“Nautholl is cold”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Service was impersonal, premises are Scandinavian, white and rectangular, tables aligned. Large windows gave view to a large parking place.

Completely full at lunch, mainly young people ordering hamburgers from a menu advocating healthy courses. People are still living in the pre-2008 crash style-over-substance era.

The blue ling of the day was fine, but the accompanying mashed potatoes were cruelly peppered and the vegetables overly panfried, €16. Chicken salad at €19 was nondescript.

Acceptable, but next time I shall go elsewhere.

“Always good food”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Nauthóll is a 30 minute walk from my home so we visit there often (with family, friends and co-workers). Beautiful environment, always good food and almost always good service.

“Fantastic!”

Wonderful food, nice, modern bistro in beautiful surroundings with a great view and friendly service. We had lunch after a nice windy walk and could have lingered for hours. Loved it.

“quiet, by the beach”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Nautholl was a short walk from my hotel and decided I should try other than the SATT. I had the fish of the day..bad choice..salted cod. Of course it was salty! The service was ok--price was less than SATT. The walk was worth the visit. Another tourist asked if what they saw was the Northern Lights. She said no. On my walk back to the hotel (about 10 minutes later) I saw the Northern Lights to the North and South of the walkway. Streetlights did not seem to hinder them, nor the lights on the Pearl. I feel for the other tourists as they were given incorrect information. Hope they got to see them another night. I did the next night also. Good activity that week, but the night of the Nautholl was a 9 out of 10.
