Midday and just off the ferry in Heimaey's harbor--where to find lunch? The guidebook had several options, but we lucked out when we stumbled onto Fiskibarinn--touting the freshest fish on Heimaey Island. My fish and chips were excellent. My lunch partners couldn't stop raving about...More

It was one of the best meals of the trip. It’s just a small little place but the fish is so fresh yet simply made. A must if you’re in the area.
