We spend several days in Isafjordur and probably tried all the local restaurants. The Edinborg was the unchallenged low point. The service was haphazard. I spotted one of the waiters sneaking drinks behind the bar. The food was really awful. Tough steak. Allergy-inducing soup (suggesting MSG).

I must compliment the two seafood dishes we tried out durung our recent visit to Isafjordur. Isafjordur definitely boast better quality of fresh seafood than most other places in Iceland where it has become increasingly difficult to get seafood fresh from the ocean. We visited Edinborg twice, enjoyed the access to free wi-fi and a chance to charge our phones etc;) as we were staying in a tent for seeral nights. The fishskillet was served really hot, three types of fish sizzling but cooked perfectly. The days catch was in both cases one of the three and served in similar fashion but on a plate. We each had a glass of house white but it was not good. There were options available For the children that were not mentioned on the menu, grilled sandwich with ham and cheese and a hamburger/cheeseburger. Both were overpriced and the fries were not good, appeared to be fried under insufficient temperature. Waitress said something about thise not being the fries they normally serve. The children also enjoyed the small playarea set up in the restaurant. There is good space for a group of 10 people or even more, the restaurant shares location with the touristinfo bureau and other establishments. The joint restrooms were not Serviced properly.
