We went to this place based on the tripadvisor reviews & it didnt disappoint. We opted for the tasting menu which gave us 4 starters, 1 sushi, 3 mains & a selection of desserts. Due to this the meal ended up being around 3 hours but we didnt mind. The starters they gave us were the minke whale (done as a sashimi, with a texture like tuna), the ocean perch, the rock shrimp tempura & wasabi salad. The sushi was the volcano langoustine maki and a scallop nigiri. The mains were the lightly salted cod, the salmon & the lamb. Dessert was the warm chocolate cake, the white chocolate cheesecake, lychee creme brulee & 2 sorbets.

All of the food was fresh, perfect tasting portions & delicious. The service was very good, with the staff all speaking excellent english. All up, including several drinks & coffee our meal was around $270 for 2 people which is expensive by most standards but actually on par with most Iceland restaurants. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant when visiting Reykavik.

Went there for dinner and had the tasting menu. Food was superb, and they did a wonderful job of working around food allergies. Service was excellent and very attentive.

We ended here the first night in town. Cosy interior and a nice welcome as we had not booked a table. We sat at the shusibar because the rest was fully booked - really liked that. We went for the taste menu with wine which we recommend to others! For us the cod and the salmon was a little bit dull, but tasty as well. The downer this evening was the service. It started well, but after a while they forgot the wine with new dishes and it seemed to be "to busy" to keep up with a full restaurant.

Our family tried many of the recommended restaurants in Reykjavik and we had the best meal here. It's very popular so be sure to have a reservation. The fish is wonderful. The atmosphere is casual (like almost everywhere in town), but kind of Icelandic "casual chic". It was far better than the touristy restaurants we were steered to by the harbor.
