Food was really good - generous portion sizes and really nice food. Pricey? Yes. But so is everywhere in Iceland. If you’d like to dine in a nice atmosphere, come here.

A little overpriced but good food and service. We spent about $80 USD on two Irish coffees, one regular coffee and two breakfast meals. Everything was wonderful though
