The staff was friendly but slow did not seem to care that you were waiting. They took a long time to take our order and then the food took forever. The soup was great as was the pototaos but the fish was average at best....More

This place is terrific. You choose your fish, it is nicely battered and fried and comes with terrific crispy potatoes. The fish is not oily and the onion rings are highly recommended as well. For Iceland, the prices are reasonable. The service is a but...More

You have to try it when you visit Reykjavik. Love the food. We get very clear information from the staff, so we could choose the best food. For sure will come back again.

Great little place to eat a fairly affordable meal in Reykjavik. We went with another couple and there was about a half hour wait at 1900, pretty reasonable. They had three options that day; cod, tusk, and ling. They were out of redfish. Each fish...More

It's good food - but nothing special. I wouldn't go out of my way to revisit this. But if you are hungry, perfectly fine. Fish soup is pretty good though.

Fish is fresh and delicious as are the salads. Nice size and price for a child's meal. We appreciated. The clear labeling of allergens (no milk, egg, etc).

Can warmly recommend the fish and chips here. The fish is deep-fried to perfection (but you need to add salt) and the chips are tasty - sort of ovenbaked potatobits instead of regular fries and excellently spiced. My friend went for the salad and was...More

Ummm - you do know it's a SEAFOOD restaurant, yes? I bit like saying: "I know that you're a Mountaineering Centre, but my wife doesn't like heights..." ;-)

Description
We opened in December 2006. Our goal was to provide fresh and healthy food made with the best available Icelandic ingredients. There was never a question it would be all about fish, fish clearly being our best stuff in Iceland. Borrowing a bit from our neighbours the Brits to make it possible for us to serve a quick meal in bistro style, we went for the simplest of available delights: fish'n chips. But we have changed it a bit. The batter is not the regular one, but our own simplified version without eggs but lots of spelt-spelt being a more complicated carb than regular wheat and therefore crisping up better in the frying oil. Oil-wise, we stay away from Omega 6-laden vegetable oils...Because in the western diet we consume way too much Omega 6. We use rapeseed oil for its tolerance to heat and its Omega 3. And then there's the potatoes: oven-roasted in wedges, and tossed in freshly cut parsley and the locally made salt from Saltverk. We don't wanna fry them because they are high in carbs. Unlike protein-based fish, carbs soak up oil like sponges; we know that oil is essential to our diets, but we really don't wanna overdo it. Anyways, oven-roasted potatoes keep better the potato flavor and we love potato flavor. To us salads are essential to any meal heavily laden with Omega 3. Therefore we offer a selection of salads to everyone's taste. Last but not least our dips are made from skyr, technically fresh cheese, but a uniquely Icelandic milk product that for ages we have treated a bit like yogurt. It is a virtually fat-free protein base that we generously mix with good oils such as extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and sesame oil, according to what flavor we are mixing in. Everything on the menu is made in our kitchen with the best possible ingredients we can find.
