We went to this restaurant with 2 other couples for breakfast on a Wednesday morning. We were the only people in there. My friend and I split the English or American breakfast (can't remember what it was called but it had a bread basket with croissants and baguette Panini, pineapple and pear, sausage and bacon, beans, eggs, and fruit juice). We paid 26USD and it was plenty for the 2 of us. Others in our group had ordered 2 breakfast menu items to share between 2 people and paid more then we did and didn't get as much food!
The restaurant has a great ambiance so my husband and I decided to come back for dinner later that week. I had the whale steak and my husband had ribs. I almost laughed when his came out on what looked like a cafeteria tray...no shortage of meat there! His also came with a salad (lettuce). My steak came with the same salad and some French fries. My steak was 3 small pieces and the first was a good piece of meat. The second was stringy and there was no way to cut it despite sawing like mad and the third was undercooked. I asked the waitress if my meat could be cooked more and she told me that the chef wanted to prepare me a whole new dish even though it was half eaten because of the fibrous/stringy nature of my steak. I must say the second dish was much better...I didn't know what to expect as I had never eaten whale before.
I was so sad to hear that they did not have crème brule which I had been craving for dessert!
We instead decided to go to the crepe shop that is about a block from this restaurant for dessert instead and were glad we did!
I would rate this restaurant as very good with fair prices for Iceland and with hearty portions.
We paid 85USD for dinner, having the whale steak, ribs, and 2 beers....oh yeah, they have the most delicious artichoke spread for the bread that they bring you with your meal and they will refill it if you want!
