Famed for its elegant, French-inspired seafood cuisine, Torfan is set in a listed 19th-century building (the restaurant's name refers to Bernhöfts-Torfa, a historical part of the town) that’s traditionally decorated with traditional paintings on the walls, ornate ceramics and classic wooden floors. Aside from the famed Icelandic lobster it serves, the restaurant also offers up game, beef, fish, and even horse as à la carte options, set menus such as the Langoustine Feast and the Surf and Turf Feast, and vegetarian items like mushroom risotto, and broccoli with oyster mushrooms)—all of which balance tradition with modern techniques and influences. Service is friendly as well as professional.
