Fish was cold and soup not to our liking. Location nice and Staff ok. Serving was fast but would like to wait longer to get warm fish.

Restaurant is located in front of the sea and there is a big parking lot. Interiors are ok, nothing fancy but clean with a relaxing music in the background. It is not very expensive and also vegetarians can have a meal here (salad or soup)....More

For Icelandic standards, the restaurant looks surprisingly (Icelandic-wise) stylish. The menu options are limited, which is usually a good thing. The salad was ordinary but nothing to complain about.

I ordered the fish of the day (which is usually supposed to be freshly caught) when I got the dish it looked nice but as soon as I tasted the fish it was horrible! The fish was dry, old and just not good at all,...More

This restaurant is integrated into the Leif Eriksson museum. It is small but definitely worth a visit. The menu offers some fixed dishes and a dish of the day. We had among us seafood pasta, fish of the day and rack of lamb. The food...More

Nice location on the water in Burdardal. Food was excellent. As with most restaurants in Iceland, there were 5 or 6 main course offerings. Here, three of them were pasta based. We chose the pasta with tomato and garlic, and the seafood pasta. The pasta...More
