Great food, cosy interior without beeing too "stiff". Helpfull staff and BBQ food that, compared to other places, isn`t too expensive. Well worth your time, in fact: just go there!

What a gem! Had an outstanding meal on Culture Night! Staff were excellent. Food was absolutely outstanding. Finest fresh ingredients and cooked to perfection. We had the tasting menu with matches wines. Wow. Outstanding value! In fact without a doubt the most generous wine package we've ever experienced. There were approx 9 courses of stunning food. Breads, whale, deep fried... More

Three of us went for dinner and found service lacking. Waited about 15 min before waiter arrived. Ordered appetizer which arrived but no plates. Food dripping all over the table while tasty needed a wash afterwords! Waiter indifferent. The plates were large and it would have helped to have some guidance from the waiter. Ordered the langoustines and receive 12!!!... More

If you want a real treat, this is the place. Cool atmosphere wity lots of locals. Extensive menu with seafood, meat and veggie. The lobster is a huge portion so be careful and the seafood soup is a little on the salty side.

We had dinner twice in one week here. Mainly due to the fact that the first dinner was so good that we had to come back! Portions are large - we had one app, 2 mains and 1 dessert for two adults and were stuffed. The food is prepared with care and effort. This is protein-lover paradise - the meat... More

We had a nice dinner here on our second night in Iceland. Pricey - but delicious. Sampled things would have never thought...whale, puffin... Glad we tried it - not sure if it's worth the premium, but then again, everything in Iceland is expensive, even the local sourced dishes The restaurant itself is beautiful - and worth checking out.

This trendy restaurant is real deal. Atmosphere is inviting. Dried fish skin on the walls appear as richly colored leather wallpaper ascents. The wait service is courteous and attentive. Food selection is varied and includes the ever present lamb and meat dishes one sees in Iceland. The whale and squid appetizers are especially good. I will not hesitate to return.

Great service, Excellent food, Very expensive (even for Reykjavik). Highlights of the meal were the slider trios (whale, lobster, reindeer) and the Horse tenderloin. This is a great place to try some unusual meats. The portions were surprisingly very large. We had a great meal here, but be prepared to $$$ for it.

With a rating "number 2 out of 299 in Reykjavik" I was expecting great things. We turned up without a reservation at 6.40pm and were offered seats at a bar in front of the kitchen. By 7pm they were turning customers away so I'd try and arrive early if you don't have a reservation. The food was fine and extra... More
