We both had the soup and salad buffet and loved it. Four different soups (two vegetarian), delicious bread, and a great salad bar. There's also a great view of the coast from the window-side tables.

This place is a popular buffet soup and salad place down by the water. Service was friendly and like in most places in Iceland you seat yourself and pay/order at the counter. Choice of 4 soups and a small salad bar with filling and healthy stuff. It comes to around $20 for the buffet so only go if you are very hungry as even though it's "cheap" for Reykjavik, it's just not worth it if you aren't wanting to eat a lot. I tried one soup even though you can have a try at all 4 and it was ok. It wasn't amazing, but it was filling and warm.

Had the soup and salad bar, started with the salads (excellent) and then moved on to the soup. Each of the four had its own amazing flavours. It is a must try!

This is a restaurant worth visiting.

The ingredients in the soups is healthy and delicious, the salat bar is very fresh and the homemade bread with hummus and garlic butter is fantastic.

The restaurant is beautiful and clean and the owner is friendly and cares for the costumers.

So it's very easy for me to recommend these gourmet soups and I'll give it 5***** with pleasure!

I dined here based on TA reviews and was not dissapointed, the menu consists of a buffet option if Soups (4 different types) and a salad bar for 1990 which for Iceland is excellent value. I tried two of the soups Mushroom and the carrott, the Mushroom is too die for ut was delicious, the salad bar has a very good selection I was not dissapointed, my dining companion had beef lasagne which looked very nice indeed. The restarunt offers complementry drinking water. The view over smokey bay is stunning probably the best view in town.
