Stopped for lunch while touring the area in early February. The service was as warm and welcoming as the atmosphere. Food was delicious! Unfortunately, too much to partake in dessert as well which looked exquisite! So glad we found ourselves passing through as lunch time!

It doesn't really matter if you order the fish of the day or the turkey club sandwich or the luxurious burger on menu. It's all superb food obviously made from top raw material. Cannot over reccomend 'Hendur í Höfn'
