We stumbled across this place by accident, and boy how surprised were we. Pleasant and chatty staff, who were happy to recommend their favourite places in Reykjavik. Seafood is served fresh from the sea. Jumbo Prawns were tasty and prepared to perfection with pickled red onions and barley. Lobster soup was delicious. Main courses were fish mainly. We had freshly caught cod fillet with chilli, curry, leek, green apples, mango chutney, cream, white wine, parmesan and Icelandic potatoes with green salad that was out of this world. Desert was very nice deconstructed apple crumble. Pricey but it’s worth every penny.

We visited here for lunch and had two fish pan meals, Icelandic Plokkfiskur and the Arctic char. Both were exquisite and sizeable. Also very reasonably priced in Reykjavik terms

Went here on recommendation of a friend for our first night in Reykjavík. Dinner was good, but I had better and fresher at other places on our visit. Note I am very fussy, as my dad is into fishing as a hobby so I am very familiar with the "just off the boat" taste and this wasn't it. I chose the Wolffish so maybe the creamy sauce killed off the flavours. My partner had the cod and enjoyed it alot. Lovely helpful staff.

We had a fish stew and a lobster salad, both really tasty and filling. The stew came with a pile of salad and rye bread and was really good value and very tasty, the salad had a really good garlic bread with it. Good to see so much salad. Very good flavours. We went on our last day and would have gone more than once if we had found it earlier
