Who was Max?

The restaurant is named in honor of our golden retriever who loved the guests, good food, and enjoyed running through the landscape as far as you can see.

It all started when…

Kristjana Einarsdóttir co-owner of Northern Light Inn focused her passion for serving guests delicious foods by creating Max’s Restaurant.

Today, chef de cuisine Jóhann Ingi Reynisson, creates Max’s seasonal menus of Nordic soul food.

Thank you!
