We ordered hamburgers that were not very challenging to our digestive systems and it came with no salad even though it should have according to the menu, once the food was delivered, we never saw our waitress again. I had to go to the bar to not only refill my water - which just came from a tap and I... More

We were glad we made the trip to eat here. The viking decor inside the restaurant (and outside) is very fun. It's a place you will want to take pictures because of its uniqueness. The menu had so much good stuff on it and we wanted to try it all. We both enjoyed our food and our waitress was very... More

We ordered the lamb shanks which were quite nice. There was a complimentary much room soup which was quite nice. The lamb shanks came with mash, veg and coleslaw. Personally I like more green veg but small amounts of green veg may be typical of meals out in Iceland. I am not sure it really manages to measure up to... More

This was a very entertaining, and also unexpected, stop. It was far, far too pricy for what it was, but with a gut full of Brennavin, a lamb chop swimming in gravy and a bowl of langoustine soup were just the ticket for three hours of watching a "Viking" sing happy birthday to an asian tour group of about fifty....

Strangely the Viking theme did not stretch to the menu. Although my fish if the day was nice, the kids did not think much of the various pasta dishes.

Hearty food served to a large group. A little slow coming, but the catered well to the group and served good food options to those with special diets. Lovely breakfast the following morning too. Friendl, helpful staff. Fun with viking singers at dinner too.

We came here as part of a deal with horseriding. The food was very average, very touristy and not something we would do again, especially as we were still wet from the horseriding. The entertainer was quite funny but gimmicky.

Highly themed Viking restaurant-wood carvings etc. Quiet when we visited and that was on a Friday night.Food is authentic-If you want to try the mixed starters including shark,whale,puffin,smoked lamb and a black death liqueur, etc this is the place for you. We had for the main course the singed half sheeps head-Go on give it a go-They also do 'normal'... More

I went here just to have photos taken as a tourist but decided I wanted to taste authentic Icelandic cuisine. I had lobster soup, Lobster,and tagliatelle with mushroom and cream and yoghurt for dessert. I was happy I tried it all and was impressed with the presentation and the taste. It is a bit expensive, but I didn't mind paying... More

The food was amazing! Started out with great soup and then on to a full leg of lamb, followed by dessert of ice cream and Icelandic yoghurt. The entertainment was fun!
