Some Icelandic meals

We ate here as I wanted to try something unusual. Most of the restaurants offering Icelandic specialities were really expensive. This place offered Minke whale steaks at a price that was reasonable for Reykavik, so we decided to give it a try. We had Minke whale (c.£20), BBQ burger (c.£10... read more

Food was mediocre and quite dry. Lots of times we heard the microwave going off and as the only diners can only surmise it was for our food!

First off the waitress didn't even tell us the special, she ran off to watch the handball game. The draft Viking beer wasn't cold. I had the chicken fajita and it was terrible, the guacamole was disgusting and the rice tasted like it was made yesterday. Another family member ordered the lobster. It and the butter was bland. The waitress... More

Visited for lunch and received a warm welcome. Lots of choice on the menu. Went for the chicken quesidilla, which came with salad, nachos, rice, sour cream, guacamole and salsa. Very tasty, and freshly made. Average price. Free use of wifi and the bathroom was clean. Would visit again.

Lovely restaurant with great food and service. Staff even changed the TV to the important football match for some of the other diners. Good value for money considering how expensive Iceland is.

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 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 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
