“Lovely fresh food”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We found this place on the first night, it was so good be went back again the next night! The menu is limited to a choice of 2 specials (fish or lasagne) or the buffet. We had the fish which was specially prepared for us, and came with bread from the buffet. The portion was small but adequate and very fresh and tasty. The buffet was a choice of 4 soups and salad. This is a great restaurant for vegetarians. The owner is an eccentric character which shows in the décor, there are Zen like objects and musical instruments dotted around and there is a black covered chandelier in red toilets. even the mens.

“Hearty and healthy, great lunch buffet for the health concious”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

This restsurant is close to the oceanfront where the Solfar is, in between Höfdi and Harpa music hall. Just behind the Kex hostel and in the same building as the indian embassy in Reykjavik. This is a bit out of the way but if you are visiting some of the above mentioned attractions keep this restaurant in mind. They offer a very nice soup and salad bar with a choice of different soups and homemade bread, hummus, pestos in addition to a good and fresh looking saladbar. Price is reasonable. Service is attentive.

“Friendly and great food”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

This restaurant was right opposite our hotel so we just popped in as we were late back from an excursion.
We were welcomed by a very enthusiastic hostess/waitress who made us feel at home and chatted with us several times about our holiday.
They have a buffet to help yourself to soup and salads - all very healthy. We chose the lasagne - which was great - encouraged to help ourselves to bread and water as often as we liked. But the most amazing thing was the chocolate cake we had for desert - best I have ever tasted. The meal was good value too.

“Lovely restaurant with a good view”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

My wife and I went in for lunch on our first day in Reykjavik. The salads and soup looked good but we went for a very tasty beef lasagne with salad and bread. With a couple of hot drinks it came to about £20 for the two of us. A comfortable place with very friendly staff. Highly recommended.
