We were here 3 years ago & had to come back! The smoked salmon appetizer was most delicious & plenty to split for 2 people. We also had their new duck entree which was succulent & fabulous! Still one of our favorite restaurants!

Nice spot. Food was just okay. The salmon starter was excellent. My son liked his pasta. I had a calzone and my husband fish and chips and we both thought our meals were ok. Spent about 30pp no drinks. Service for us was fine.

We were the only ones there, which didn't bode well, but the food and service were both good. Couldn't beat the lovely view of the river out the east windows.

Arhus is located along the Ranga River, 100 km east of Reykjavik on the Ring road, Route 1. It is set in idyllic fields on the banks of the river.
The restaurant serves a rich variety of local plates and global favourites. We also have a fully-stocked bar and a terrace overlooking the river, perfect for relaxing on a sunny evening.
