We made a special trip to this restaurant, recommended by Rick Stein. The langoustine soup was brilliant and the langos in butter, with all the trimmings, were even better. Slightly remote from Rekjavik but really worth the trip.

We have been there two times. Once for dinner, we had the full langoustines courses, soup and in butter, the other for lunch, just the soup as a main course. The soup is really magic, as they say. And the rest is also great.
