We chose the restaurant on recommendation and we were not disappointed. We chose the long-haired lamb and it tasted really good. The meat was so tender that we never needed the knife. Clearly the best meal we got in the Faroe Islands.

Very good food, service and atmosphere. High market restaurant but the money paid is noticeable in the quality of the food. The langoustine bisque and lamb shoulder were some of the best meals I have ever had.
