Eating out in Torshavn offers fairly limited choice between the expensive (but generally excellent) and the takeaway; there is not much inbetween. Located on the 1st floor of a hotel in the centre of town near the port it's easy to find. The menu is pleasingly brief. The food was delicious, and faultlessly prepared. Staff helpful and friendly. Decor is... More

10 people in Torshavn. Intersting litle town on a small island (many Islands). We arrived. Fixed menu, no choice of wines. One white and one red. How is that possible with a big wine cellar?? Young people, no service. Fish Soul, tasted better, ok tenderloin and fresh fruit for dessert (On The Islands). There are so many good fishes in... More

Got a booking on the early sitting (6.00pm) for the well advertised Tuesday evening seafood buffet. The selection of starters and mains was excellent and of course with a buffet you can always go back for more of what you particularly like and never leave hungry. I liked the large whole langoustine and tempura white fish with sweet chilli dressing,... More

The food was good. The staff was confused, forgot about two starters at our table. And then there was also a confusion with main course. But the food in general was tasty.

I dined at the Restaurant Hafnia on a night of a prix fixe menu. Three course, all superb. Lobster soup, lamb, and a brownie. But these course were gourmet. Served as if it were a tasting menu with appropriate explanations. The atmosphere is lovely. The wait staff is knowledgable, friendly, and demure. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Make reservations.

Staying elsewhere but relatively few places open on Sunday evening in April. Busy with a large group (a choir from Iceland) so we were fitted in to small area. Main course of beef acceptable rather than delicious, but soup and dessert really good. Pleasant setting.

A brilliantly welcoming receptionist encouraged us by good service and showing us the menu we asked to see despite our differing languages.. On arrival in the dining area the atmosphere was perfect, the fish was to die for and the service excellent. The plates of food were most attractive and the whole experience was a n ideal compliment to our... More

Had 3 courses and coffee. They started with a delicious appetizer. Wonderful local salmon as a starter, lamb for main and a single scoop of ice for dessert. The lamb was only tender for the 2/3 of the meat and the dessert with too much grained white chocolate giving a too dry taste on palate despite coffee. The service were... More

Staying in the same hotel, we have our breakfast here. The hotel is not fully occupied; most items will be gone by 8.45. It's Scandinavian breakfast style - bacon, hash brown, beans, sausage, omlette and egg. Wished they serve meatballs. Coffee was nice. Over dinner we had seafood christmas buffet that includes a dessert. The bill came to about 350... More

Saturday evening with friends. Four courses meny is not very good. Halibut fish was tasteless and meat was too raw. Only thing which was good were cheese. Waitress was too young and not very professional. Food was too expensive compare the level of food. Truly disappointing experience.
