My son and I came for lunch. Lively atmosphere. He had the burger - great fries! - and I had the bento box, which was a delicious combo of sushi roll, slider and taco. Fun!

One of the best meals we had in Iceland. Their menu was extensive, as well as unique. The meals are a bit expensive, yet not necessarily so for Iceland. The atmosphere is very cool, and the great drinks and phenomenal food made this place amazing!...More
