Quick service

We weren't sure about eating here since it was pretty quiet, although we had seen it busier. Speedy service. Varied menu. Food ok. Price was reasonable. Very handy location, close to our hotel.

We went into Tabasco's as it was just around the corner from where we were staying & as the weather was really bad we didn't want to travel too far and we were very glad that we did pop in. It had a nice varied menu, not just Mexican and I tried the Mink whale for the first time and... More

We were unsure whether to try this place based in the mixed reviews but we decided to give it a go as it was near our hotel and we were fancying chilli. It was actually very nice. The chilli was very tasty, better than I've had in a lot of places. It came with rice, nachos, salad, cheese and sour... More

I heard the food was good in here so I had to try it. I was a little weirded out because this restaurant served authentic Icelandic food but it was labeled a Mexican Restaurant. I walked in and Asians were serving and in the kitchen. Being Hispanic I knew this was a red flag from the get go. I ordered... More

Me and my fiancee were in Iceland for 4 days, and luckily we found this great restaurant the first evening there. Think we had 3 dinners there due to the great food. I really do recommend the salmon dish, the mink whale, the mexican chicken soup, whatever burger you'll have and the beef. The mink whale and the beef were... More

We only went in to avoid the blizzard and it looked warm and inviting, we were glad we did. In fact the fish was the best we had in Iceland, very fresh and perfectly cooked. The accompanying salad and spuds were dull, could have been done better with minimal effort and the waiter's English was "interesting", but he was very... More
