Okay, so you may be tired of burgers by this point in your trip... But trust me the Lobster Burger is AMAZING.. The burger is topped with lobster, a special jam, fried mushrooms and another yummy sauce. It comes with tasty fries and a nice fresh side salad.

Salka is really trying, the interior is cute, clean and cosy. Their wok chicken is excellent and their pizzas taste extremely good. The fish ingredients are really fresh. The service is usually quite good but if there is alot to do they sometimes seem to miss focus.

We called in to Restaurant Salka for lunch after our morning whale watching excursion. A good selection on the menu, fairly priced and good service.

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the Whale Museum. Menu offers enough options to appeal to most palettes. Wi-fi, friendly staff, good prices, and most of all great food.

This quaint little restaurant, next to Husavik's main harbor and whale watching hub, has the best soup in Iceland - and we tried a LOT of soup in Iceland. Absolutely get the lobster soup to warm your soul and spirits after a trip whale watching into the sea!

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.
