Had a most enjoyable meal here. As previous reviews have said, not much choice, but all the better for it in my opinion. Really tasty food in a warm and relaxed setting. I had chicken breast with gorgeous caramelized sweet potatoes and mushroom risotto. My partner had the fish soup, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Would definitely go again but unfortunately we only had one night in Stykkisholmur.

Best fish soup ever. Picturesque location by the harbour. Friendly and unpretentious atmosphere and service. Not stuffy like the other fancy place in town (you know who you are).

We ate here while waiting for the Ferry Baldur. It is a very nice little place on the harbour. The fish soup here was spectacular. Very highly recommended!

Nice view, with also a terrace for good weather. I liked very much the fish soup, so fresh! Didn't try the desserts, seemed nice but couldn't eat more. Very attentive service.

This restaurant has a scenic view on the waterfront in Stykkisholmur. We found the food in this restaurant to be quite tasty. My wife has several food allergies and the staff went out of their way to make sure she was taken care of without a problem. Even though the menu was a bit limited, we were able to leave the restaurant satisfied after a delicious meal (starter: smoked salmon plate, main meal: mussels with garlic,chili peppers, white wine, butter & onion, dessert: chocolate cake with shaved chocolate). As we found true throughout our travels in Iceland, the food at the restaurants is quite expensive. A similar meal in America, would cost on average, about half of what it costs in Iceland.
