“Very good horsesteak..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We went to this restaurant because our mother wanted to try the horsesteak and boy was it good.. We were ten people and had a nice table. We had food, dessert, wine, beer, coffee and still it was good value for the money. Nice service too. My mother loved the steak and so did the rest. We will be back.

“Favourite place to eat in Iceland.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Great food. The horsesteak was really good, and the huge Trollburger tastes like a good, 250g burger ought to. Great staff and atmosphere as well.

“Fantastic value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Iceland is not a cheap place to eat but this restaurant gives you great value. Their whale steak is amazing and their Troll burgers are huge. Staff very welcoming. Run by a young couple whose philosophy is to keep prices down in order that families can still enjoy a meal out even in times of economic recession.

Very nice restaurant with good services. Very busy. I had whale steak. It tasted just like beef. My other half had lobster pizza. Price is good as well.
