Our family of 4 stopped here while visiting the area. We had the fish soup and waffles and chocolate cake - all delicious! The staff were very friendly and helpful. I'm sure it gets busy, but we were able to get a table inside without...More

As you may see in the pictures, this cafe has a fantastic view. The cafe was small with a couple of food choices from soup, sandwich, and coffee. The host was very kind and the food tastes great. It is a little pricey for the...More

Facing the bird cliffs in Hellnar, this small, charming place is a gem. We had the fish soup, waffles and espresso-- all excellent. And, the view from the deck is outstanding!

A tiny little place, with outdoor tables overlooking the fantastic scenery of Hellnar harbor. The Fish Soup is the main attraction and very good (but pricey, like everything else in Iceland), but our son-in-law enjoyed the Quiche as well. The outdoor tables fill up quickly...More

The café is difficult to locate because it is at the end of a small steep road next to the rocky beach. The café is small. I don't know how they manage to feed all the people who go there to eat, but they do!...More

the best place to relax and to have a cup of amazing local fish soup after hiking from Arnarstapi, the location is unbeatable, with a terrace overlooking the ocean and cliffs.

Nice staff but most of all: the best location to have a drink when making the small hike from Arnarstapi to hellnar

Good option if close to Hellnar. Fish soup was nice, although pricy like everything in Iceland (k2500). Nice views and you can start the hike to Arnarstapi from right there. Hellnar has population of 8, don't expect many options, but this is recommended.

Drive to the end of the road in Hellnar (hellnavegur road) and it's there - you kind of have to walk down to it. You could also park in Arnarstapi and do the coastal hike - this place would be at the end of that hike.
