Welcome to OUR RESTAURANT
SPANISH & Mediterranean cuisine
Our restaurant, named El Faro in Spanish or ,,The Lighthouse’’ refers to the surroundings of our restaurant. El Faro is located at the beautiful Garðskagi, where there are two lighthouses that can be viewed from our dining room. Here you can also experience breathtaking sunsets, northern lights, arctic storms, huge waves and wildlife.
Our cuisine is Spanish & Mediterranean, a fresh, down-to-earth, uncomplicated food that is full of flavour and based on high quality ingredients.
We put great emphasis on fresh Icelandic products in all our dishes so you can always be sure of the quality.
We pride ourselves on being able to say that we make all of our food from scratch in house, varying from our tasty sauces to our home baked bread and cakes.
In 2021, two couples, Viktor and Jenný from Iceland and Inma and Álvaro from Spain, met for the first time. We met that summer in Flateyri, working together in a Spanish restaurant and became really good friends after an adventurous hiking trip across Hornstrandir. Very soon we found out that we shared passions like adventures, nature and of course FOOD.
It was during that trip when we realised that we could fulfil our dream together, opening our own restaurant, El Faro.
