If you're in Reykjavik and look for an affordable, delicious, and healthy dinner, YOU MUST GO HERE! My group arrived at 9pm and the restaurant was fairly empty. While they had already closed the salad bar, they got us a sampling of all of the items at the salad bar - it was hard to pick which of 15 or... More

We ate at both locations of this restaurant, and really loved the food here. The Skulagata location is only open for lunch, and you can't order off the menu, but the soup and salad buffet is quite delicious and fulfilling. The food was simply wonderful, and at around $17/person, a real value in Reykjavik. We tried the Hverfisgata location after... More

This restaurant was great for our vegetarian (very good soup, decent salad bar I was told), not so good for the meat eaters (burnt quesadillas, among other things). Service was, as generally in Reykjavik, very friendly and pretty incompetent. We had to constantly ask for silverware, for napkins, for things we had ordered. The restaurant itself has a very eclectic... More

The food here was very fresh and the views are awesome, modern, clean and somehow relaxing. Perfect if you want to eat healthy.

I have had lunch at their restaurant on Skúlagata a few times, both with family and business colleagues. Every time, it has been very enjoyable and satisfying. Their primary lunch offering is a set of different soups, breads and a salad bar. The soups are always excellent - flavorful and exciting. The bread is delicious and the salad bar has... More

If you go to Reykjavik you have to eat at this restaurant. The food is great, the Price is very low and the staff i very friendly. I just wish they would open a restaurant in Copenhagen so that I could eat there every week. We stayed 7 nights in Reykjavik and visited this restaurant 5 times.

This restaurant is me and my girlfriends best kept secret. we go there from time to time for a little bit of quiet time and good food. This family owned business offers the warmth of a home rather than the disturbing feel of a massive chain restaurant. You feel the vibe coming from the staff and they are extremely polite... More

We booked this restaurant from our hotel for 7.30 at 7pm - we were a party of 13 and they were able to accommodate us. We arrived about 10 minutes early before the table was ready; we were all excited, had had a few beers and wines and I thought this must be the restaurant staff's worst nightmare! We were... More

Nice restaurant, not expensive and perfect for when you have a Northern Lights trip planned or don't want to waste too much time on dinner. Vegetable buffet was delicious as were the main courses our group ordered. Nice staff. Be careful about their address though, they have two locations, one was closed.
