“one of a kind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

You must like the viking lifestile to enjoy this amazing restaurant. One goes many ages back in time coming in the dining area, just great feeling. All kind of birds and animals big and small stuffed, small as a mouse and big as a polarbear. Old wooden tabels and benches, and bautiful carvings allover. The menu is from traditional Icelandic to international. We liked the meal we had, and the admosphere was nice. Staff professional , in their viking costumes. No one should leave un happy from a place like this.

“great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

I ate so much I didn't eat again until the next afternoon (large portions as well as I couldn't finish it). Great atmosphere. Not cheap but worth the cash and would go back again.

“Not good food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

I ordered the lamb with Bernaise sause. The lamb was very over cooked and the bernaise sause had split, so there was just butter on my plate. I had to ask for my baked potato, that came later and it was only half potato!
Very over priced.
I don't think I will give them another chance.
The restaurant is though nice, staff friendly.
