We were tired after a busy day and found this place after dismissing so many others - there was only one other couple in but it was early. I had Icelandic soup and partner had the lobster, both enjoyed very much. Our mains were house burger and the steak both of which were cooked to perfection and tasted great! Service was top and staff attentive and helpful prices were reasonable aswell - would definitely recommend this place.

Average food for a pricey price. Steak was ordered medium rare, served with barely pink in sight. Lobster pizza was decent, lobster soup had 2 small pieces of lobster in it for 1,550. Atmosphere was enjoyable, service was attentive. Wouldn't recommend it for dinner.

Popped into town for a quick lunch and fell over this place. The first appeal were the prices on the menu, much more like home!! We settled for loin steak - fresh Icelandic beef which was so tender. Both steaks were cooked to perfection - and my friend has his cremated!! It was the first time my friend had had a steak cooked exactly as he liked it without being sent back. The staff were really friendly, chef sending us a complimentary plate of whale meat to try. The local brew, Gull, was equally satisfying. We sent several people from our hotel, all being amazed at the quality and value. Make this place a must visit, especially if you want to try the local delicacies.
