We went here and had some burnt battered shrimp with gooey dough mixture inside (not good). For mains we had some Icelandic stew. It came piping hot fresh from the microwave and they'd forgotten to put the fish in it. Not great and very expensive for what it was. This place is ideally situated to be the tourist trap it...

I had Nachos salsa as a starter and 'Chili Con Carne' as a main dish . The Main dish ONLY came with a spoonful of rice which was very dissapointing as I like a mouthful of rice with each spoon of chilli Con Carne. Con Carne portion was OK but was left wondering how I am going to eat it... More

We enjoyed the Icelandic Fish Stew and it was a good price too. While not the classiest place, it has atmosphere and character and food is tasty. Offers a mix of Mexican with some Icelandic. A friendly and reasonably priced place.

We did not see Tabasco's at its best as we were the only diners late on a January evening. The vegetarian enjoyed the Mexican-style food which gave reasonable flavours, but not really spicy enough. Icelandic fish dishes were tasty. The place to have dinner with friends but not the place for a special night out. We would recommend it to... More

Was not expecting a Mexican restaurant in Reykjavik, but was pleasantly surprised. From the fajitas, to fish & chips, to the traditional Icelandic fish stew, it was all fresh and tasty. Great spot in central Reyk if you have a sense of adventure!

We stopped to eat at this cozy little restaurant a couple of times. Our first meal was the catch of the day and it was exceptional and good portions. The second meal was the Mexican feast which was very tasty and very filling. The prices are more reasonable here than many of the downtown restaurants and they offered more choices... More
