishing i knew how to make it! If you are near here its absolutely worth the stop!More

Restaurant Galdur is located inside the Sorcery and Witchcraft Museum in Hólmavík, and I stopped there for lunch on my way to Ísafjörður. I had the seafood soup with bread. Service was prompt, the portion was generous and the soup was tasty and filling. Next...time I'll also try dessert :-)More

But, it is actually really good. The restaurant is open year-round and the profits support the museum of witchcraft and sorcery which is contained in the same building. Full of travellers, those in the know, know that this is the only place to buy food...for hours. Luckily, the soup is warm and hearty and reasonably priced. We appreciated the rest stop and the museum, to be rated in a separate review.More

Our plans changed delightfully after our morning Whale Watching with Laki Tours and we walked down the dock to the Cafe below the Museum of Sorcery & Witchcraft. The weather was surprisingly sunny and beautiful so we sat outside at a picnic table. We ordered...Sorcerer's Met Soup which is Lamb stew, Seafood Soup, a vegetarian baked dish and Rhubarb cake with coffee and their specialty Icelandic Yarrow/Heather and Green Moss teas. I'm looking forward to visiting Hólmavik again during my stay at GilsfjördurArts.More

After our whale watching tour we walked over to Galdur, a party of 5 we had between us, the fish soup, the meat soup (lamb) and the vegetarian option. All were very pleased with our lunches, served outside and a warm day in September, We...had the most excellent rhubarb cake with moss tea afterward. Definitely recommend and will return.More
