“3 times in 3 days :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Arriving at the restaurant at 21h10, we've been informed that the salad bar were closing at 21h but that the kitchen was still opened and the menu available.
Actually what happened is simple : we've been welcome by the owner, who has been one of the best waiters we've ever met. He was so passionate by his restaurant, and so willing to make us discover his food, that he ended up by bringing us two whole plates full of samples of each dish of his salad bar. Everything was well presented, super tasty and pretty unique. Sometimes Indian, sometimes western, sometimes African. We ordered as well the famous Feta Chicken. The chickenitself, the cooking, the seasoning and the presentation were absolutely amazing. All the recommendations the owner gave us, were accurate and we followed his advice with a lot of confidence.
But the food is not the only interest of this restaurant: the staff is really enjoyable too, also the decoration and atmosphere is relly peacefull, and nice.
All the ingredients are gathered to spend a unforgettable time there.
We had only 3 days left in Reykjavik when we discovered this place, so we went there twice again. One more dinner and one time for lunch.
You must try it ;)

“Delightful in many ways.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

Lovely decor, comfortable seating, easy-going staff and delicious food can all be found at Kryddlegin hjortu! The buffet was good, but the vegetarian lasagna is amazing! The waiter was fun and very helpful. It's not filled with tourists. I highly recommend this one. Don't miss the ladies room downstairs, it's as colorful as the restaurant. It's
delightful in all ways!!!!

“A gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

The food is of good quality with many healthy options. The service is excellant and you are made to feel very welcome by the staff. I personally feel the prices should be higher therefore you get very good value for money. We were surprised to that everything is organic. The decor and atmosphere is also quite soothing. We have been here for dinner twice already and I would highly recommend this place to all.

“Reasonable value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

One branch of this restaurant didn't seem to be open but we went for lunch thinking it was vegetarian.
Not everything is vegetarian but there was an excellent soup and then a salad bar, to which one could go more than once. The staff were very friendly and helpful and, in a city where things are expensive, we felt we had value for money.

“Best kept secret in Reykjavik”

You must go for dinner and try the chicken itis divine. If you go for noon they serve soup buffet. The restuant has very relaxed atmosphere. If you like something different you like this place.
