Our coffee was cold as a result of a problem with the machine. Staff were very apologetic and soon brought hot coffee with some delicious chocolate truffles. A relaxed place to sit and catch up with emails.

Reviewed By Dianne D - Tulsa, Oklahoma

We are staying at the Hotel Horn which is lovely. They have a dining agreement with Vid Pollin. We are here on a self drive package. When we went for our first dinner it got confusing very quickly. They gave us their menu which looked lovely. Then when they found out we had prepaid they told us we could not eat off the menu and that we had to eat "what the chef chose for us." We were offered lamb and seafood soup. We can't eat lamb due to its richness. So they did offer a fish. We were told we could have only an appetizer and entree. And that when we came back the next night we could have an entree and dessert. But we couldn't have dessert that night.
Then they served sour dough bread that the chef said I couldn't eat due to my nut allergy. Hmmmm! Nuts in sourdough!?! We asked what kind of nuts and they came back and said, "mixed!?" Waaah?! Well I was hungry and decided to eat it anyway and good news is that I didn't die!!! Yay! No nuts.
Also it took an hour to get our food. Ugh! I know it's Europe folks but in the land of adventure travel waiting an hour is torture.
We were scheduled to go back the next two nights and decided we couldn't take any more torture. So we got our money back and went to Hamraborg across from the Horn. Nothing fancy but it did the job.

Thai Koon

Reviewed By Elspeth B

Sadly the restaurant we wanted to visit was full, so ended up here. Situated in a small mall next to a supermarket. After loads of fish we thought this might be nice change of cuisine, but were underwhelmed. This is more a takeaway with some basic tables . If you want to eat in. There was a choice of shrimp tempura, pork green curry, chicken dish and noodles. I had noodles with shrimp partner noodles with pork. Both were OK. We also had a couple of small beers. Our bill was KR 5180, at the time of writing approx £33.00. However place seemed popular with the locals. Don't know how they can afford it.

Tjoruhusid

Tjoruhusið is a fish restaurant in Isafjorður, Iceland. We only serve whatever&apos;s fresh out of the ocean on a given day, so there&apos;s no menu to speak of, but during high season we usually offer a buffet of everything good for dinner, while lunch tends to be a la carte. <br><br>For dinner, we generally do two separate seatings, at 7pm and 9pm, although we try to be flexible if possible. Do note that we are for the most part closed during wintertime (from early November &apos;til Easter, usually), and then that our openings in the early spring months tend to be sporadic. <br><br>We advise anyone intending to dine with us to call ahead to ensure we are open. Any special needs (lactose/gluten/etc) should be noted in advance. <br><br>Tjoruhusið does not operate a Reykjavik location and is not at all affiliated with any Reykjavik restaurant, regardless of what some of them might be claiming.

We went for lunch when our ship was in port. I did contact them beforehand about a reservation which I recommend. They were super busy but extremely nice and the food was fantastic. I don't especially like soup but the one they served--a delicious tomato based, creamy langoustine (Norwegian lobster) bisque--had me eating every bite. My husband was in heaven! Main courses in the buffet was cod and plaice in three different sauces. Some of the best fish dishes I've ever had. The bread was good. Even the WATER tasted good--pure Icelandic water is great. The coffee was strong and good. In fact everything we ate gets top marks.

Edinborg Bistro

Reviewed By CDavid212 - New York City, New York

The half portion of lamb soup to start was perfection, followed by a lobster and shrimp salad. The portions are on the large side, so we found half portions perfect. Their margaritas were fresh and delicious (not pre-mixed), and we loved the wit and warmth of the staff. Loved this restaurant!

Braedraborg Cafe

Reviewed By Jakob-Pall - Reykjavik, Iceland

My friend and I recently were passing by in Isafjordur town and by total coincidence discovered this charming original Café bar.
It was really pleasing to relax there for a while and enjoy their very good double "Americano" coffee (actually double expresso with a water to taste) with slice of carrot cake.
Yea, why not a taste of wine to accompany my friend's beer still to finish before continuing our journey among the AMAZING Westfjords!

Quaint bistro with original framed drawings on the walls. Ordered the fish special, haddock prepared with tomatoes, red peppers, grapes, mushrooms with a sweetened sauce. Sides of small white potatos, green salad came with. Fish was perfectly cooked. My companion had the ribeye burger - tender and delicious with a side of fries and green salad. The meal was so filling, I ordered dessert, meringue cake, as take out to enjoy with coffee in the morning.

Hamraborg

Reviewed By CaptCanuck - Ottawa, Canada

I dropped in to Hamraborg one morning in mid October 2016 for breakfast.
When I came in, I i wasn't sure if they served breakfast - but when I asked, the gentleman working the counter happily offered to make me some bacon, eggs, sausage and toast. I also had a cup of coffee.
It was a delicious breakfast, and VERY well priced for Iceland. In fact, it was probably the best value of any meal i had in 2 weeks touring around Iceland.
So that alone - friendly service and great prices - would have been enough for me to score this business a 5/5.
But that wasn't all. After breakfast i was sitting at my table looking through my maps and guidebook trying to decide what I would do that day. Another gentleman working at the restaurant noticed, and came over and asked if he could help me plan my day.
Genuine, friendly and helpful people. After some discussion with the two gentlemen working the restaurant they gave me a great itinerary for the day - which i never would have found on my own and was one of my favourite days of the trip.
Travelling alone can be challenging at times, and it is meeting people like this that can really make a difference.
Thanks again guys, you are great ambassadors for your beautiful country!

Reviewed By ianBerkshire - Crowthorne, United Kingdom

We called into Kaffihus Bakarans for a coffee and cakes. Everyone was so friendly despite being very busy with three ships in the port. The coffees were excellent as were the pastries - highly recommended when you visit.
If you were staying in the are they have a great selection of bread and pastries - all of which looked mouth watering!
