This place is not very cosy, the food is not particular good and everything comes from some factory - so it is basically just re-heated food. Service is so-so and price is somewhat high for what you actually get. For instance, was the wine list insanely overpriced.

Poor service, smokey smell, food eatable but not worth money, at all! Go somewhere else instead of wasting time and money here.

It is sold like an Italian restaurant and some of the menus are supposed to be. I choose a pasta dish with salmon, and the salmon was very dry, the pasta sauce had a strange taste that I never have tasted before. Normally its not posible to spoil a Tagliatelle con Salmone, but the chef was for sure not Italian.

I visited this restaurant with my mother during a family trip to the region last year. The food was good but I was confused over their drinks menu - they advertised a number of cocktails but, when I tried to order them, they did not have any of the ingredients. For any of them. Not a single one. You might... More

Torshavn turns out to be completely closed down between Christmas and New Years when we were there. Marco Polo attracted our attention as the only place that wasn't completely packed and had a table for us. The desolated restaurant looked like a really bad sign at first, but when the food arrived it was ok.Nothing to write home about, but... More

This is not fine dinning. Spotted this after visiting Pizza King. It is behind Pizza King and next to Cleopetra Pub. Ordered a soup, chips and coffee. The place looks short-handed and cozy small. Fortunately this is after lunch and it is not very crowded. We have time left after visiting most of Torshavn's places of interest. So its window-shopping... More

This choice for family lunch was by far the worse choice we made on our travels through Scandinavia. Not only was the food by far the most expensive we had in 6 countries, it was unexciting, uninspiring and unimaginative . Service was OK - but then it was only the 5 of us and one other table of 2 people.... More

We shared a pizza and it was fast food standard but not by price. Beer was watery. The service was friendly though, mind we were the only customers.
