This restaurant is in a great location, next to the whale museum, whale watching behind it, etc. They have a decent menu with a number of choices. We had the hamburger with french fries & lettuce & tomato for 1890 ISK. It was a welcome...More

A place with warm atmosphere and delicious dishes. Not much seafood on the menu but the ones they have are really great. The waitresses are very friendly. High prices, yet 5 star it is.

This restaurant is a solid lunch option. It’s nothing fancy and the staff is nice. We had a small pizza with garlic bread. The sauce on the pizza was just tomato sauce (no herbs) so it was pretty bland, but the garlic bread (really a...More

Recently had dinner and drinks at this restaurant on a nice sunny July evening. The outside area atmosphere is very nice and the location is convenient if you are staying in town. Service and food was decent as well.

The menu is varied and meets the needs of everyone. There is two floors of dining, and fish is the main focus. There are nice views of the harbor and mountainins.

Ended up visiting this place two nights in a row. Good choice of food and relatively good value - for Iceland! Very enjoyable. Only criticism was that one meal was not piping hot but this was instantly sorted. Very welcoming resturant & can thoroughly recommend.

The selection of Icelandic food was good, service was pretty quick and nice homely interior. The only disappointment was a slightly grumpy waitress who was monosyllabic when asked for directions to the toilet.

After my whale watching tour (also with Salka and an amazing experience) I decided to profit from the wonderful weather and have a light lunch outside at Salka Restaurant. It was a very good choice and I really loved the shellfish soup :-) Staff is...More

We tried the puffin appetizer, it was good. Prices were OK which means expensive ;) as all food in Iceland is expensive. Service was so slow. We tried the cod and steak, they were really good. We also tried chocolate cake, was really good. Presentation...More

I guessed it was popular because it is at 1 min walking distance from the pier, but the place is actually very good choice. Comfortable, excellent service and a very expense menu: From pizzas to lobster. Highly recommended.

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.

Description
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.
