We were curious about the Nordic House. Actually there is very little to see unless you are attending an event like a play or recital. We had a good lunch while there was a rehearsal.

Great Nordic buffet with limited but premium options inkl. Mashed potato with cod, butternut squash soup, different salats made from bulgur and beetroot, homemade bread, pesto and humus. 129kr/person. Superb.

Smakka is located inside of Nordic House, ambient is pleasant, very Illuminated and spacious. I've tried their Sutarday brunch manu with lots of freshly made vegan and vegetarian dishes, chia seed puding and banana pancakes for desert. Everything was tasty.

I came across this venue accidentally, whilst walking in Torshavn, a port on a cruise we were on. Smakka is located in the Nordic House and has many vegan options, mostly organic as a lunchtime buffet, which included salads with vegan dressings, houmous, vegan pesto...More

As the café is set at Norðurlandahúsið, it is also used when there are conferences, concerts and exhibitions. Unfortunately they aren't able to serve many customers quickly. However, the food is really good - so just stay away during the peak hours ;)

The Nordic House provides a beautiful, spacious, peaceful environment to enjoy a beverage or a brunch. We had milkshakes and coconut macaroons all freshly made and delicious.

Cultural building were everybody can meet. After visiting a concert there we had a good cup of coffee and some cake. The people were helpful when we asked for the timetable of the bus.

Came for lunch. Excellent vegetarian fare, but small portions (I am a petite woman and was still hungry after my $13 small bowl of soup and tiny piece of bread; perhaps should have sprung the extra $6 for the heartier lunch platter).

The drinks were good, however, nothing worth going out of your way for. The staff was not very knowledgeable and what food they had not run out of was very sub-par.

This cafe is conveniently located if you are attending a performance or exhibit at the Nordic House. Otherwise, it is a bit out of the way and requires a car. The dining area could be kept a bit cleaner, but the Rhubarb Tart was outstanding....More
