They didn't serve puffin - what a disappointment. Why would you not serve puffin on Puffin Island? The whale stake was great, but I wish the salad bar would have been included with an expensive main meal. And I wish there was a pool table.

Poor and slow service, and didn’t get the table we reserved two days in advanced! The food was okay, not too bad.

Very good soup and salad bar plus a decent, wholesome menu. One in our group did the soup and salad and the rest of us ordered from the menu. The fresh Cod was excellent.

Family of 8. Waited for an hour for the food. The burgers were probably ready 15 minutes before we got them. So over cooked that it was almost un eatable. Fries were ok.

After a nice tour around the Vestmannaeyjar it was great to dine at TANGINN before returning to the mainland. The food was very good and the service even better.
