The Old Skyr Factory Restaurant

Where Iceland Comes Home to Eat Out
Historically The Old Skyr Factory was built as the town’s assembly hall and skyr dairy, and to this day the restaurant serves as a place where villagers and visitors gather to enjoy homemade skyr, a hearty, homemade meal in a warm atmosphere steeped in history and character.

Meals are simple and affordable, but cooked with care from scratch using local, high quality ingredients. And true to its legacy, The Old Skyr Factory Restaurant features our house-made skyr throughout the menu.
