“A "must visit"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here which was thoroughly enjoyable. The ambience was excellent. Great for couples and the red rose on each table was a nice touch. Food and service both excellent. Cost around £55 for two main courses and a bottle of wine. Great value for Reykjavik.

“Delicious, Relaxed, Highly Recommended!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

Had a really delicious meal here along with 5 friends. As a vegetarian, I had a lovely meal (thought I would struggle in Iceland but haven't). The others had one of the set meals to give them a flavor of local cuisine.

Service was with a smile, food was delicious and not too expensive ( cost about £40 each for a three course meal and sharing wine).

Right in the centre of the city.

Would definitely recommend to a friend.

“good food good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

We booked this restaurant on the advice of our hotel and were not disappointed. My friend had a pizza, panacotta, and half a carafe of house white wine and was very happy with her choice. I had the special 3 course menu of cream of lobster soup, rack of lamb, which in fact was two racks, and Italian sorbet with fresh fruit, together with half a carafe of house red. The soup was delicious, the lamb was some of the best I have eaten and my bill was 6550 ISK which compares very well with prices in England

“Good, but expensive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

We enjoyed our final evening meal in Reykjavik, we only went for a couple of pizzas & a carafe of house wine, both of the pizzas & the wine were pretty good, the service was also quite swift, considering the restaurant was busy, however our only gripe was the price, we were charged 9830 ISK (over £50 UK pounds) which we felt was a bit steep for what we'd eaten.
