  • A good museum about one of Iceland's most famous authers. Tells you a lot about life in this area in the old times. We also had lunch there and it was quite good.  more »

  • Dinner last night was fantastic! Lamb soup and Arctic char smoked and steamed in garlic butter and white wine. Friends had the lamb and loved it. The exhibit is informative and totally professional. All staff was fantastic.
  • The food here is amazing. Not your ordinary Icelandic burger-and-cod place. Their steamed Arctic Char is super soft, well seasoned and tasty. The fish stew is more like a casserole but was nice too. Staff is super friendly and the view out to sea is lovely.
  • Went for the breakfast buffet, which was packed with great options. The museum was a surprise & highly enjoyed walking thru & learning about the local history.
  • The steamed Arctic Char is tasty! I have to say the food is actually better than I thought, especially there're not many choices around. But it's actually great! (清蒸北極紅點鮭好吃,強力推薦!)
  • Food is tasty. The building has a fancy modern design from the outside. I only was in the restaurant as the museum is not free and wasn't sure whether I would like it. I'm spoiled by London's free museums. People are friendly though.
