We enjoyed the food; everything was very tasty from the fish soup and bread to the salads and many fish dishes. The dining room is very crowded; you wait on line for food. They could use more space and a different method of serving food...More

We'd heard about this place from other travellers and were lucky to get a reservation. Absolutely amazing - it's worth coming to the Westfjords just to eat here.

Went for lunch and was surprised with the quality of the fish there! Menu was limited (Cod cheeks and Halibut) but justice was done to them. At 2500ISK per person we could ask for no more.

This is a must-stop for anyone visiting Iceland. Take the time to travel to the Western Fiords. And have lunch (or dinner) at the small and quaint restaurant on the harbor in Isafjordur. At first you might not see it, but trust the map. Very...More

This restaurant DID NOT disappoint! Such a great atmosphere and staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here! Served buffet-style, there is no menu. Just the best from the day’s catch. You’re seated amongst other guests at picnic-type tables. When the food is ready, staff members...More

Unlike dinner I believe they serve from a menu at lunchtime. Sounds like an ideal stop for a cruise visit.

Yes, I sensed coconut milk as well, but I do not know how to cook that amazing soup. Contact them on FB, they very kind in answering.

Tjoruhusið is a fish restaurant in Isafjorður, Iceland. We only serve whatever's fresh out of the ocean on a given day, so there's no menu to speak of, but during high season we usually offer a buffet of everything good for dinner, while lunch tends to be a la carte. For dinner, we generally do two separate seatings, at 7pm and 9pm, although we try to be flexible if possible. Do note that we are for the most part closed during wintertime (from early November 'til Easter, usually), and then that our openings in the early spring months tend to be sporadic. We advise anyone intending to dine with us to call ahead to ensure we are open. Any special needs (lactose/gluten/etc) should be noted in advance. Tjoruhusið does not operate a Reykjavik location and is not at all affiliated with any Reykjavik restaurant, regardless of what some of them might be claiming.
