Description: Narfeyrarstofa restaurant and café is the oldest operating restaurant in Stykkishólmur. It’s a family business and is open all year round. Narfeyrarstofa’s menu features inventive dishes served artfully in the beautiful surroundings of the restaurant, where utterly charming views from the premises bring life to the atmosphere. There is a strong emphasis on creativity in the kitchen, and it is safe to say that craftsmanship is held in high regard, as the ingredients are of the finest quality and sourced locally wherever possible. Narfeyrarstofa’s chefs prepare all ingredients from scratch, and the kitchen makes use of a powerful meat processor as local meat is prepared in different ways for the various dishes on the menu. From the restaurant there are views over Breiðafjörður bay’s “natural pantry”. Ingredients from there are on the table every day, exceptionally fresh. Blue mussels from Breiðafjörður are always on offer when in season. The menu also has a selection of hamburgers, proclaimed to be “the real deal”, “juicy” and “even better than búllaburgers” by our guests, who come back for them again and again! Our wine menu is unusually diverse and features specially selected wines of various types. The restaurant is in a two-storey house built in 1906 in the heart of Stykkishólmur, by the old church that towers over Aðalgata. There is room for 70 people indoors, and it’s also possible to sit outside when the weather’s nice. The atmosphere at Narfeyrarstofa is warm and welcoming, and the staff and the owners do everything they can to provide outstanding service to their guests.

“Don't Miss The Fish!!!”
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”
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!).
