My wife and I stopped for a pit stop. We both ordered cappuccino and my wife got a slice of pie. The wait staff was all very friendly. They brought us water and chocolates. The cappuccino was very good, the pie was very good as well. We enjoyed our visit in everyday.
Another bonus. It was very clean with nice bathrooms. There was a gift shop with several tours/ displays. My only wish was that I was hungry for lunch. The food looked very good but I was ready for lunch.

Great old warehouse which has been renovated into a visitor centre and restaurant. The pasta with lobster tails was tastefull but they should have used warm plates so that your diner stays warm during the winter months! Overall recommended!

Thank you so much for this review, specially mentioning the importance of warming the plates. We are constantly reminding our staff to warm the plates. At the moment we don´t have a warming cupboard - so they have to warm them under hot water - and unfortunatly they too often forget (well thats what they say). We are building an extension enlarging the kitchen and one of the first new things we will put in there is a warming unit for dishes. I have printed your remark enlarging the font and will hang it up in the kitchen. All in good humor though because our staff is very good and attentive. Hope you are enjoying these wonderful winter days in Iceland. The sky tonight is flaming red.

We had only a week in Borgarnes and wish that we had found this restaurant sooner. We liked it so much we went back a second time. Excellent food and service both times. It is also great that it is open every day all year round. The Settlement Centre shop and exhibitions downstairs are also worth a visit.

Grandparents,parents and teenagerson loved this place. A restaurant full of history. While eating you may also enjoy looking at all the wellmade woodencarvings in the room/house. Great service. Extremely good homemade food. Whether you choose fish, meat or something else, you can look forward to a very good meal. By the way, they`ve got a fantastic vegetable lasagna!.
