4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

After all day on the golden circle, this restaurant was recommended to us by our guesthouse manager. We ordered a small baby back ribs and the fish and chips. The baby back ribs were very tasty and the meat seemed to be of good quality. The chips (fries) were wonderful - big and crispy and salty (which I love!). The fish was lightly battered and fried well. The waitress was very nice and friendly, and the atmosphere was decent (the back room was more ambient; the front room seemed to have harsher lighting). I especially enjoyed the sauces with the fish. Both plates were heaping with food, and the prices were good for Iceland (each around 1,800ISK each). They also have sushi!

“not bad, but there are better places in town.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The food was not bad, but the service was not very efficient and the place was loud, with lots of carryout business for the pizzas and hamburgers.
