Cozy family owned restaurant offering steaks, seafood, pizza, pasta or burgers made with passion. Our food is not off the shelf, but homemade from scratch. We offer typical icelandic dishes like lamb and cod or catfish in a fresh, modern style. In the summer time it is great to sit outside in our plaza and enjoy delicious food, snacks and cocktails. Housed in one of the oldest buildings in Husavik and in the city centre you can't miss us.

Really nice looking place, super friendly staff and good food. We had pizzas which were tasty and generous! The pizza is not the traditional Italian style but really good! We could have easily ordered just one and share it.

Super nice and friendly staff, very cute restaurant, feels cozy and comfortable. The selection if dishes is relatively big, ranging from national dishes to international „trendy“ food with an icelandic touch to it. The food is incredibly delicious, i am a big fan!!

This restaurant was my favourite in Iceland. Everything from the atmosphere to the food itself was perfect, and the staff are very nice. The interior is old-fashioned, but it suits the restaurant very well.

Yes we do. There is a Tofu dish and we make vegetable patties which are served with rice and different sorts of vegetables. Then there are different soups, depending on the daily offer like vegan tomato soup or mushroom soup.
