“Fantastic food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

Our dinner was excellent, the atmosphere was very relaxing and the service was great. I had the three course dinner of lobster soup, rack of lamb and sorbet dessert and my wife had the shrimp pasta. Both were fantastic. It is pricey, but in line with the cost of food in Iceland. I recommend this restaurant.

We had pizza and tortellini and all four of us greatly enjoyed our meal. The waiter was very pleasant and everything was timely and well made.

“Great Italian in Iceland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

Great food, friendly staff, varied menu of pizza and pasta all of which was delicious. Very quaint inside worth a trip just to have a look at the décor. To avoid having to wait for a table eat before 7, gets very busy at the weekend.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Food in Iceland is generally superb so it takes a lot to produce the best meal of the trip which this was. Beautifully cooked and so tasty. The staff were great. The only thing diners need to be aware of are the prices-but don't come to Iceland for a cheap holiday! This was the most expensive meal we had (although husband did have 3 courses and wine will always bump up the price considerably) but it was worth it.

“Good food in a busy venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

Good quality and tasty food in a well decorated dining room (with a view of the pizza oven if you sit at the front). cknstantly bustling staff ensure you get what you need quickly and clear rapidly ready for the queue of walk-ins waiting.
