we had a wonderful farewell dinner here - and everything was amazing. Starting with the incredible butter (egg shaped served on a stone) and bread, fish soup, lamb, arctic char... Service was top, as was the food. Everything is expensive in Iceland...with that said, this restaurant is worth it. Reservations in season a must

After reading the rave reviews and looking at the menu I was super excited to try this place! We made a reservation for lunch at 1:00 on a weekday. The atmosphere was nice but the waitress was slow to acknowledge us (it was not busy) and I was very surprised when she said they did not have the sushi that... More

I've been to this restaurant every now and then for the last few years. Consistently amazing food, great service and good value for money. If in Iceland this should be one of your first stops!

a very busy restaurants, service is just superficial. Food is in good portion, both a la carte or the set feast are not tiny. Restaurants is in center of town.

We turned up here on a busy Friday night and were able to get a table after a short wait. The staff were charming and helpful and the food was great - the flavours of lovely fresh ingredients shone through in every dish. And it was great value for money!

We were looking for a good place to have our last dinner before departing Iceland to come home after a two week visit. We don't dress up to go on vacation and we're not prone to making reservations. We figure the universe will take care of the details and this time the universe came through big time. I checked some... More

Food is exquisite with a variety of seafood and meat. There are options for different tastes. And best creme bulle ever! Staff is very friendly, too. Very good cost-benefit ratio.

The waitstaff at this restaurant were very accommodating even though the place was packed, and I was consistently asked if I needed anything or was enjoying the meal. The service wasn't the absolute best I've ever had, but it was great on its own. But the food is what made this place wonderful. I don't indulge in multiple course meals... More

Four people, for dinner on a week night, a very enjoyable eating event. The menu includes several options for fixed menus, but we weren't hungry enough for that, so we chose single dishes from the card. Two of us had starters (carpaccio of beef, excellent, and a wonderful seafood soup). Then two had the pasta (both have Italian credentials and... More
