Reviewed November 14, 2013

There are two restaurants owned by the wonderful lady Iris. Went to both. One on the bay, open during the day. One in town a few blocks from the bay location for dinner. The soups are absolutely amazing and the salad bar is delicious. Prices are very reasonable (@$20pp) for Reykjavik which can be expensive. We loved it so much that we brought back people we met and they were very happy and they came back again.

“Truly the best soups I've ever had”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Beautiful view of the bay, amazing soups (I tried all four and every one was beyond delicious), even the salad bar had some tasty surprises. For ~$20 I stuffed myself, definitely worth the journey off the main strip.

“A winter warmer”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

The restaurant is open during the daytime and offer a choice of four soups plus a salad buffet for about £10. The soup was delicious and the views across the bay were fantastic.

“Fresh and delicious”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We went here for lunch. They had a choice of four excellent soups and a very fresh and tasty salad bar. We were at the location on Skulagata, and they had a nice view of the bay. What more could you ask for a relatively quick lunch place!
