This is a very small fishing village, so there are few restaurant options, and I think we tried the two nicest. Note that even in early June these two restaurants got pretty busy because the whole Peninsula is starting to get overrun with tourists. In...More

We had a lovely dinner of muscles, fish and shrimp over spaghetti. The bread with garlic butter and salt was a nice start. We enjoyed a piece of carrot cake, and a tasty hot chocolate cake with ice cream. Yum. Good drinks and pleasant service.

We both enjoyed our meal. Although fully occupied we were asked to wait as a table would soon be vacant, which it was, albeit at the bottom of the stairs. The staff were pleasant and attentive, the ambiance was good and as I said, we...More

Description
Narfeyrarstofa restaurant and café is the oldest operating restaurant in Stykkishólmur. It’s a family business and is open all year round. Narfeyrarstofa’s menu features inventive dishes served artfully in the beautiful surroundings of the restaurant, where utterly charming views from the premises bring life to the atmosphere. There is a strong emphasis on creativity in the kitchen, and it is safe to say that craftsmanship is held in high regard, as the ingredients are of the finest quality and sourced locally wherever possible. Narfeyrarstofa’s chefs prepare all ingredients from scratch, and the kitchen makes use of a powerful meat processor as local meat is prepared in different ways for the various dishes on the menu. From the restaurant there are views over Breiðafjörður bay’s “natural pantry”. Ingredients from there are on the table every day, exceptionally fresh. Blue mussels from Breiðafjörður are always on offer when in season. The menu also has a selection of hamburgers, proclaimed to be “the real deal”, “juicy” and “even better than búllaburgers” by our guests, who come back for them again and again! Our wine menu is unusually diverse and features specially selected wines of various types. The restaurant is in a two-storey house built in 1906 in the heart of Stykkishólmur, by the old church that towers over Aðalgata. There is room for 70 people indoors, and it’s also possible to sit outside when the weather’s nice. The atmosphere at Narfeyrarstofa is warm and welcoming, and the staff and the owners do everything they can to provide outstanding service to their guests.
