I came here on a Saturday night as a single female traveller. I like to get dressed up for dinner, even when by myself,and this was a busy, buzzy, stylish place, with great people watching!
I opted for the Taste of Iceland menu, which is four amazing courses.
While waiting for my wine, I was served an amuse bouche of apple, mayo and crumb. This sounds unassuming and quite bizarre, but was remarkable in terms of texture and flavour. And it got me excited about what was to come!
The starter of langoustine and cat fish with mussel sauce was a multi/texture delight. One of the nicest things I've ever tasted,even when compared with Michelin starred restaurants in the Uk. This was followed by a plate of shag, puffin,and minke whale, with a berry sorbet. Again, a perfectly cooked plate with a variety of surprising textures and flavours. The whale in particular was superb, despite my ethical concerns. The main course was a number of cuts of lamb, and again was superb, although I was starting to flag a little! Dessert was a salty, berry brownie, with chocolate mousse, a rhubarb compote and berry skyr. The surprising salty flavours really added to the complexity of this plate.
I can't recommend this restaurant enough!
