Don't get me wrong: There is a wide variety of dishes at this restaurant. However, if you have a craving for steak, it;s going to come from a horse. We just couldn't do it.

The pork barbeque was sweet but good. The mushroom soup was excellent. Americans will like the fries. Beware ordering a side of mayonnaise. You will receive a mountaintop of the creamy sauce, worthy of a volcano!

Quiet place and nice location. We had the soup of the day (warm and tasty) and excellent dish of lamb, one of the best in a long time. Dessert was local and good. Bit expensive, but hey, this is Iceland.
