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.

The American and German influence is very noticeable. The food was on a par with a UK Weatherspoons or a US Olive Garden. Only one local beer (Gull) to try - Could have been anywhere in the world - Nothing really unique to Iceland and if I were to try the weirder local stuff, It wouldn't have been here based... More

The ambience of this large restaurant is unique and inviting. in addition to the rustic Nordic decor, we found the food to be very good and plentiful. One of their specialties is the Icelandic lamb shank.

Food average and a little pricey for what you get. Interesting themed atmosphere. Thought if would be a touristy venue and it was. Staff friendly.

This restaurant is absolutely briljant. The atmosphere that's created is so awesome, you forget you are living in de 21 century. The staff is super nice and helpful. And if you want to talk dishes... It ranges from Sheepshead to Whale, and ofcourse you can get a regular burger, steak or some ribs. This is a serious must if you... More
