This was one of those suggested by our travel agency and as it close to our hotel (Grand) we picked this one for our first meal in the city. Very enjoyable and a wide selection. But I suggest you book as it got full quickly with locals.

Lauga-ás is a small (10 tables, seats about 42) restaurant in a suburb of Reykjavík, situated 100 metres from the city hostel, and very close to Laugardalur park and the Laugardalslaug geothermal swimming pool. Lauga-ás opened its doors on 25 June 1979, making it one of the oldest restaurants in Reykjavík. It is rather unimpressive looking from the outside, but makes a very cosy impression upon entering, and is obviously very popular with the locals.

We ate at Lauga-ás on Saturday 17 September 2011. It's my usual practice to post a review immediately after a visit; this was written the following day but I was unable to submit it until 15 October whilst I waited for Trip Advisor to update their restaurant listings! We arrived at about 20:00 without a reservation and were immediately shown to one of two vacant tables and presented with menus. The restaurant offers several choices – a selection of daily special main courses served with the soup of the day; several three course prix fixe menus; and a good selection of à la carte items.

She chose pan-fried sea trout with sautéed root vegetables and lobster sauce whilst I had the deep-fried salt cod accompanied by a selection of fresh vegetables and potatoes, both from the day‘s menu and preceded by mushroom soup. Both of us drank a beer to begin and a glass of the house wine with the main course. Unusually for us we were not able to resist the house speciality dessert, chocolate mousse layered with sponge and served with fresh fruits and berries and ice cream, which we followed with coffees.

The food was well presented and most enjoyable; service was prompt and cheerful; and the ambience was most pleasant. Lauga-ás is probably best described as up-market casual dining and succeeds admirably.

We paid ISK 13.910 (about USD 125) including taxes of which ISK 9.160 (USD 82) was for food and ISK 4.750 (USD 43) for drinks.
