“Superb!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We were just looking for somewhere to have supper, nothing fancy and wandered past this place quite by chance.

It looked good from the outside and inside was no disappointment. The food was excellent - well cooked and presented American classics with some Icelandic twists - and the service efficient and friendly.

I can highly recommend this place to anyone looking for good, no-nonsense food in Reykjavik.

“Great food, great atmosphere, great service, great prices!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

My wif and I were her on Tuesday August 21, 2012. We arrived shortly after 1800 hours and found the restaurant fairly empty. It appears that it was run by 3 young ladies who had great enthusiasm, warmth, and skill. We had the lamb skewers, the steak, The Dream dessert, a pint of tuborg, pint of gull, a fantastic hot chocolate drink, and a coffee. All of this for under 9600 kroner. The food was excellent, although we did prefer the lamb over the steak and the toborg over the gull. By 1900 hours every table was full. It appeared that most were ordering the hamburgers (which looked quite large) and the fish specials. It is a warm comfortable place, english speaking not a problem. I highly recommend this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

“Slimey burgers”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Typical slimey, deep fried food, unhealthy and poorly presented. Service was slow and prices were high.

“Icelandic version of a US burger restaurant; good for finicky kids”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

You'd never know you weren't at your favorite burger place in New York. Great if your kids aren't too adventurous with local cuisine. Not as many options for local seafood as other restaurants. What they have though is very good with great burgers and chicken sandwiches. Nice casual ambience with t.v. and music.

“Reasonably priced, great tasting food and very friendly staff”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Great little steakhouse in centre of Reykjavik. Prices are fairly cheap by Reykjavik standards and the food is of a very good standard. Steak was cooked to perfection just how I like it. Possibly the best feature of the place though is the great 1960's American diner feel it creates and the friendly and approachable staff. Well worth a visit
