Great place for fish dishes. The fish soup is outstanding, so is the Salt Fish mousse. For the mains, I recommend the fish pans - Arctic Char, Grilled Salmon, Panfried Redfish and Plaice. All dishes comes with hearty salad and baby potatoes.

You can check out the menus in English on Messinn's website. There are two locations - the Laekjargotu one is near Tjornin (the pond) and the other one is near the Maritime Museum.
