Really a cosy family run restaurant located at the harbour. Great fish, the Char burger is recommendable. The soup of the day was also very good. If you enjoy the whalesafari with North Sailing, you get 10% off if you have your ticket.

We stopped here for dinner in late May. No wait and happy to have a good solid meal. I enjoyed a tasty burger and my husband loved his Arctic char burger. Try the tiramisu made from Skyr (Icelandic yogurt) for dessert!

This is a nice little place for a quick bite or coffee after your whale watching experience. It can get chilly out there and is nice to grab a cup of something warm after :)
