“Best burgers we've had in years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Let's face it, eating out is expensive in Reykjavik. Sometimes you have to search for something that sounds good and just go for it. Listed in a guidebook as "budget" recommended, we entered this very small cafe-type restaurant with bar on the side. We could have ordered smoked puffin or whalemeat as both were on the menu, but none in our family were that adventurous. We all ordered burgers and were not disappointed. My 20 year old son exclaimed his burger was the best he had ever had and the rest of us were pretty much in agreement. Yes, we were hungry and had not eaten a hamburger in three weeks which is unusual for our family. We each had a huge burger with various toppings, a generous portion of fries. Our bill for just the four plates was the equivalent of $77, which is a whopping amount back home. However, after living on airport snacks and airplane food, we wanted something a bit more satisfying. This place is great!

“Good burgers, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

This was a cosy little place, and we enjoyed our burgers very much. There were plenty of choices which sounded good, so the worst part was choosing what to eat.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We received a warm greeting and we were helpfully informed that there is no children's menu before being seated. The Tiny burgers are a decent size. The garnishes served with the burgers are fresh and delicious, the chips were wonderful and the 73 sauce is tasty. Good range of food and drinks available. Service is friendly and informative. Lovely atmosphere and very reasonably priced given the location and quality of the food. Hope to visit again someday.

“Decidedly average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Nice enough place but there are so many great places in Reykjavik you could choose.
My main issue was that the cod was part cooked and the vegetables consisted of just red pepper with balsamic vinegar. Too sweet and sloppy for me.
