Book here on a whim without looking at any ratings, and we’re very happy with the selection. We got the 3 course taster menu which was made up of a starter of Atlantic char, prawn tempura and beet tataki. Main course was beef with fries...and a mushroom glaze, desert was a chocolate fondant. The whole meal was relaxed, all the wait staff were attentive and the food was delicious. Could not fault service or taste, and would thoroughly recommend - not cheap but worth the moneyMore

We had an amazing experience for a special birthday dinner! The wait staff was attentive and pleasant. The meal was fantastic! Two of us had the traditional Lamb Chops and they were likely the best we’ve ever had! Dessert included a soufflé and sorbets. A...perfect ending to a perfect dinner! We will be back the next time we visit from America!More

Came at the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. The atmosphere was modern yet with uniquely Icelandic features (tables, fixtures, walls). Service was very helpful, with several English speaking waiters; the wine recommendation was excellent. Ordering the Chef Sampler was a good choice....We were served puffin, shrimp, cod, and duck based appetizers, with lox, lamb, and ram samplers from the main course options. Dessert was a variety trey of sorbets, fruits, ice cream, and pastries. The right amount of food for a sampler, not too light given its cost (about $100-120), and not too heavy. The dishes were locally sourced ingredients simply and expertly prepared. Each meat was prepared at just the right temperature. The sauces for each dish tended to balance out other flavors. The meal was expensive compared to say, an ordinary meal, so budget appropriately. If you want a high class dinner and a sample of what the best of Iceland has to offer in the culinary world, you must go here.More

I love the steak but usually eat it with authentic or original taste without seasoning. First time I tasted the rib-eye seasoned, in a good way. What’s amazing in this restaurant is that their house wine is very famous Italian Amarone wine producer Zenato. As...Italian wine amateurs, don’t miss this restaurant to try.More

Very stylish setting. Fantastic service. Somewhat limited menu, especially for vegetarians (though the peanut steak was pretty good), but the food was creative and tasty. Expensive, but so is everything in this country.

We happened to come to this place by accident. Very classy place and so was the dinner (well everything in Iceland is $$$). Our dinners were pre-fixe. Everything was deelish! We sat at the bar downstairs and we chatted with the bartender who was friendly....Great cocktails, too!More

This was an all round excellent dining eperience. Wait staff was right on spot! Food a little pricey but WELL worth it. We had a "Tomahawk Steak" that maybe the best we have ever had. This is a don't miss opportunity!!! Although we are only...in Reykjavic for a week, we have already planned a second visit to try another of their mouth watering fare. They have sister restaurant that we plan to visit, The Fish Market.More
