I had dinner here with my two kids, aged 9 & 11. I ordered an appetizer which came out first followed by the kid's orders. I had to ask for silverware, which took a while to come out. Then I finally had to ask where my main dish was and the waitress seemed surprised that either I hadn't gotten it... More

In our recent trip to Reykjavik we liked this restaurant so much we went back the next evening and we would have gone a third time but felt too embarrassed to do it. Good food (mainly fish) at decent prices, good service and a very central and convenient location.

We decided to have diner there only base on our feeling with out having read any review. Dishes are various, wine choice is correct for Iceland and on top of that we have good exchanges on icelandic usages and culture with the staff. Icelandic dessert with Skyr, fruit was so good and we have tested the "black death" ;-) The... More

My husband and I popped in here recently and each ordered a well-priced fish-and-chips lunch special. It was lovely and one of the better, and less costly, meals we had in Iceland. The ambiance was quiet and laid back, with only two other patrons, but we liked the vibe. We couldn't afford most of the menu, but that fish and... More

Well worth a visit if you are in Reykjavik - it is not an expensive place and the food is really good. I had cod and it was very tasty

We sat down, got a drink and ordered food and then nothing happened for 25 minutes.... we saw that the tables next to us were getting their food but... More

My friends and I were in Reykjavik and decided to stop in this place for dinner. It was pouring rain outside so the warm, friendly atmosphere was very appreciated. The service is good, the food is delicious, and I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Try the Plaice on the Smørrebrød menu. Delish!

This is a small restaurant affiliated with the Hotel Fron where we stayed for a few days in Reykjavik. We ate both breakfast and dinner here. Breakfast was a typical European buffet with everything you need for a quick breakfast. Nothing unique but the food was fresh and plentiful. Dinner was more interesting with a number of local choices. All... More
