Went in early for drinks before dinner after LONG day of driving. Bartender was friendly, knowledgeable and we enjoyed his company. He made a beer recommendation for my husband that didn’t disappoint. Don’t overlook this one!

We had spent the day touring the north of Iceland and found R5 while walking around town. A very comfortable and friendly bar, they have lots of craft beer on tap. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend a stop.
