Such an amazing array of fish with flavours from all over the world. Our meal was sensational. It was all you could eat but after trying most things we could barely fit in another mouthful. Small range of cocktails and good wine made this a...fabulous dining experience in a remote town.More
Excellent food, great ambiance, and friendly staff. This restaurant offers a seafood buffet of the fresh catch of the day. Staff practice social distancing and sanitizing measures for the health of all. It is a small venue and fills up fast, but you can call...ahead.More
Came there during Covid-19. They had solved everything fantasticly. It is a buffet style seafood restaurant. And to ensure the 2 m/ 6 ft rule they only allowed one table at a time to go to the buffet and they themselfes served onto plates. Absolutely...fantastic variety of seafood, excellent combinations of cooking methods/ spices/ tastes for each fish species. Well priced and would recommend!!More
Let me preface this by saying I’m not really a fish-person. As in I don’t eat all that much fish, although I’m no merman either. That being said, I tried all of the fish on offer at this restaurant and there wasn’t on you could...say was better than the rest. The buffet style sure had no affect on the quality. Some of the freshest tastiest fish I’ve ever had, and I’m not even sure I know what half of them were given my Icelandic is still not perfect.
The whole place has this cozy vibe in an authentic old fish-house location and I went up three times until I felt maybe I shouldn’t make myself feel too sick.
Although a little disconcerted by lack of social distancing and shared serving utensils, we enjoyed the tasty buffet selection of three fish dishes. My favorite dish turned out to be a broccoli salad! The soup was not to my taste by my partner enjoyed it....A reservation is a must to avoid missing out. While I would not drive to Isafjordur specially to dine here, if part of your travels I would try it out. Its good value for money with coffee / tea/ cocoa included in the meal.More
We had read about this place before arriving in Isafjordur and our first stop was to book a table for one of the evenings we were staying in the town, The hostess put us on the waiting list and phoned later to confirm for 21:00...that night.
When we arrived we were seated on one of the long benches and soon after our table-mates arrived and all the other tables were full. We got a drink before the chef came out to explain the process - in Icelandic but our neighbours gave us a translated version.
Soup is served first then the main courses/salads. If you don't want to stand waiting then watch the queue and only get up when it is small, there seemed to be more than enough to go around so you aren't missing out by waiting.
I can't remember what all the fish dishes were but we tried all of them and nothing was less than superb. And going back for seconds was encouraged so even though this was our most expensive evening meal (15000kr/£85/94EUR/$110 for two buffets and two Einstock beers) I think it was very good value - both for quality and quantity.
The buffet/communal dining experience just added to the evening, it felt like an authentic Icelandic evening.More
We couldn’t eat there. When we arrived at 12:15 we didn’t have a reservation but the waiter told us there is a table for us as long as we have finished by 13:00. We accepted and she walked us to a table with narrow benches...to sit on and people passing by literally above our heads. Our feet didn’t fit under the table as the wooden table had fat legs. And of course there was no support for our tired backs. The table and benches were dirty but the plates looked clean. Although I never trust plates and cutlery that already are on table, I thought I will give them a chance. Then the waiter returned and told us that it’s buffet style and the soup is already there but everything else like salads and main courses will be on the buffet later. She also asked us if we want anything to drink, which is charged extra. So at this point we were left wandering: a) how we will finish before 13:00 if the food is not ready?!? b) when will it be ready? She only responded “soon” c) how much we will pay? d) what’s the cost of drinks? e) what drinks are available? Since there were no menus, no comfortable seats, not a clean place, no food (!!) and we had a place to seat only for 40 minutes the only option was to leave. There are plenty of other nice restaurants in town after all.More
