Finding a fabulous eatery with great food, service and ambiance at the top of the world may seem simple to you, but I am amazed. Credit and Kudos to all involved at Restaurant Narfeyrarstofa, especially to our server, Kristrum. I still remember the great bread!...More

What a wonderful surprise. Disappointed because our first choice could not accommodate us we were gifted with a wonderful meal. The waiter was superb. The food was outstanding and as an Interior designer, I was impressed either the decor.

The atmosphere was nice, service was very good, and both the food and it’s presentation was excellent. My only complaint might be that the prices are a bit too high for a casual outing, though the atmosphere of the place suggests that to be the...More

But go to both places and compare. For a small town, these are two gems. Both good service, intimate setting, excellent plating (the scallops at Narfeyrarstofa came on a slim piece of curved wood). Beautiful. Worth going to Stykkishólmur just to dine.

My family and I grabbed lunch here after a tour. The food was delicious (we loved the homemade bread, butter, and seafood soup), and the service was lovely. We couldn’t have asked for anything more!

Very pleased with our choice of meals. Grilled Salmon was very well cooked, mussels were big and tasty. We also had a vegan travelling with us who had the vegan steak, and was impressed with the variety of vegan dishes in the restaurant. It’s a...More

Great food, and the bread with garlic butter and smoked sea salt that was brought out before our food arrived was outrageously good.

We arrived late in the evening without reservation. The restaurant was really busy and we had to wait roughly 50 minutes for a table. The wait was worth every minute! The food was really good. We had a salat for a starter and seafood spaghetti....More

Excellent lunch, welcoming staff. The salmon was delicious. Plenty of good bread. Highly recommend this wonderful place. The town is worth exploring, volcano museum and crafts.

Travelling with my friends from Reykjavík (we are all locals) and had the best day in Stykkishólmur (what a lovely town btw). I usually don’t order fish in restaurants but followed my friends’ lead and got a fish soup! What a delight! The service was...More

Narfeyrarstofa restaurant and café is the oldest operating restaurant in Stykkishólmur. It’s a family business and is open all year round. Narfeyrarstofa’s menu features inventive dishes served artfully in the beautiful surroundings of the restaurant, where utterly charming views from the premises bring life to the atmosphere. There is a strong emphasis on creativity in the kitchen, and it is safe to say that craftsmanship is held in high regard, as the ingredients are of the finest quality and sourced locally wherever possible. Narfeyrarstofa’s chefs prepare all ingredients from scratch, and the kitchen makes use of a powerful meat processor as local meat is prepared in different ways for the various dishes on the menu. From the restaurant there are views over Breiðafjörður bay’s “natural pantry”. Ingredients from there are on the table every day, exceptionally fresh. Blue mussels from Breiðafjörður are always on offer when in season. The menu also has a selection of hamburgers, proclaimed to be “the real deal”, “juicy” and “even better than búllaburgers” by our guests, who come back for them again and again! Our wine menu is unusually diverse and features specially selected wines of various types. The restaurant is in a two-storey house built in 1906 in the heart of Stykkishólmur, by the old church that towers over Aðalgata. There is room for 70 people indoors, and it’s also possible to sit outside when the weather’s nice. The atmosphere at Narfeyrarstofa is warm and welcoming, and the staff and the owners do everything they can to provide outstanding service to their guests.
