This dinner earned a place in my top 10 of all time. It was a surprise "chef's choice" 7ish course menu, so it's not for picky eaters. We got some pork, smoked lamb, salmon... All kinds of goodies. Stop reading, pop open the wallet, and get ready for a life-changing meal!

After coming back for another time, I was not dissapointed. Friday evening was already booked so we came on a Monday evening. The service was excellent, fast and friendly as ever and as soon as you finish the water it will be replaced immediately. The food is still excellent and again I had to choose lamb. The desert was also... More

Top 3 dinners I've ever had. The decor, the service, the FOOD! I very much enjoyed the Icelandic horse steak (tender and so much flavor. The grilled monkfish skewers were divine. My favorite was their shellfish bisque and fresh warm bread with black lava salt. The wines and desert were also delicious (go with the coffee and caramel one)

Cannot say enough good things about this place. Had the tasting menu and tried a variety of Icelandic specialties, everything was delicious! Menu is expensive, which is par for course in Reykjavik, but found the tasting menu to actually be a pretty good value. Would definitely go back!

My husband and I dined here on our first night in Reykjavik. We enjoyed our meal so much we switched our reservation on our last night to eat here again! The grilled king crab legs, the grilled lamb chops and the meat gourmet entree were our favorites. And for dessert, the chocolate bomb was fantastic! It was a scoop of... More

Amazing food! We went for dinner and as it was our last night, we went all out! It was very pricey (but hey, what isn't in Iceland?!) but as soon as you walk in, you know you're in for a great dining experience. The decor was on point, service was attentive and when I told them I wasn't happy with... More

We had a really nice time at this place. The service was good and not to pushy. I had the Minke whale as a starter and it was cooked perfectly and presented in a really nice way. As a main I had the dry aged rib eye which had been dry aged for 35 days. It was also cooked nicely... More

I have been here once before. This is a very nice restaurant, nice wine list and the food is very good. Skip the Puffin sliders (they don't taste great and the whale on the menu - well, that's a decision or morality). Worth the trip!

We have bumped into the sign of the restaurant on the street. The restaurant is on the first floor. It is spacious and nicely furnished. The waiter meeting us was a bit grumpy and not really friendly. The rest of the staff was friendly. The food was very good. The tenderloin was perfectly grilled and very tasty. Overall a good...

We went here on the last night of our trip. We shared the chefs tasting menu and got to try a bit of everything. The food was amazing, and actually don't think this restaurant was much more expensive than any of the others. Especially with the quality of the food and the restaurant. It's in a lovely little courtyard too.... More
