Had a little trouble finding this place (it is hidden away a little down an alleyway) but we were glad we had found it - the decor of the restaurant downstairs where we were seated was lovely - totally Icelandic and containing local wood, moss, slate etc. I thought it had a lovely atmosphere and was really looking forward to the meal. However, much of the recent comments from other reviewers on here are spot on: the restaurant is good, it's just not good enough to justify the cost. To start hubby had the three mini burgers - lobster (he loved), puffin (he did not like at all, whereas I thought it was okay - meat had some toughness and bite and tasted quite fishy and salty) and minke whale (hubby hated it, I thought it was really nice, although a very intense, strong meat). The main problem for me with the mini burgers (apart from the fact it was about £15 and they were mini) was that they had covered each one in the same pepper sauce, making it very hard to taste the actual meats you had ordered this dish to try. I had the minke whale which I really liked once I got used to the very strong taste (guiltily), but again, I would not be happy charging £15 for. For the main, hubby ordered the horse (we thought we'd get all the unusual meats out of the way in one meal), and I ordered the trio of lamb, beef and duck. We ended up swapping meals as hubby did not like the horse at all, which did have a slight disinfectant taste to it with a bitter after taste. The trio of meats was quite small. Accompanying the meals were roasted veg of mini corn, mushrooms and spinich, which were all incredibly salty and tasted as if they had been fried not roasted, and what seemed to be frozen curly fries, which were pretty cold when we got them. A shame really. I had creme brule for desert which was nice but no better or worse than one you would have for half the price in the UK. For two starters, two mains and one dessert with no drinks (tap water), our bill was £95. I enjoyed certain aspects of the meal and certainly the decor, but it just wasn't worth that amount of money.
