We went there as a group of friends, we had some fish and were all very satisfied. The wine was good and the waitresses were pleasant. Don't get the shark, it was as disgusting as the waitress said it would be !

This was recommended by a local artist. We had booked an early meal as we were advised it would be busy. It was not far from our hotel but otherwise it is very much off the beaten track. Very poor welcome - draughty table next to a doorway. The waitress gave us a menu, did not offer to help us in anyway with explanation of some of the dishes. My wife had herring started - there being no indication it was mostly uncooked on the menu. I had minke whale which was good. Main course was cold, vegetables so much a la dente that they were raw. We were so disappointed we did not order a sweet but had cold coffee. Then to crown matters the bill was wrong. The service was disastrously slow and the place was nearly empty. Would not recommend.

Excellent food, good service, reasonable prices and a really nice place.
The only minus: They have whale on their menu and I´m against whaling.

A little off the beaten path but accessible by walking. Ask for a table on the porch as the first room is somewhat crowded. Good lamb and seafood. We wish they didn't offer dishes of animals that are so beautiful to observe in the natural setting.

We had smoked puffin, whale sashimi, whale roasted, horse tenderloin, and cod bacalao - all excellent. Also hakarl to start (a very Icelandic item), which is fine when washed down with brennervin and which you only need to try once. Cozy ambiance and great service. Highly recommend the experience!
