Set on the corner of the main shoppingstreet in the city, this is a nice central restaurant. A very warm and welcoming ambience. As noted in a previous review , lots of nooks , crannies and small rooms to hide away in gives this restaurant a very intimate feel. It is also busy and bustling and serves good italian food... More

Thankfully, we'd booked in advance for our first night in Reykjavik, and had a great meal. The friendly and prompt service made it all the more enjoyable.

Ate here last Sunday night after a phenomenal weekend trip to Reykjavik. This restaurant was right next door to our hotel, and had a great photo outside showing the interior which looked very cosy and inviting, and not like you'd expect from the exterior. So don't let this put you off. We got seated straight away and were immediately struck... More

Found this restaurant by chance - right on the main street of Laugavegur. Lovely setting - delicious choices for wines and beer and the food was very, very good. Plenty of choices - nice varied menu from traditional Icelandic dishes - fish, meat, etc. as well as pizzas, burgers, etc. Not too bad for prices, either. We didn't have a... More

Went for a meal here on our last night in Iceland as we were just passing, and had a great time. The place is warm and friendly with a good choice of meals.
