“lack on inspiration and drive”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We were on a road trip and passed this village/restaurant.
The interior is just ok. Not attrative to have a pleasant evening/meal.

The waitress is also ok, but she does just her work and noting more (no drive to please guests)... you notice that she don't like her job. I think that she can be a great lady, but not in the setting of being a hostess. (She was on the phone with her boyfriend for a long time during our visit...)

The food lacks inspiration. The dishes are sloppy. The fish was ok but not tasty (creamy salty sauce): after a few bites i had enough of it (far too salty).
They don't have the wines that are presented on the menu. There was one wine available... don't take it, it's not worth the money.

in short: no value for the money

“Great for a late night!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This pub is rather average and plain, however when the band comes in around midnight the party gets started and the locals flood in. It becomes a fun atmosphere when everyone is dancing and singing. the food wasn't great and rather expensive for what we got and the was minimum 900 ISK.
