Excellent food. Small dining area, so it's a fairly intimate experience. Only two waiters working in the dining area. Nice view of the harbor. I got the puffin as an appetizer and the cod ("saltfish") as the main course. Both were excellent. The cod was,...More

We ate here last week when staying at the Hotel Isafjordur, which is attached to the restaurant. The service was very good, and the food well-presented and tasty. We had the marinated lamb, which was good. Would happily eat here again if staying in Isafjordur.

The dinner was excellent, the fish soup for a starter and the beef and fish for main course. Quick and good service and some of the bad rew. were proved wrong.

A friend and I stopped into the Hótel Ísafjörður after a day hike looking for a hearty meal. The place was more...upscale...than our attire, but the atmosphere was unpretentious and the waitstaff friendly. Við Pollinn's marinated, roasted lamb with asparagus, though, is really what this...More
