Went to Kaffivagninn today for lunch and tried the “Fishpan” with cod and shrimps. It tasted very well and it’s nice to sit there with the view over the harbour.

Read reviews about this place and decided we just had to try it. It did not disappoint. I had the Arctic Char and it was fantastic. This is definitely a place I’d return when back in the city.
