A must if you can afford it. Great food for meat eaters, shoulder of lamb will make me long for a return visit.

We made an early evening reservation so were one of the few couples at the restaurant and were delighted with the three course meal we chose - langoustine bisque, lamb shoulder, and rhubarb compote. Bread came out early while we awaited the first course. The soup was very flavorful, the lamb was tender, and the rhubarb dessert was the perfect balance of sweetness at the end the meal. Overall, a memorable meal and worth the reservation.

On our recent visit to Torshavn, we ate at Barbara Fish House, Katrina Christiansen, and Aarstova. While the other restaurants were good, Aarstova was a cut above for both food and service. We had the 3 course dinner with wine pairing. We both chose the smoked haddock to start and the lamb shoulder as our main. The food was awesome. The lamb was very tender and flavourful. The various flavours worked well together. The wines were well paired and generously poured. A highlight for us was our server Rakul, an engaging young woman who was both attentive and informative. We also loved our table: we were on the top floor,near an open window, in a spot that felt very private. We have eaten at many top restaurants over the years, and for us this meal will rank among our most memorable.

I ate here with a friend in May, 2018. The hotel called ahead and we were told it would be at least a one hour wait. We happened to poke our heads in just in case, and found a nearly empty restaurant that seated us immediately. Strange. We selected the three course menu and absolutely loved the food. The only dish I remember was smoked haddock as the menu has changed since we dined there. Highly recommended for a splurge.
