Friends and I were in Reykjavík for a few days around (US) Thanksgiving. We'd had a great day and spent part of the evening wandering around, intending to go to Icelandic Fish & Chips (which I remembered and loved from my trip last year) for dinner. Well, being New Yorkers, we just did not consider the possibility that they'd be closed at 9 PM.
So we wandered along Myrargata a bit, and found this place. Surprise! We had the most unique and delicious Thanksgiving dinner ever. (TIP: if you're staying at the nearby Reykjavík Downtown Hostel, you get an HI discount here - just remember to bring the voucher on the back of the maps they have at the hostel's front desk.) In terms of dining preferences, we ran the gamut from vegetarian to "YOLO, let's try the whole Icelandic zoo," and the menu suited us all. From beetroot salad to reindeer meatballs to horse (yes, horse), every dish we ordered was spectacular - beautifully presented, perfectly prepared, and delicious. It's a beautiful space inside, too!
Our server John was particularly helpful: he gave us extensive recommendations about going out in Reykjavík - he actually took the time to write out 2 sides of a page of notes! and his advice was all spot on. Much of the awesomeness of the rest of our stay was thanks to him!
Plenty to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. This place rules!
