“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

My partner and I decided to invite our friend for lunch on our last trip to Iceland. I found the place to be located in a very beautiful area outside the city centre by the geothermal beach. The restaurant has glass surroundings with modern design overlooking the sea. The staff very extremely friendly and accommodating. The food is of very good quality and the menu has a great selections. It is a great place to meet friends or family, or if travelling its worth the detour.

“Brief stop for coffee and a chat with a friend”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Lovely clean restaurant adjacent to the beach. We only stopped for coffee, but when next in Reykjavik I intend trying it out.

“Great food and lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Highly recommend this restaurant. Went there with my husband and three year old daughter. She was able to run around outside all she wanted and was given crayons and paper to draw on and a glass of milk when she went to ask for it.

“Nautholl is cold”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Service was impersonal, premises are Scandinavian, white and rectangular, tables aligned. Large windows gave view to a large parking place.

Completely full at lunch, mainly young people ordering hamburgers from a menu advocating healthy courses. People are still living in the pre-2008 crash style-over-substance era.

The blue ling of the day was fine, but the accompanying mashed potatoes were cruelly peppered and the vegetables overly panfried, €16. Chicken salad at €19 was nondescript.

Acceptable, but next time I shall go elsewhere.

“Always good food”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Nauthóll is a 30 minute walk from my home so we visit there often (with family, friends and co-workers). Beautiful environment, always good food and almost always good service.
