“really beatifull and cozy restaurant by the sea”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Everything was good, atmosphere, food, service and the view was a killer :)

The only reason i give such a low overall experience is because they allow smoking on the terrace where i had my lunch. Smoking in restaurants in Iceland is illegal and it sucks they allow this. Even have trays :(

“Great and cozy atmosphere!”

We went twice! All our menues were delicious. The fish was served with a refreshing salad and great pesto. An absolute must in Husavik.

“Lovely wooden interior and good burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Located right at the harbor front, there is this lovely small restaurant with an all wooden interior as if in an old boat. Serve both regular main courses and smaller dishes like soup and burgers. We had an Icelandic meat soup and a béarnaise burger. For me, this was one of the best burger is had in Iceland.
Service a bit too impersonal for me.

“Good food and great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Friendly staff, free Wifi and good food. We came back a second time on our trip to Husavik. Fresh fish every day on the menu. The location is the best part. Gamli Baukur faces the harbour and the whale watching boats, and the atmosphere is really nice. Would recommend it.

“Great atmosphere and reasonably-priced food (for Iceland)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We ate here two nights during our stay in Husavik. The fish was excellent and fresh. Very well prepared and presented. Fun atmosphere with locals and tourists alike. Great local beer!
