A place with warm atmosphere and delicious dishes. Not much seafood on the menu but the ones they have are really great. The waitresses are very friendly. High prices, yet 5 star it is.

This restaurant is a solid lunch option. It’s nothing fancy and the staff is nice. We had a small pizza with garlic bread. The sauce on the pizza was just tomato sauce (no herbs) so it was pretty bland, but the garlic bread (really a...More

Recently had dinner and drinks at this restaurant on a nice sunny July evening. The outside area atmosphere is very nice and the location is convenient if you are staying in town. Service and food was decent as well.

The menu is varied and meets the needs of everyone. There is two floors of dining, and fish is the main focus. There are nice views of the harbor and mountainins.

Ended up visiting this place two nights in a row. Good choice of food and relatively good value - for Iceland! Very enjoyable. Only criticism was that one meal was not piping hot but this was instantly sorted. Very welcoming resturant & can thoroughly recommend.

Yes we do. There is a Tofu dish and we make vegetable patties which are served with rice and different sorts of vegetables. Then there are different soups, depending on the daily offer like vegan tomato soup or mushroom soup.

Cozy family owned restaurant offering steaks, seafood, pizza, pasta or burgers made with passion. Our food is not off the shelf, but homemade from scratch. We offer typical icelandic dishes like lamb and cod or catfish in a fresh, modern style. In the summer time it is great to sit outside in our plaza and enjoy delicious food, snacks and cocktails. Housed in one of the oldest buildings in Husavik and in the city centre you can't miss us.
