Really friendly service with the manager greeting us at the door. We had the mashed fish and potatoes served with rye bread and the seafood soup served in a bread bowl. Both were delicious. After we had eaten this we were given a bowl of...the lamb soup, again this was very tasty. We visited during happy hour so beer was also cheap. Lovely friendly atmosphere with great food.More

We had the all you can drink soup: tried both the traditional lamb and shellfish with bread on the side. It was sooo delicious and comforting. You can tell how much heart they put into their food! It's a great place to escape the cold...winter for a quick meal. The atmosphere is cozy and the staff are friendly. I highly recommend this place for anyone exploring Reykjavik!More

Visited the outlet on Laugavegur. It was recommended to us by a local as we were cold and needed a cheap, filling meal. Tried the lamb soup (stew) served in bread. Delicious, filling and free refills. Water & small cakes for dessert were free! Highly...recommend. Staff were so friendly too!More

We had the lamb soup and it was tasty and delicious. We wanted to try the fish stew/soup based on the reviews here on TA, but it wasn't ready and saw the owner turn away numerous guests - asking them to return in an hour...or so when it would be ready. I took this as a nod to the quality that he demands but it was lunchtime (1pm) and we were disappointed to not be able to try it. The bathrooms were a little untidy and dingy.More

We went in for a quick lunch but ended up eating very well (delicious lamb soup served in a bread) and having a nice chat with the owner. He went out of hid way to serve us. We really recommend this place.

Prior to our trip to Iceland, a lady on public transport recommended this place as we got talking about visiting Reykjavik, so it was high on our "to visit" list. It's quite a small place so gets busy, but we were lucky enough to get...seats by the window. We ordered 3 bowls of soup served in hollowed out bread and aside from the novelty for us coming from overseas, it was really very tasty. 1 with lamb, 1 with seafood and 1 with vegetables and we all enjoyed them very much. The price is reasonable for Iceland (although I nearly spat out my coffee when I did the conversion - Reykjavik is expensive!) but don't let that put you off! Friendly staff, good food and a welcoming atmosphere.More

First things first: the restaurant moved down the road a bit, about 3 or 4 houses I think). Due to Covid not everything from the menu was available. But even the reduced options were truly amazing (and I'm quite hard to please when it comes...to food)! We had a lamb soup and a tomato/mexican one and both were fantastic! Everything else you're reading here is still true (free refills / waffles / hot chocolate / coffee / water). Also a very nice and helpful owner! Especially for the whole package the price is more than reasonable (even if you don't take icelandic prices as a given). Very much recommended!More

Let me start off by saying I'd be hard pressed to say I've never felt more welcome in ANY other establishment I've ever visited. The owner warmly and enthusiastically greeted us at the door as soon as we walked in. It was a chilly February...day, but the sun was brutal at the window seat, so he propped open the door and then offered us a bench seat to the side...immediate relief! He then told us the house specialties and we decided right off the bat. An order of seafood soup and "mashed fish" was headed our way. Both dishes arrived very quickly and it was like taking a bite of heaven itself. The mashed potatoes with fish were like nothing I've ever experienced previously and the seafood soup was divine. I grew up on lamb dishes and when the owner offered me a bowl of lamb soup I simply couldn't resist. For some, lamb is an acquired taste, but to me it was a reminder of my childhood. All the way around...top marks. The owner was right on point and visited each and every table making sure they were good to go. Bottom line, this place is very easy to get to and offers some of the tastiest Icelandic food I've had while traveling there over the past few years. Take a break and stop in for a bite...you won't be disappointed!!More

I was a little peckish and wanted something warming. This was the perfect choice. The seafood soup hit the spot, they gave a free lamb soup refill which my sister loved. It's cool that they do free pancakes. Nice touch..lovely friendly staff.
