We went there for a dinner and mainly to eat local. We ordered the fish of the day and the salted cod. Both meals were delicious and the fish was fresh. You can taste that! The staff were friendly and the prices were moderate.

Superb service and the boys in our tour party thoroughly enjoyed their burger and chips. If you want a good start to your day - have a meal at this pleasant restaurant. The service is good and the staff are friendly.

We (two couples) went to Salthusid for dinner on a regular Friday night and this place completely exceeded our expectations, and it did so in so many ways. The atmosphere was very relaxed. The owner himself was cooking the meals, which is nice to know...More
