Not many places open during the winter of our backpacking trip. We waited for this place to open hoping they would have descent food. We were not disappointed! The lady that took our order was a very sweet and friendly woman. She was professional and helpful, service with a smile. I ordered the fiskisoupa (fish soup) and a ham and cheese Sandwich. There was also free coffee and water. The soup was one of the best soups I've ever had. It was creamy, tasty and very well seasoned. Ive been home a week now and am still thinking about that soup! lol Prices were very reasonable by Icelandic standards. My friend had the mushroom soup and she said it was incredible. Also had very clean restrooms. I highly recommend you stop here and try the soups.

Meistarinn

Meistarinn is very well known for their special way of deep frying the hot dogs, and serve it with different sauces than any other hot dog stand in Iceland. You must try this when you visit Grundarfjordur.

Reviewed By Christel R - Atlanta, Georgia

I luckily found this stand on my last day in Grundarfjordur. I had been in Iceland for three days and had yet to try their famous hot dogs and I am so glad I found this stand. My daughter and I absolutely LOVED them! The nice lady at the stand asked me what I wanted on it and I told her to put whatever normally goes on their hotdogs and she added fried AND fresh onions and also ketchup and pylsusinnep, which is a sweet brown sauce that is to die for. Hand down, best hot dog I've ever had and my daughter agrees with this statement.

Bjargarsteinn mathus

On Snaefellsnes peninsula, in the harbour area of Grundarfjördur town, stands a small house named Bjargarsteinn. The house was transported 140 kilometers from Akranes town to its current location, where it has a new role as a restaurant. Bjargarsteinn's menu caters to both local and international taste buds and will include seasonal dishes that are bound to be a delicious treat for all food connoisseurs.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Framnes in May 2017.
We had planned to eat there as well, but their restaurant was closed at the time of our stay. The hotel manager suggested that we'd have dinner at Bjargarsteinn Mathus instead ; and what an excellent suggestion that proved to be !
The restaurant is in a vintage house, and has a very homely feel to it.
We were served promptly by a very efficent and friendly waitress dressed in clothes of the period.
The menu is varied. I had the mussels and my husband had the Bla fisk (Blue fish). The dishes were beautifully presented, and the food was a veritable treat for our palates.
We really enjoyed our dinner here and can highly recommend this restaurant when you are in the neighbourhood !!!

Laki Tours

Reviewed By stevehutch - Berkhamsted, United Kingdom

We stopped here after whale watching on two successive days and the food was good both times, A set menu of soup and bread with a variety of salads to follow some with meat. Both adequate and reasonably priced.
Although situated close to the quay if the boat sails from the next town this cafe is largely isolated.
