We ate here both days that we were in town. Service was excellent both times. The food was excellent, we enjoyed the soup, we enjoyed the pizza, we enjoyed an enormous grilled chicken salad, and french fries! Highly recommend Salka!

We ended up eating here both nights that we stayed in Husavik. Funny enough, two totally different experiences. Both nights were busy, that said we got seated immediately both times with a party of two. Both nights the food was amazing. They do have a...More

We were planning a meal in Husavik and we needed to choose between 2 competitors. Salka won, as they had the menu outside and we could see the options and the proces before we got inside. Simple, but the other place didn't have it. Restaurant...More

We orded the Salka burger. Very tasty and I highly recommend it. Great food, fast service and Icelandic prizes. Go here if you want to eat after the Whale watching tour as you'll get a discount.

The service was very nice, welcoming and attentive. The food (we had puffin as starter, then arctic char and club sandwich) was very good and tasty. Surprisingly the food was served rather quickly even though the restaurant was busy. Would certainly recommend a visit. They...More

Yes we do. There is a Tofu dish and we make vegetable patties which are served with rice and different sorts of vegetables. Then there are different soups, depending on the daily offer like vegan tomato soup or mushroom soup.

Cozy family owned restaurant offering steaks, seafood, pizza, pasta or burgers made with passion. Our food is not off the shelf, but homemade from scratch. We offer typical icelandic dishes like lamb and cod or catfish in a fresh, modern style. In the summer time it is great to sit outside in our plaza and enjoy delicious food, snacks and cocktails. Housed in one of the oldest buildings in Husavik and in the city centre you can't miss us.
