“Disappointing”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We had heard about the Micro Bar so on a really cold ,windy day thought a visited would be good way to wile away a couple of hours, first disappointment was that it doesn't open until 4.00 in the afternoon, as it was 2.30 when we were in the vicinity we did other things and returned - how disappointing, although the place was nearly full there was no atmosphere in the place. Plenty of choice for beers but they need to rethink the decor in order to create some atmosphere.

“Beer Sample”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Great way to check out some local brews! Ask for a sampler and try them all :) Most of them are really good although one or two do taste like nothing...

“Worth making a stop”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is a hard little spot to find but has a great selection of beer. Try the smoked lager for something different. It fills up quickly on the weekends so go early if you want a place to sit and enjoy a beer. They have an outside seating area if you find yourself there on one of Reykjavik's unusual sunny days. No food - just popcorn they microwave or a sad looking pretzel... it is a very small venue. But well worth finding it for a beer on after a long day sightseeing.

“Nice little spot”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Hidden a little bit, but worth stopping in. Varied selection of Icelandic brews; bartender very knowledgable, he even told us in what order we should drink our selections so that we could appreciate them the most! There are also soft drinks offered for the younger crowd.
