his place was on our food tour and we went back for the incredible lobster tacos and they were unbelievable both times. They also have a fabulous creme brulee. Service was so-so but the food was worth the slow service.

This is nicely located on Cathedral street. We has a set menu with excellent seafood soup, lamb or cod for mains and nice dessert. Alas, no-one seemed very happy.

We ate here tonight without a reservation and we’re very impressed. We had the seafood pasta and today’s special, which was halibut. The portions were very large and delicious. The restaurant was pretty and the service was very professional. Not inexpensive but a fine dining...experience.More

Stuffed up our booking and made to feel bad once again because we had vouchers for dinner! However once the wait staff got over themselves we enjoyed excellent food and nice cocktails/wine.

They have a great atmosphere and make very good cocktails. The waitress suggested the special so we took her advise. Shortly after she showed up with 2 plates of perfection and 2 glasses of Chardonnay. It was the perfect final dinner of our vacation.

We stopped in for lunch and found some great seafood and at a reasonable price. The portions were huge. The coffee was great as well as most places in Iceland that I tried.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. It was recommended on a YouTube review for its’ chocolate cake dessert. On entering the restaurant we were greeted by a waitress who was rude to me. I said we were here to try the chocolate lava...cake and she corrected me to say it is not lava cake but chocolate cake. The other staff who served us were much friendlier and pleasant. The chocolate cake was delicious and we were glad we tasted it. We would possibly give it a second visit when we return.More

Excellent food and great service rendered five stars. When our nine year old didn’t found anything on the childrens meny, the chef made a wonderful lamb file creation that was rated five Star by my daughter. We had ”fish of the day” based on Wolf...fish and a perfect seafood pasta. Desserts made to perfection such as a variant on créme brûlée as well as a chocolate fondant and glacéd peers. We where late for the reservation but with a call 1h before easy solved the problem. Overall a relaxas and very enjoyable evening.More

We had a nice meal here on our last night in Reykjavik. The service was friendly and good but a bit disorderly at times. We were disappointed that some items we'd seen listed on the menu online were not available when we went, but we...ended up being very happy with our meals. My boyfriend ordered a seafood pasta dish and I had the catch of the day, which was Atlantic wolffish on the day. Very tasty! And the hot chocolate cake for dessert was delicious. Overall a satisfying meal in a super convenient/central location.More

Short staffed and surly. For the price or the food…not worth the visit. Mostly tourist trap. There are many other options in that immediate area.

Entrée was Lamb Filet with Lamb neck...(me) Catch of the day(her) ocean Perch. The desert was Creme Brulee. The best meal we have had so far. Highly recommend this place. Service was a little slow. Very friendly staff.More

We had high expectations, and the food was really at no disaponintment. The service was on the other hand. Lo grade of knowledge about the food and wines (could have been solvens by asking a collegue, but no), forgot one of the dishes, not at...all understanding that we wanted our side order (the forgotten potstoes) served _with_ the main course and not after, and then - after ”discussing” that - a rather grumpy attitude the rest of the meal. The food brings the grades up, but we do not recommend it.More
