Winter season has begun and this is the only place available to eat in the evening. Pizza seemed to be the main draw for the locals. We ate one of the specials of the day, fish and chips. Staff was very friendly.

This restaurant serves excellent food. We could try fish from the fjords, the soup of the day and a dessert. Everything was delicious. The price is correct regarding the quality and the staff is nice. Definitely THE place to go in this town

As fairly well travelled, but very experienced pizza eaters, the bistro at Skaftfell is highly recommended. Don't miss this eatery when you've taken in the spectacular scenery of Seydisfjordur.
