The fish of the day, salmon, was cooked to perfection. Even though the place looked hip and trendy, we felt very welcome in our traveller outfits. As in most places we’ve visited in Iceland, still water was offered for free.

My husband and I went for an early dinner in Sjavarborg restaurant in May 2017.
The restaurant is located on the top floor of the Islandic Seal Center in Hvammstangi, but has a separate entrance at the side of the building.

The restaurant has a nice and modern decor, with a nice view of the harbour.
We ordered the "Ugly burgers" with fries. I'm not sure why they call them that: they sure tasted very good. The only strange-looking thing were the curly fries.

Anyway : big portions, quick and friendly service, a reasonable price for Icelandic standards; what more can you ask for ?

It was quiet when we went but the location is stunning and the food matches the background well worth a short diversion from the ring road. I had salmon and it was sizeable and delicious

We found the restaurant to be a classy modern venue. The menu was small but included both seafood and red meat, and as well as vegan/vego options. Not sure if it has a bigger selection during summer. We had chilli prawns (entree size) and seafood soup. Nice spot. Tasty, elegant experience. We think the restaurant overlooks the harbour but as we only went in the dark, we are not sure. Reasonably priced, but we're talking about Icelandic prices which is expensive (at least compared to Sydney).
