Fifteen years of their adventure with Friğrik V ends on 1 June 2016.

The couple Fridrik Valur Karlsson and Arnrún Magnúsdóttir have been working together for 15 years, since they first started in 2001.
Arnrún’s odd and serious illness have made the couple decide to complete the journey Friğrik V, at least for the time being. "It was not a difficult decision to close. I do not want to continue without her.
The place would not be the same if I was not in the kitchen and Adda in the dining room.
Naturally we wanted it to end differently, but we are pleased with us and this journey. We have had to close before after the financial crash in 2008. We have experienced that it is possible to pick up the thread again later, "says Friğrik V.
