We ate lunch at Borgin and had a trio of herring, plokkfish stew, and sauteed cod. All were very good. The hering was the highlight for us the cod with a lobster cream sauce was outsranding. A great out of the way restaurant.

We found this restaurant through Tripadvisor. The place is very cosy. We have eaten whale, horse and seabirds and they were great! Portions are huge and the host very nice. Recommended. Prices in line with Icelandic ones.

We had a two great dishes - smoked guillemot and whale. The menu appears to be inspired by the food of Iceland, but cooked to the modern high standards now expected. Wonderful service and good atmosphere.

Cozy family restaurant with a great variety of seafood and other local specialty. Great ocean view from the retro styled dining hall. One of the best seafood restaurants in Iceland.
