Nutrition that delights and educates


The Christmas menu takes into account Icelandic Christmas customs in the 20th century when the Christmas lamb and the ham were the focus.


Although the old days were not characterized by bean and vegetable steaks, they are still part of the festive menu at Eyrarbakki.


The Danish apple cakes that first went to the Icelanders' table in "Húsin" in Eyrarbakki, egg and cream puddings, almond porridge with winnings, chocolate with whipped cream, stripes and cookies are our "Old Christmas" in Eyrarbakki ..

Many people remember the feeling that the eve of Christmas evoked in the "old days" and lit a candle in the hearts and minds of children of all ages.


The cultural and restaurant center in Eyrarbakki now offers Icelanders an Advent and New Year's program in the spirit of this old time.


The setting and locations of this unique historic village are ideal for reviving the old Christmas spirit as a choice and a counterbalance to other options in the Christmas buffet culture that has taken root in recent decades.


Christmas stories and music in Eyrarbakkakirkja are the prelude to a festive meal in the Red House.

A beautiful bend has been formed by Eyrbekkingar who can welcome guests and now join hands on this program of light and peace:
