“Crazy food good staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Informative waitress. Crazy complicated food. We all enjoyed the reindeer, and especially the Puffin appy. Yes Puffin but don't be scared! it was good.
The waitress was spot on with the wine choice for the reindeer, and she explained to us how every dish we ordered was made,..she was good, informative, friendly and smiley. Excellent job,.. I don't know how she remembered it all,...so complicated. The Caesar salad was good, add bacon but you have to ask . The desserts,...just because she said "pear and apple" making it sound simple, it also was exotic with dry ice, ,... I cannot even begin to explain the ingredients that went into everything, but I LIKED it! Of course pricey,..high end wine only two glasses, dinner for two, drinks we brought from the bar, two appies, Reindeer, dessert, puffin slad, and a sort of tenderloin were $225,..after tax, tipping included in everything already put on the bill. I would go again for something exotic for sure.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

We stayed at the Hilton in early November so had both dinner and breakfast in Vox which is located on the ground floor. The service was superb, the food was incredible and the value great for such an expensive city. We had the rare roast beef and the hilton classic hamburger, both were great. The breakfast selection was the largesy i have ever seen. One of the best places we ate in on holiday.

“Great Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

For what it is, 25 EUR per person, is quite cheap. Great buffet with good selection of starters, mains and deserts. The place was full when we arrived and we didnt have a reservation, but fortunately we were offered to sit around the bar area, that indeed was much better than the main area, as we were the only people there.

“The best meal I had in Reykjavik ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

We went for dinner here on a Sunday evening based on a suggestion from an episode of No Reservations. While the meal was very pricey, it was worth every penny. We had an exquisitely crafted 5 course tasting menu featuring traditional Icelandic fare, which included shellfish, puffin, and reindeer. The presentation of each dish was beautiful, and I didn't want to finish each course and move on to the next because it was THAT good. Highest compliments to the chef.

“Average buffet breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Typical breakfast buffet options- cereals, yogurts, bacon, sausage, eggs scrambled and fried (cold) plus an assortment of fruits, breads, cold cuts and cheeses. Nothing special- price $25+
