I had the baked organic lamb and my husband had the fish of the day which was cod. Both were excellently prepared. Ambiance is quite nice - nice wood interior, nautically-themed. Laid out nicely with two levels. We sat upstairs.

We stopped here for a cup of coffee and a light dessert after having lunch at Naustid. The service was quick and friendly - typical of what we experienced in Iceland - and the food and coffee was fine.

This is one of the more popular restaurants in town as it is situated right across from the harbor. It was a sunny day so there was lots of seating outside, inside and there is also an upstairs. We did not make reservations but were...More

A great choice for a cozy dinner after an exciting but bone chilling whale watching adventure on a sailing ship! Rustic nautical decor and excellent food makes this a winner. My granddaughter, who is vegetarian, commented that her risotto was her very most favorite meal...More
