A. Hansen is one of Hafnarfjörður's oldest and most prestigious restaurants, so prestigious in fact, that the place runs white stretch limousines, carefully labelled A. Hansen, for special occasions and services. Situated centrally in Hafnafjörður, in one of the oldest houses of the town, built in 1880, patrons can enjoy their meals in authentic late nineteenth-century decor, in an atmosphere that takes them to the past. The menu offers an exclusive 'plank steak', and seafood, as well as traditional Icelandic cuisine.
With a capacity of about 350, this spacious restaurant takes you back to the historical Viking Era and makes your visit a memorable one. Dining was never so dramatic before - traditional cuisine is served in old Viking-style trays, there's a dance performance every Saturday and a guest also gets crowned as an 'Honorary Viking' by the head chef. Dishes, such as Fried Salted Cod with olives and garlic are worth a try. But more than the food, it is the atmosphere that will impress you.
An enduring tourist attraction, Fjörukráin is actually two restaurants in one. One is Fjaran, a seafood restaurant with a varied menu that doubles as a favourite Hafnarfjörður bar at nights. Next to Fjaran is Fjörugarðurinn, and for tourist groups they offer Viking banquets, complete with traditional Icelandic food, served in the Viking manner on large wooden trays. The décor is in a mock Viking style, all the way from the crossbeams on the ceiling to weapons and shields on the walls. In addition to this the staff sings, providing live music too. With a view over Hafnarfjörður harbour this is an ever-popular experience for visitors to Iceland.
