“Don't Miss The Fish!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

On our arrival..this was the only place open to eat. What a quaint restaurant!!! Really nice decor..nothing fancy..no table clothes but really nice. Everyone ordered something different and everything was done to perfection. All of the food was delicious! The fish was to die for..prepared expertly and it about melted in your mouth. Prices were reasonable! The servings are huge..some of us had to just share an order so as not to waste any of the food! This little restaurant is a gem in the center of this wonderful little town.

“Decent burgers, fries too salty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

This was the only restaurant open when we arrived in Stykkisholmur very hungry after a long day in the peninsula. The restaurant was quaint, and filled with locals. We both ordered burgers (around 1500 ISK/each if I recall properly) and thought that they were pretty good, and enjoyed the variety of "creative burgers" on offer. However, for us, the fries were WAY too salty (the seasoning was excessive), which was a bit disappointing. The restaurant satisfied our hunger pangs, but it was nothing out of this world (although choices for restaurants in this small town are rather limited!).

“One of the best meals you can get outside of Reykjavik”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

Travelling Iceland in the "off season" we were VERY lucky to find this place open for us one night, after a hard day's travelling around Snaefellnes Peninsula.

The atmosphere is cosy, food is top notch (I had the veal steak, fish of the day reportedly wonderful) as well as being great value, plus the staff are very friendly too!

Perhaps it was just such a relief to find somewhere that wasn't a truck stop / petrol station in Iceland's winter season. Regardless, I cannot fault Narfeyrarstofa, and I would definitely return.

“Great find - delicious home-made chicken soup - and reasonably-priced too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

I was on a driving trip and drove up to Stykkisholmur. Being lunchtime I thought I'd find somewhere in town and was extremely pleased to find this little place. It's in a historic building and is very quaint and cosy inside (great to get out of the rain!). I ordered a chicken soup which was home-made and delicious, accompanied with lots of home-made bread. Good value too. Highly recommend stopping in here!
