A trip in the past!

Very very particular restaurant! You can eat the þorramatur..all the food used in particular in the past! With the rotten shark, the whale, the blood pudding and so on! It's a very turistic restaurant, but spending a dine in there could be fine!

We were stuck at this restaurant because of our late night arrival at the adjacent hotel. The food was very overpriced - and quite frankly, a disappointment after all the wonderful meals we had enjoyed in other parts of Iceland. They need to work on their menu choices and quality of food.

Great outside decor. Avoid poor quality, high prices inside. Not worth your time. If you love Viking stuff I recommend the Iceland national museum.

This place is DEFINITELY over-sold. We though it might be fun to do a little tourist-trash expedition one night and take in some 'singing vikings and valkyries' alongside traditional Icelandic grub. Upon arrival we were sat right round the back corner of the restaurant and told we could sit any closer as there was a tour group. This group then... More

We visited during the international viking festival and the atmosphere inside was buzzing! I opted for hot chocolate and a portion of waffles, both of which were good. Tables to either side of us had gone for the burgers which looked really tasty!

This restaurant is huge with two levels. Though I’m not an expert with Viking history, the decoration and design gives this restaurant a Viking feel. The cutlery had an old-aged design to them as well. I came here specifically for the fish soup and was disappointed. It was too salty and bitter. I expected more from this place since the... More
