Excellent seafood

If you're looking for really good Icelandic seafood this is a good place. The food is fresh, and the have a nice selection of seafoods that are native to Iceland such as Char and Bacalao.

Best meal in Reykjavik. Even the table itself was unique. We had GREAT service. Attentive but not intrusive. The starters were varied and delicious, the steak superb and the wine list extensive. We were with a vegetarian and they made her happy as well! Reservations a must.

I made reservations at this restaurant (from a recommendation on a Trip Advisor trip report, of course...) before leaving on our Iceland trip. It was a Friday night, so the only time I could get was 6:00 p.m. That's a bit early for us, but it worked out just fine. Originally the reservation was for two, but they had no... More

This is a great restaurant with an amazing atmosphere, lovely cocktails and most of all delicious food! Everything was cooked to perfection. The lobster soup was particularly nice and they also have horse and whale on the menu if you are feeling adventures! I would definitely recommend to book a table in advance however as they seem to get booked... More

Expensive, but so is every other place in town - at this place it feels justified. The food was fresh, delicious, and inventive.

excellent service!! Amazing food! A bit pricy but if you're on a budget, at least get their burgers for lunch, they are also amazing. An orgasm in my mouth. No lies.

This place is must during a visit to Reykjavik. The food was simply superb. I went for a mix of fish and enjoyed it very much. The food in combination with the ambinece and the great service = fantastic experience.

We arrived in the middle of dinner time without a reservation and were immediately seated at the bar. On a friend's recommendation we went with the tasting menu and were not disappointed.

Quite simply the best. The venue itself is fantastic looking, the service was impeccable and the food amazing. If you only go out for one meal in Reykjavik then this is the place to go.

We had made a reservation to eat here on a Tuesday evening. It was a bit hard to find as it is tucked back off the street. Very busy but service was excellent. It is pricy, but most things are in Iceland. I had the Icelandic Lamb and my husband tried the tenderloin of horse, which I was leery of... More
