“Good Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

This was recommended to me by someone on Reddit. It has a good menu and the food is very good. However it is very expensive (£35 for a main dish), so go with the mindset that you are treating yourself!

“A Magical Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We arrived without a reservation on a very busy night. Our guide pleaded with them to take us and they led us upstairs to a board room and brought us some bread to nibble on. A short time later we were seated in the upstairs dining room. The langostines and the langostine pizzas were fantastic! When we left the restaurant, it had been raining and there was a double rainbow. On the ride back to our guesthouse, we followed the rainbow. The sky was magnificent and the lighting on a field of Icelandic horses was magical.

“Excellent service and even better food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

During the summer season, you should try to make a reservation as this place is very popular and deservedly so. Right from the start, the staff made us feel welcome. They are extremely nice. We wanted a couple of margaritas to start. However, after about 15 minutes, they brought us 2 margarita pizzas instead of the drinks. They felt so bad for the mixup, that they invited us to make our own margaritas. We had a ball. It was a lot of fun. And then they insisted on not charging us for the drinks. The appetizers, Langostine dinner and desert were absolutely fantastic. My wife is a vegetarian and they made her a superb grilled asparagus salad. It was huge and delicious. The owner is a wonderful woman and is a pleasure to speak with. This was my favorite restaurant in Iceland.
