Gastronomic treats that are nibbled at zinc-and-cream furniture, and washed down by wine in fish-bowl glasses, make Glitnir the intimidating summit of Tórshavn's modernist chic. Curiously, the pub downstairs is…
Creditable food and good harbour views undermined by simpering muzak and a slight lack of atmosphere.
The highly esteemed chef flambées steaks in cognac and poaches salmon in Riesling. The somewhat staid décor comes much more to life in the evening candlelight.
Small but tasty Chinese buffet above the cinema.

Gentle acoustic live music (mostly covers) played nightly in a cosy British-style pub.
This modern, architecturally interesting cultural centre has a turf roof and a mini-Stonehenge in the carpark. It frequently houses concerts, plays, exhibitions and conferences. There's a pleasant cafeteria.
