I think that this is the best place if you like regular food. The food there is awesome and the atmosphere there is so good. As I am not a local, I am not familiar with the food but I must say it is certainly...very good. However, the service there is not up to par with the food. One time, I had asked for a glass of water and they had the audacity to charge me an extra buck!More

Good atmosphere, great location, fast service. However, the food was disappointing. I had the super food bowl that came with a very spicy guacamole that unfortunately ruined an otherwise very delicious bowl. My partner had a crispy chicken madness/fries chicken which came in a plastic...basket (!? - we thought this was a nice restaurant!). The chicken was supposed to be crunchy, but it was overflown with sweet and sour sauce making the chicken very soft and not near crunchy. Also this dish was overpriced and more expensive.More

We came at a difficult time when they had to have 2 meters between each table because of covit and they were packed and about 45 minute wait for a table, we asked if we could sit somewhere and wait and the waitress got a...table and chairs and carried them out for us, and just everything we asked was no problem and done with á smile! When we got our table the food came really fast and was sooo good!More

First of all, the service is not good. The waiters served other guests that came after us before us, even though we had obviously already decided and were not looking at the menus anymore. I got a hamburger and fries. I felt like I was...eating fries someone else left - they even had a mark after a fork in one of them! And they also had some green spice on them that the others at the table did not get. Their fries were different even though we ordered the same burger. I will not be coming here again unfortunately.More

Very friendly staff tho young and need a bit more experience. There was a large selection on the menu and I enjoyed my meal but my daughers was not good at all, she left it all and got some of mine but no questions were...asked about her meal, they just came and took it away and even I complained we still paid full price for her uneaten meal. Tho it is a nice place, I did come out of there feeling ripped off.More

We had Dinner here with hopes of a solid meal/drinks after a long day in wilds of Iceland. We both had Ribs, a frites-starter and glasses of wine. Food quality is ok at the most, service consist of young people both in the kitchen and...on the floor, and the honestly lack training an experience. The place is loud, unordered and the mass amount of customers going un/out makes it sonewhat caotic. Its a fair Diner, so set your expectations to rhat level.More

Dropped in here for dinner and left feeling not only unsatisfied with what I ate, but also a bit like I got robbed in order to eat it. I had cajun chicken pieces, of which there was three, in a very plain sauce. They were...advertised as being crispy but this was far from the case. A handful of fries came with and a thimble of coleslaw. Also, call me old fashioned but I think I would have preferred this served on a regular ol’ plate rather than in a basket lined with paper where that paper gets all stuck to my chicken which makes it a nightmare to eat. My partner had fish and chips. Fish itself was okay, but the batter was greasy, tasteless and pulled apart like a wet plaster instead of breaking in a satisfying crunch. One sad side of mozzarella sticks and a beer and it cost us 10’000kr. Let me put that in perspective as someone who has lived in Iceland four years now. That’s not just overpriced. That’s daylight robbery and pretty insulting. We both agreed we should have went to a more upmarket place where at least we may have got some decent food to justify that price. This town has lots of food places around, if you’re reading this now, find a place that’s not this one.More

Nice restaurant right in the center of the city. We came here for the fish and was not disappointed. Both the salmon & fish and chips were absolutely delicious. I would also recommend trying the ginger beer. The staff are very friendly, speak great English...& cards are accepted.More

Very tasty food in the center of town. We had a pulled lamb sandwich, spaghetti carbonara and side salads. We had to lick our plates. Food at other tables also looked delicious.
