We walked past this restaurant by chance and decided to try it for dinner - we were not disappointed. It has been open for just one week and the owner/chef has got it perfectly right. The staff were attentitive and the food was great. I had the plaice and my husband had the Arctic char, it was cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths. The price was very reasonable compared to other Icelandic restaurants. If you want a good seafood meal do not go anywhere else.

Best fish in Reykjavik and beautifully done interiors. Also amazing dessert! Definitely worth a try if you're in Iceland!

The Plaice fish was beautifully presented surrounded by roast potatoes & vegetable. We started with an excellent, very flavorful fish soup, like a lobster bisque. The sourdough bread was to die for. It was served with the soup. Authentic nautical interior beautifully designed. interior feels warm & hospitable. Chef really cares about his food & source of fish. The surprise was the gorgeous salad & the vegetarian ratatouille accompanied by couscous. Very flavorful. Went here with a group for final night dinner. I highly recommend this restarting if you only have 1 choice in Reyjkavik.
