We ate here just after arriving in Reykjavik, and the food was so delicious that we came back on our last night in Reykjavik. My husband, two teenage kids and I ate a wide assortment. I had lamb filet for dinner and lamb soup our first day for lunch; both were excellent, the best lamb I've ever had. The filet... More

The soup was mostly broth (a greasy one at that), with a few cubes of root vegetables and bits of gristly lamb. For the equivalent of $20 CAD... More

We ate twice at this restaurantl. The food is very good. Try the fish and chips. The crust was tasty and the fish cooked to perfection. Good value in a high priced city.

Even though I was in Iceland, I don't eat any seafood. Surprisingly this place had a great burger and fries. I was staying at the hotel Frón so the location was perfect, and they served dinner until 11:00 pm. This was nice after coming back late from the Blue Lagoon.

I went to this typical scandinavian restaurant in Reykjavìk attracted by its cozy and chic look. The place was lovely indeed and the staff was very kind and helpful. I had a typical icelandic beer (very light and fresh) and a lamb fillet with vegetables and roasted potatoe with a butter sauce. Everything was fine but the lamb was absolutely... More
