It was not cheap for the 3 course of lobsters meal but it was really worth it! 1. different ways of lobsters preparation were served were just fantabulous! I specially love the slightly grilled ones, they just so fresh and juicy! 2. the side dishes were given a lots (e.g. salads, vege, starch, breads) which were healthy and filling. 3.... More

We saw that this was no2 on TripAdvisor so we went along with no booking and had a wonderful meal. There is a car park just round the corner so access was easy. The prices were affordable, 50 quid for mains, desserts and drinks for 2 people. The menu had many options and I was treated to the best pork... More

Very dark and moody (in a good way) inside the restaurant with lots of candles. We chose from the various set menus to get a sample of Icelandic food including the fish of the day. The food was beautifully presented and tasty. The best bit by far was the pudding, I don't no exactly what it was but I've been... More

Lovely cozy atmosphere with candle lights and dark wood, exceptionally good service, and the food was incredible - the seafood was so tender and fresh and the chef balances both flavor and texture in all of the courses. The batter for the deep fried langoustine could have been a bit lighter but the flavor melded well. The amuse-bouche of shrimp... More

This is definitely in our top ten meals we have ever had. I had the Langoustine starter and the entree of Arctic Char done 2 ways and both were perfect. My husband had the fresh grilled fish 3 course dinner which was cooked perfectly. The creme brûlée dessert was deconstructed and was truly outstanding. All prices for meals are more... More

This place comes highly recommended. It is a beautiful restaurant with a smaller menu than I thought they would have. We shared a starter salad which was a GENEROUS portion. Definitely something two people could share OR one could eat as a entree. [BTW, all the ingredients here are FROM Iceland!] We also chose the lagoustine pasta. I love those... More
