Amazing views of the Hallgrimskirkja from upstairs plus amazing desserts and decent coffee. The inside can look very dated but the food was unreal.

We had the Loki plate and it was perfect for 2 people. If you're wanting to try a piece of the fermented shark then this is an affordable way to do so. I'd highly recommend a Viking beer to wash down the sharp after taste...More

You can taste fermented shark and dried fish but Icelandic meat soup and our Icelandic plates are most popular among the Rye Ice cream and Skyr cake.
