We found this restaurant on Google Maps as it was near our hotel. We went around 18-1900 on a Saturday with no reservations, we only waited a few minutes before we were seated. They were VERY busy. (Read on for details) We each ordered the...Braised Lamb Shank (pictured) with veggies + potato mash and a few glasses of red vino. We didn’t know but the meal also came with a salad / soup / bread bar, with lots of items. The Lamb shank was HUGE, unfortunately neither one of us could finish. It was cooked perfectly and very delicious. (Lamb is considered a delicacy in Iceland, as we learned, they are all free- range, as such, very tender and succulent meat. Our meal was amazing. Unfortunately, the main negative, the tables were situated so close to one another the servers, let alone patrons, had a hard time navigating between the tables and chairs. We were constantly being bumped into as our table was in the middle of the row, making for an uncomfortable dining experience, considering what we paid. Overall, would return, but would make a reservation and / or ask for a table against the wall.More

In this restaurant they serve lunch buffet on good price . It’s good way for tourist, because you’ll get salad, bread, soup, warm dishes for one price. We tried really delicious lamb there.

We came in to try the brunch buffé but have NEVER gotten as horrible food ever. We have gone far and wide and had some "intresting" brunch before. They are charging over 30$ per person and ita NOT worth it. I cauld go into great...detail about the food but it would take to long.More

This was disapointing. The worst seafood pasta, with no real shellfish seafood, just some white cod fish and dominating salmon flavor. Found one small shrimp. And the hamburger had couple of human hair in it. Very unpleasant. I don´t know whats going on with this...place. I will not go there again. Staff really did not care and did not do anything to make up for the bad experince. This used to be an ok place.More

I really did not like when I was ordering that the Waiter was asking me how much I ate at the salad bar and I was not supposed to take the main course on a take away. When I went to the restaurant I thought...I did not need to worry about the amounts you can eat at a salad bar I just wannted to eat 2-3 plates and also 25% of the salad bar was empty when I went there. So I did not enjoy eating at the resturant I was stressed out eating my main course feeling like a crimminal. To tourist that are visiting iceland I would recommend some other places with either better prices or quality.More

So at the last minute we wandered in on valentines night to have a steak and leg of lamb. First surprise was oh the salad bar and soup is included with those meals have what you like. So we did soup was lovely, fresh baked...bread and salad. Then the mains turned up and they were both excellent. I took a picture mid way through, they were large portions and we struggled to finish. Had no room for desert. Would recommend, the burgers, ribs and fajitas delivered around us were also big portions and everyone enjoyed there meals. Can’t recommend it enough.More

Not a restaurant that necessarily caters to tourists, more a place where locals go. Menu with something for everyone although I kept going back to the "fish of the day" each of the three times we ate at Askur. The fish was prepared perfectly and...this meal includes the soup and salad bar which had excellent mushroom soup and homemade bread. We had different servers on each visit but everyone was friendly and the service was top-notch. Food was delicious and reasonably priced for Iceland. If you are staying at the Hilton or one of the nearby hotels within walking distance of this establishment it's a no-brainer go-to for dinner or lunch.More

We visited Brasserie Askur on our final night in Reykjavik. All of the other eateries had offered lovely food but seemed incredibly expensive. Brasserie Askur was within a 5 minute walk of our hotel and it had been recommended to us. The atmosphere was lovely...in the restaurant, the music was incredibly calming and the staff were very pleasant and friendly. The food we received was divine! By far the best we’d had whilst in Iceland. There was a huge range of options on the menu and everything was cooked to perfection. The cost of our meals was half that of what we had paid at other establishments, during our stay. If we were to travel to Reykjavik again, we would 100% visit Brasserie Askur.More

My husband and I just got done eating at a restaurant we were really unsatisfied with and we really wanted a dessert and a hot drink. This place was absolutely phenomenal. I made fun of my husband for getting the boring apple pie but his...turned out to be even better than my chocolate cake. It literally melted in your mouth! The hot chocolate was so rich and creamy. I definitely recommend going here for some dessert!More

Just over the road from where we were staying, nice range of dishes on the menu and they had a salad bar with great soups and breads. Was not overly expensive and was a great find.

We ate here twice during our 6 night stay in Reykjavik and enjoyed both meals immensely. The menu choices are varied and offer good choices for any palate. The drawback is the service, which almost seemed ambivalent to diners being in the restaurant. Even this...annoying problem would not keep me from returning.More
