We made reservations after being advised by our hotel concierge. We were not disappointed! Within a walking distance to our hotel our first impression was the warm, dark atmosphere. After a long day of exploring it felt nice to cozy into a booth with a nice bottle of wine. The food was excellent and we enjoyed trying new foods. Overall... More

I wanted to try the Icelandic pony steak and puffin burgers, but these are only on the dinner menu, and the evenings I was in town all tables were fully booked. The lunch menu has decent monkfish and lamb skewers (also on evening menu), and the hot brown bread with a salt crust and creamy butter was a good accompaniment.... More

From the mixed drinks to the entrees to the dessert, everything was delicious. I had the red fish and my husband tried the gourmet fish sampler, both were presented so beautifully on the plate it was almost a shame to ruin it. There was a good mix of locals and tourists so definitely not a tourist trap of a restaurant.... More

We had cod fish and grilled vegetables. Simple orders that were executed so well. When we tasted the food, it was those moments that make u feel, the way to the heart is through the stomach :) we also also had a cocktail, something with gin. It was sooooooo yummy. If you are at Reykjavik and don't might splurging a... More

They begin with the yummiest bread and whipped salted butter. The lamb, fish and lobster were all perfect. The presentation was like artwork. The dessert was beyond yummy and quite a show! They poured hot carmel over a chocolate dome with gold painted through and it melted to reveal a delicious surprise. It's a must do on any trip to... More

Nice environnement (modern). Perfect for a romantic dinner. Perfect to taste Icelandic culinary specialities. My advice: the tasting menu (4 starters, 3 main courses and a big desert). The chef proposes a selection of local fishes and meats. Just well cooked. Before the dinner, among the large choice of cocktails, taste the Porsmork: amazing! As everything in Iceland, this restaurant... More

This was the best restaurant we went to Iceland and the best I've been to in a long time. We had the tasting menu and it was definitely worth it, the decor was beautiful and service was great, even when we asked for substitutions on the menu (for nut allergy, pregnancy, and because we didn't want to eat puffin or...

Was recommended we try this while in Iceland. Tried to get a reservation for a Friday night on Monday...just not available. Settled for a lunch reservation. Made going here a priority. We had the tasting menu. It was a fabulous choice. We started with a spinach salad. Next course was tempura vegetables. Third tasting was chicken wings with a peanut... More

Based on the tripadvisor rating, we made an advance reservation in this restaurant. A good move, as walk-ins were turned away! We took the tasting menu (4 appetisers, 3 mains, 1 dessert) which was really really good. In the start, they ask if there are things you do not eat. One small caveat (and thus the rating of 4/5): 2... More
