“Exceeded all expectations!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We stopped here for dinner when staying in Hella. We did not expect much from this small area or when we walked in and saw what it looked like, but it exceeded all expectations! I had a delicious chicken dish with local ingredients and perfectly prepared chicken. It was a wonderful surprise and I would certainly return if I am in this area again.

“Good food in Hella”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

In such a small place we had pretty low expections. Don't be put off by the outside. Pleasantly surprised by Arhus in Hella.
Food was tasty, healthy and fresh. Lovely service with great local knowledge from the staff about the surrounding area - treks etc.
Would recommend this place.

“Great food, especially the fish”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

The restaurant is exactly what you'd expect from the outside; not pretentious at all, just really good food and friendly staff. The fish dishes in particular were delicious, and all pretty good value.

“Little Surprise!”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

By far one of the most pleasant meals we had on Iceland! Having tried different types of Icelandic cuisine we`ve decided to go for something simple this time. We ordered a salad, a pizza and a calzone- they were all delicious and came in huge portion - very rare in Iceland. Definitely worth visiting if you pop by Hella.
