Most of our produce comes from local farmers. We are proud members of East-Iceland Delicacies, an association of farmers and small business that aims to preserve local food culture. Snaefell butchery in Egilsstadir delivers our meat and our fishmonger Mr Kalli brings fresh fish from Borgarfjordur East. The heart of the house is the Spanish Motilfrit charcoal oven that brings out the fantastic flavors of our food.

Icelandair hótel Hérað is proud to be in cooperation with Icelandic Lamb.
Icelandic lamb meat is wonderfully lean, flavorful and tender. The distinctive taste is a result of the grass and the aromatic and spicy herbs on which the lambs graze.
