That was one of the most delicious restraint meals I've ever had in a restraint. The trendy decor is lovely nice atmosphere with low lighting and great backround music. Feels more like an upscale Edinburgh boutique bar than a wee fishing village in rural iceland....More

This is a really charming restaurant, decorated in a nautical theme and overlooking the harbor. My husband had the fish burger which he enjoyed, though he found it a bit underseasoned, and I had the barley risotto with scallops, which I thought was excellent. I...More

Nice restaurant right on the harbor. Small and busy, but good service. Small like our table of 2 was 6" from tables of two on either side. But we had great conversations with our neighbors.

This little place is truly a gem. We were served the best crab and seafood soup we ever imagined. The accompanying bread and butter was to die for. Then the bouillabaisse was perfect. If we could only have stayed in town another day, we would...More
