The House of Food

The old building Bjargarsteinn was built as a home at Vesturgata 64 in Akranes in the year 1908. It served this purpose until 2008, when the church bought the house to use the land for a car park. The company S.Ó. Húsbyggingar took on Bjargarsteinn and transported it from Akranes to Borgarnes, where the house was rebuilt. The current owners came across the little house where it stood ready for relocation with a “for sale” sign on it, and it occurred to them that it would serve well as a little restaurant. The dream was to find a plot of land with exceptional views for Bjargarsteinn, and they found that by the coastal ridge in the seaside village of Grundarfjordur. The plot had previously had an old bait shack and a fish-drying shed on it. The ground was broken in October 2014, and in beautiful weather on 7 December the same year, Bjargarsteinn was brought to its new location. The buildings were renovated and extended. Bjargarsteinn House of Food opened it doors for business on 31 July 2015.
