We came here after trying to check into our hotel a few doors down (Fosshotel Baron) and being told the room was not ready yet. We had been on an overnight flight and already to the Blue Lagoon and were ready to relax a little. This place was a perfect place to land. We sat by the window that looked out onto the water and had food and beer. I opted for a pulled pork open faced sandwich with slaw and it was quite tasty. My friend went for the burger and it was one of the best seasoned burgers I have ever tried. Don't be afraid to enter the doors and walk up the stairs. Once you reach the top the place is very inviting. Order at the bar and find a place to relax.

I had the goats cheese with figs which was enjoyable though for the price probably wouldn't get it again. Excellent atmosphere.

We came for an evening drink on a Sunday. I don't know if it's like this every week but it was really busy and there was live music. A really nice atmosphere with lots of young trendy Icelanders.

They have lots of Icelandic beer on tap. The Einstök ales in particular were great. They also had Mikkeller.

Stayed at the Foss Hotel next door and this place was recommended by a few people. Its in a high end hostel and needless to say it was great food. Nice staff, great beers...we were there during a scottish festival and they had Icelandic twists on British and Scottish favorites.
