It's a really cosy place with nice atmosphere. Great soup, don't do the burgers, they are boring. Good and pleasent waiter. fairly priced.

We had a reasonable dinner here. Food was fine but not memorable. Polite and quick service. Limited selection of alcoholic beverages. Parking was quite limited. Would I go back? Sure. Is it a must-come-back? No way.

This restaurant is probably the best you can get in in Hafnarfjördur. It is placed in one of the oldest houses in town, and is pretty cosy and welcoming. The service is of average standard, especially over the tourist season. Food is alright, but nothing more. Make sure you ask what meat is served in the daily steak offer. My sister asked, and it was horse meat :-) Tasted good though.

Two meals, one of which was just a salad amounted to ~$44 CDN - again for Icelandic standards, price was reasonable; staff were efficient and pleasant.
