Restaurant

Open

All year

In Hólmur we have a small restaurant, called Fjósið. The place is rebuilt from an old cowhouse (Fjós translates to cowhouse in english). There we offer breakfast, light meals, coffee and cakes during the day and then dinner in the evening (might be better to book in advance). Open by agreement during the wintertime.

Our lodging did not have dinner available and they recommended the Jon Riki. The Chef had moved back from Reykjavík. The meal was great. All freshly prepared. The in-house beer options were a bonus. Highly recommend

SphaeralceaJon Riki Dinner

We had dinner at Jòn Rìki on our second night in Iceland. The food was excellent, especially the stout braised lamb. The beers were also very interesting, unfiltered, very young, overall very good “farmhouse” ales. I would absolutely go back.

Wag_ColoradoInteresting beer!

I only tried the beer – but Iknow the food is excellent from previous trips. Their new beers are excellent – original too – with the skyr-toned one! Worth a stop just to try them. Look out for music here if you are in the area.

Kirkmexcellent microbrewery!

We stopped in for a cup of coffee on our way to our next location and were greeted promptly by the friendly owner. Many instruments are on display for customers to use at their leisure. 🙂 Lots of furry friends as well. I wish we had the chance to stay for dinner. Definitely worth a stop!

Julia MCharming little place!
