Víðigerði restaurant and guesthouse
Horse burger, milk-curds and traditional lamb stew
“Tourists brighten our day,” says guesthouse owner and restaurateur Guðmundur Steinsson with a welcoming smile. He used to be a car salesman in Reykjavik before Iceland’s economic setback in October 2008. “I quit my job in Reykjavik and moved up here with my spouse some months before all the trouble started. We were determined to try our luck in what I call ‘the best business in the world’” referring to his guests’ positive attitude to life.

Víðigerði’s old-fashioned restaurant offers perhaps the most unique breakfast in the country. “We serve traditional Icelandic breakfast, common in Iceland until late 20th century. It consists of porridge, boiled egg, liver sausage, cod liver oil for good health, lamb paté spread on bread, and finally – Skyr with fresh cream,” Steinsson explains. “Skyr is the Icelandic name for milk-curds which is actually a popular low fat cheese product that looks and tastes much like yoghurt.” Traditional food is served for lunch and dinner. It is prepared from locally-farmed lamb, horse and beef. Try lamb chops with bread crumbs or traditional clear broth lamb stew with vegetables. If you’re into eating horse meat, this is the right place for you! “Our menu includes horse steak, horse goulash and horse burger,” says Steinsson who admits that horse meat may be too exotic for some.

Víðigerði guesthouse is one of the most conveniently located and affordable accommodations in Iceland. It has 8 double rooms and sleeping bag accommodation. Rooms share private facilities and there’s a living room and a kitchen available to guests.
