The crowd is clearly high-end Reykjavik. Electric crowd with every other table families celebrating life. Ground floor bar action with a beautiful sunny terrace looking right at The Cathedral. Upstairs more refined with a balcony and view. The service is excellent and non-stop. Food from...the kitchen fresh and healthy. Worth every kroner and it is, indeed, a spot to visit. Warning: you will be lucky to get a reservation. This spot ROK really does ROCK! Good luck and plan ahead!More

We loved the concept of this restaurant. Smaller dishes so you can try them all. It was so delicious that we had eaten here again 2 days later. The menu was so great that we could not choose. While in many other restaurants we tried...in Reykjavik we had to search for 1 dish that we liked. De staff was very friendly and the restaurant was very neat and clean. From this restaurant, you look up to the beautiful church of Reykjavik.More

Charged 6000 for three glasses of champagne under the guise of "happy hour." Please just tell your customers the price or give us a menu when we ask. Instead, when we asked for a happy hour menu, they told us they didn't have one and...that champagne was the current happy hour drink. We assumed that it was like every other place in Iceland with happy hour drinks ranging from 900-1600 so we went ahead and ordered. Nope. They charge you an extra 800 for 7 pieces of licorice and 10 pieces of cantaloupe that we didn't even want, didn't know we were ordering, and didn't eat. It's not hard to be upfront with your customers--I would've gladly bought cocktails at that price point.More

Each of the small plates was artistically presented and absolutely delicious. This is a great way to try more dishes than you would at a regular restaurant. It was quite expensive bur worth it.

I went there with three friends and from the first course to the last we loved every single one of them. The meat just melted in your mouth, I felt like crying with happiness and the service was great, they took excellent care of us....As I live in the city, I feel very happy to have found this place and will go again and again.More

This was one of the best meals we had in Iceland. Small courses but so many different flavours..that is what we have been looking for!

Fabulous place. Ate here in late July 2020. Fabulous menu, terrific food and great wine. Really nice feel about this place - lively, atmospheric, great decor, attentive staff. Surprisingly good value - for Iceland! Recommend it highly.

It's a new restaurant and unfortunately they don't seem to have the menu online yet.
