Well worth a visit. Good food, nice staff, good bartender. A bit pricy on the drinks but the food was fresh and well prepered. The waiter didnt know enough about the wines but everything else was fine.

Very nice place with a mixture of new and old fashioned interior. Definetly the best steak in town. I got the tomahawk steak. Very delicious and taste. A bit expensive place, but in my opinion worth the money.

We had a starter - Salmon With Asparagus - because we were not that hungry that evening. The Next day we had 5 different cheeses at lunchtime. Both meals were really good, so this is our number one of the restaurants we visited in Torshavn.

On a rainy night first arriving in the Faroes found the Tarv. The lamb was grilled to perfection, the salmon succulent, and the sides (extra) all complemented the excellent food.

Place was nice, but expensive and menu a bit boring. I had the salmon, which was perfectly done, but you had to choose side dishes for it and the choices was few and not very creative. For example; you chose what sauce you wanted, but...More
