Restaurant Hafnia is supposedly one of the better restaurants in Torshavn. That might be, but I would not recommend you go there on a Sunday. Sunday has a fixed dinner, which, obviously limits choice. We had hoped for an evening out with good food and ditto wine. Instead, we were out of the door in 50 minutes. The restaurant was... More

We had dinner at the Hafna restaurant. Both of us a fish dish: cod and monkfish. Both perfectly fine prepared, with a lot of extra tasts on the plate (some fresh greens, sauces, salads). Just fine. The ambiance of the restaurant is supposed to be "upscale", at least for Torshavn. Judged by the way they prepare the tables, the room,... More

We went there because we saw good reviews about it and the price seemed reasonable for Faroes and its location. We were not disappointed in the least.Once you arrive it is warm and welcoming inside, you leave your coats at a wardrobe/closet and then someone shows you to your table. It is very nicely decorated, Faroese landscape- themed. We asked... More

We went to the restaurant for a dinner. We talked with the local staff, which recommended to go for the local dishes (sea food) instead of the beef, as this is certainly not coming from the local farms. The welcoming from the kitchen was done with local ham and cheese. We had afterwards two courses with a starter with fish... More

While there were numerous dishes on the fish buffet, only that labeled "Norway lobster", the soup and the pickled herring were really good. For us, the hot dishes were overcooked and tasteless.

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.
