Food & drink

Já Sæll - Grill & Bar  is the village’s bar, burger joint and live music venue. They serve local cod and lamb dishes for dinner, and host concerts throughout the light nights of the summer months. You can also drop in for a beer at the bar, and the friendly staff are happy to tell stories and offer advice about what to do nearby.

Álfacafe, the “elf café,” is another good option in town. The visitor would do well to try fish soup or the tasty waffles with whipped cream and fresh berries. The café is adorned with artifacts made from local rocks and other interesting pieces on display portraying local culture and art. Next door you´ll find the local fish factory which is worth a glance or two.

Frystiklefinn - Blábjörg Guesthouse is a new restaurant located at a former fish factory in Borgarfjörður eystri. Blábjörg is a clean and modern hostel, located metres away from the seaweed-clad beach. There’s a spacious restaurant and bar with a lounge area. There’s also a small spa that’s open in the evenings to sooth away any knots from a day of hiking.
