So good! I loved the home baked bread with that decadent Icelandic freshly churn butter! We love their stews and the freshly caught blue mussels. They also have some great beer on tap. Looks to be a family run business, friendly and quick service. Great for families and couples. Not sure when we can come back to this area but... More

Wonderful small restaurant in the downtown area of Stykkisholmur (such as it is; not really much there). My wife and I each ordered a glass of wine,which we both enjoyed with a complimentary tray of dinner rolls, garlic butter, cracked pepper and two kinds of Icelandic sea salt... one the pure white flake and the other smoked. The rolls with... More

We only ate burgers (with lamb and so on) but they were really really god. We didn't have time to come back for something else. Nice service. Nothing to complain :)

Saw the reviews and decided to try the food here as it was just beside our hotel. Ordered the scallops, fish soup, burger and cod fish. The fish soup and scallops were really delicious! The burger and cod fish were just average western cuisine.

This is quite a small restaurant, so it can be busy, but despite this the staff are very attentive and efficient. The food is very good, with truly outstanding seafood, and the lamb is just as good. We enjoyed our meals so much that we returned for a second night.

While on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula in the end of October, we were cold and wet, looking for a nice, warm dinner. We stumbled upon Narfeyrarstofa and couldn't have been more pleased! It was one of the best dinners during our two-week stay! Food: DIVINE. I can't even begin to describe to you how perfectly seasoned and cooked the scallops, fish,... More

We came to this place at the recommendation of a friend on our tour of the western part of Iceland, and were very impressed! It's in what must have been an old house, so the ambiance is warm and intimate. The food was amazing. Service was good, especially considering the late crush of people they accommodated. Chef came out to... More

Traveling through Iceland, we've realized that good food is few and far between, so this visit we did our research. We didn't realize that it requires a reservation to be seated at this cute and elegant place. The waitress greeted us when we walked in and was very nice, except we are unclear that we could wait in the back... More

We stopped for lunch as this was the only place we found around. I had the fish soup and it was delicious, full with fish goodness. My boyfriend had the burger, also good but could not beat the soup I think. I would go to this place every day if I could. The staff was very friendly and fast.

Thank Jenny R
