Traditonal cuisine, expirences and home hospitality in the Faroe Islands - eatlocal

Have some 20 years of work experience in all levels in the tourism industry, enjoy the company of travelers and storytelling.


Fried cod, boiled potatoes and onion is one of my favorite lunch/dinner meal I can have. Growing up, fish was on the menu 4 times a week and every Wednesday it was fried cod and has now become my signature dish to serve guests. It is equivalent to Fish & Chips - Faroese style.

The meal is served with a cold local beer.

Traditional Faroese cake and tea/coffee

Super hyggelig aften med rigtig god mad

Tak til Sølvi og hans franske logerende for en meget hyggelig og informativ aften. Snakken gik livligt hele aftenen, og vi fik hen over maden gode tips, fif og idéer til vores videre tur rundt på Færøerne. Meget lækre torskefiletter med kartofler og hjemmelavet rabarberkompot, og dejlig rabarbertærte til dessert.

Lovely evening

Darren and I really enjoyed our dinner with you! Not only was the food fantastic (we are still talking about the fish dish… not to mention the dessert!), we really enjoyed your company and learning more about Faroe. Thanks again for a lovely evening.

Cozy dinner at Sølvi and Sigga

Dear Sølvi SImonarson and Sigga Jacobsen, thank you for hosting the crew of s/y Admiral Bellingshausen! The best cod we have ever had, the cosiest atmosphere and feeling like real home. When we sail further, we know - we have friends on those faraway beautiful islands among the proud and unique small nation. Come to Estonia, then we would be pleased to cook for you after we have finished our journey :)! Follow us at Facebook: Antarctica200-The Arctic

We had a lovely time at Sølvi‘s place. The soulfood he served was delicious and we enjoyed interesting and humorous storytelling about living on the Faroe Islands. We get lots of expert travel information and we wished we stayed for dinner right at the start of our trip.

Great food, entertaining host

We had a great time at Sölvi's home. He's an entertaining host and great cook. We learned about life on Faroe Islands and culture while having a really good meal.

Vi havde en rigtig hyggelig aften hos Sølvi, og det kan varmt anbefales til alle, der gerne vil have lækker mad og hyggeligt samvær. Sølvi er en guldgrube af en vært, og fortæller gerne om den lokale kultur og traditioner. En rigtig dejlig oplevelse som hele familien stadig taler varmt om!
