We had a long day out exploring the south west of Iceland and got here after 9pm for dinner. The staff were very friendly and happy to seat us and make us comfortable. Very welcoming and personable. The food here was really great. We thought being a high volume place it might be lower standards but we were really happy... More

We couldn't decide where to eat and we wanted something native to Iceland. Since we never had viking food we decided to go with that. The resturant has a lot of detail and gives you the viking feeling. When we learned they served Hakarl we had to have it. It's listed as one of the worlds worst foods so we... More

Had a very enjoyable 'catch of the day' dinner here. A large oven cooked cod fillet with an onion dressing and a selection of vegetables. Nicely cooked and in an interesting setting.

Maybe because we were there in January, but if was very quiet and boring. I was expecting a viking show and fun for my niece to experience, but it was just a viking themed restaurant with about 6 customers. No special show or interesting entertainment, and practically empty. The food was OK.

We enjoyed the traditional Icelandic menu but some young kids near us had hamburgers and everybody was happy. I am sure this could get over the top and crowded but for winter visitors just right.

Great, atmospheric, faux Viking dining hall. We've been here twice : once lively, full, viking themed, drunk Danish tourists (4 star) ; and last August : empty, flat, quiet. As the food and beer are nothing special, I'd only go again if I knew there was a Viking show or event on, otherwise best avoid.

The theme of the restaurant was great and the food delicious, but the service poor. To be fair, we arrived fairly late for dinner, but still doesn't excuse pretty much being ignored when we were the only people in the restaurant. Overall - food made it worth it but it was an easy choice to not return our second night... More
