Thank you all for an amazing and adventurous season 2019. Kaffi Lara - El Grillo Bar is located in the heart of Seyðisfjorður and is known for its local beer and BBQ plates.

We ate here two nights and had an afternoon snack on another day. The food was good, and much of it is cooked on a grill outside. Their sweets are also good.

Pub like menu. Lamb was yummy. English soul music playing softly in background which I appreciated. They sell hides/skins which is a bonus. You won't be disappointed.

Had great beer and burgers here. Friendly staff and good food. After two nights of three course meals we wanted somewhere speedier, more casual and cheaper! This place fitted the bill and we can recommend on this basis. Delightful!

The choice of restaurants In Iceland is limited and never cheap. Seydisfjordur has 3 restaurants at the time. On the evening before the ferry leaves they are al busy. The atmosfere was good, the food was fine.
