Good Food

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

Nice place and not like any other, the fish was fresh and tasted very good, as was the service. The surroundings is very nice and you don´t find anything like this other places, I think.
