Some friends and I happened upon this place as we were walking around Reykjavik decided to try this place, we were not disappointed. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. It is usually the first meal I think of when I think of eating out in Reykjavik. The staff were great, and a cool vibe.

The Icelandic lamb was to die for. Each dish surpassed our expectations and we couldn't finish what we ordered. With vouchers it was extremely good value.

It was recommended to me by my friend and he wasn't wrong. I can say that I had the best dishes in my life and I visited the restaurant twice before I leave Iceland.

This was an awesome choice!! The place has a great vibe - somewhat casual and warm and happy. Initially we were seated downstairs but it was really hot downstairs... More
