I have previously given this restaurant a good rating, but have to take that down now. I had lunch there with 4 of my friends and the quality of food and service was not what I expect. One of us did not get her food at the same time as the other and we were almost finished with our when... More

Restaurant was recommended by our Hotel. Since we had been travelling all day, we wanted something close by, easy to find, which it was. We were offered a table near the door but since it was blustery and cold, we opted for a table upstairs. The menu was eclectic, something for everyone. Service was very efficient, but they did not...

We celebrated my friend's birthday there and connected it with a dinner. I ordered veggie burger which was served with a great looking salad with tangerines. I couldn't wait to taste this gem but got quite disappointed as there was almost no taste. Some spices would definitely help. Otherwise, the service was friendly and rather quick, so I might give...

The service was friendly albeit lacking attentiveness when it came to clearing plates and dessert. I had the pasta which was very average. Others at table enjoyed their food.

Very nice interior - lots of seating on 2 levels. Fancier than a bistro or casual spot, but not pretentious at all and average prices for iceland. Friendly and quick service, but we were not rushed. I had a burger which tasted great but I would consider average, coming from nyc. My friend had the shellfish pasta which looked awesome!!... More

Ordered nutsteak for one person, the only reason for us being there. When all other dishes were made and our appetizer eaten, we were told they did not have it. No reason was given and no compensation offered. Terrible service.

This was a great find through trip advisor. It was easy to find - just off one of the main streets and we got a table straight away - it did get busier after 8pm but they dealt with waiting tables very quickly. There was a great choice of options on the menu from burgers to chicken to noodles etc... More

We decided to try Vegamot after a long day touring the Golden Circle and we were not disappointed. The menu is a composite of American classics combined with more local produce/dishes. My wife had the Thai noodles with chicken, which she said were delicious. I sampled the Vegamot burger, which was really tasty, with its crispy Parma ham and bernaise... More

Initial customer service was good, we were found a table in a busy restaurant, but then left alone for 15 minutes before our order was taken. Drinks took another 15 minutes which sat on the bar for a further 5 before I grabbed them myself. Food arrived about 40 minutes after we ordered and although tasty, a rather simple pizza... More

Had the Japanese chicken salad and it was great. The people are also super nice! I'll will definitely be checking this place out more in the sun as well as trying out their cocktails.
