Description: Good restaurant and bar in the heart of Mosfellsbaer. Short walk from Hotel Laxnes and next to the largest super-market chain in Iceland. Great quality food, the best place in town to watch the sports and live music on fridays. We have three large HD projectors and 4 televisions so you can enjoy your favorite sports to the fullest. Fully equipped bar with a great icelandic beer selection.

Like the other reviews, the exterior of this Sports Bar should not put you off. The staff and locals are very friendly offering a great selection easy, comfort food in a relaxed environment. After initially popping in for a few drinks, we stayed to watch an entire Icelandic Premier League football game on the big screens put on, eating a HUGE pizza, costing approx. £16 - very reasonable, we couldn't finish it!
Our visit wa a nice change to eating in the more formal restaurants in the surrounding areas and Reykjavik.

The food here was nice and reasonably priced, as were the drinks. The only downside was the service was a bit slow, but as we weren't in a rush it wasn't too much of an issue. We saw couples, groups and families in there and it definitely caters to all

We ate here as it was about a 5 minute walk from our hotel, and on presenting the room key you receive a 10% discount. Don't be put off by the exterior appearance it's much nicer inside! We had a starter between us and then the pizza and ultimate burger. The food was good and came out nice and hot. Plentiful too - we couldnt eat it all! For the money, it was good pub food and that is all we wanted at that time. Service was good - we were one of the only tables in there at the time with a few locals at the bar, but did not feel uncomfortable at all as they were all very friendly.

We would never have found this bar if it hadn't been for TripAdvisor and, if we had, we wouldn't have gone in (the basis of the outside appearance). We've just got back from there and we're VERY glad we went, so thank you to the people who wrote the reviews!
Yes, there were 6 TV screens showing football (!) but there was no sound so it wasn't actually that obtrusive. The decor was functional but pleasant enough, the staff were charming and spoke excellent English and the food was great. My husband had a top quality home made burger (with bacon, cheese, tomato ...) and I had as good a fish dish as I've had ANYWHERE - absolutely delicious. That + a small beer and a huge sparkling mineral water came to around £22. We thought it was excellent value for the quality of food we had.
For heaven's sake, walk PAST the KFC, Dominoes and Subway and give it a try if you're in Mosfellsbaer. We can really recommend it.
