The restaurant Narfeyrarstofa is located in a very old house in the heart of the town Stykkishólmur on the Snæfellsnes peninsula, West Iceland. There are no written records which state excactly the construction year of the house Narfeyarhús. But it was built for Mrs. Málfríður Möller, chemist Möller’s widow in the years of 1901-1906 and has been used for all kinds of activities since then.
In 1999 the coffee house Narfeyrarstofa opened in the house but in the spring of 2001 the present owners
Steinunn Helgadóttir and the chef Sæþór H. Þorbergsson bought it and made remarkable changes. Both floors was turned into an elegant gourmet restaurant. The menu is filled with unique seafood dishes like our well known fish soup, scallops, cod, monkfish and lobster but also smoked guillemot, pasta and meat. We offer vegan dishes, made from scratch in our kitcen.
All this you can enjoy in a warm, romantic and cosy atmosphere with a view over Stykkishólm’s harbour. Stykkishólmur is an excellent place for all kinds of exciting excursions around the beautiful Snæfellsnes peninsula. It is ideal to go sailing among the islands of Breiðafjörður bay to enjoy the natural beauty and amazing wild life. Afterwards we welcome you to have a gourmet meal at Narfeyrarstofa.
Cooperation between local producers of tableware, fishermen and farmer in the neighbourhood is important. The range of courses on the menu is based on the ideology of local wonderful food, wether it is food like kelp, mussels, lambmeat or fish.
Narfeyrarstofa runs catering services and in the past royals as well as international artists and foreign chefs have enjoyed our catering menu which is always based on local food.
