We were very very pleased with our meal here. The ingredients are fresh, and the dishes are not overly fancy, and very well done. My husband had the cod and I had the salted cod -- both came sizzling in skillets with vegetables. It was simple but delicious. They know what they do well here. An added bonus is the... More

To summarize upfront: The food was good or even very good, but the service was a big problem. Details: We came around 9 pm without a reservation. We were told that they would have a table for us by 9:20 pm. Right after we entered the restaurant, a small family came, who didn't have a reservation either. We came back... More

Great ambience with interesting art on the walls (painted by the owner). Terrific food: loved the lobster soup and cod. We went with our children and they were happy to split a rib eye to share. Highly recommended.

This place doesn't look too promising from the outside, but once you enter, it's a pleasant surprise. It's a large, airy space that still manages to feel cosy. The lady at the entrance was a bit cold at first (quite unusual in Iceland) and service by one waiter and another waitress was friendly, but a bit businesslike. Nothing to complain... More

I tend to briefly read over previous reviews before I post mine and since I have visited Iceland, reading some reviews triggers one conclusion - "I don't make that much money". If you are to try authentic Icelandic cuisine in Iceland, try it once, try it twice. However, if that's all you have, you must make a lot of money,... More

I think this would be great for anyone. Good decor and lighting created a welcoming atmosphere. It is spacious and the tables are well spaced. Don't be put off by the term panfried, everything was delicious. Food was cooked and served in individual skillets brought to the table. Everything was excellent and the special kids dinner that came in their... More

In line with the best nordic cuisine trend, this cozy art restaurant offers the best menu of the area. Great fish and meat, fantastic lobster soup, excellent desserts. I went there with my family and found everything perfect, including the chef kindness and the price, very reeasonable. Thank you!

Just down the hill from our apartments. We had the taster menu. It was all very nice but we were rather full by the end! Not terribly expensive by local standard. Recommended.
