Who knew horse would be good at all, but good at a lobster house?! Some in our group just woudl not consider eating a cute little Icelandic horse; however, they are tasty! Also delicious was the cod, salmon, mussel, and small local lobster tail combination stew. Beautiful desserts, nice wine, and good service, and great location in town. Pretty diningroom.

A wonderful meal in a very classic restaurant. The service and food were very good. We all had the lobster in garlic sauce. The lobster bisque was very flavorful.

First of all, don't expect what most would call lobster. 'Lobster' here is large, succulent langoustine, beautifully cooked and prepared, and lots of it! Very delicious - personally I preferred this to what I was expecting :-). Service was very good, the atmosphere was friendly and cozy. I'll definitely be visiting again, and I will be ordering the main 'lobster' dish for my main again.

My wife and I had the prix fix Christmas dinner -- four courses of great food. Reasonable price by Icelandic standards, though expensive by U.S. values. We sampled reindeer carpaccio, pork belly, lobster, and goose breast, ending the meal with chocolate brownie and ginger ice cream. Yum!

We were skeptical about visiting this restaurant due to the poor reviews on tripadvisor. Everyone is right about the bad service! But luckily the food was delicious. We really enjoy the food here, the cooking, less salt, freshness.. The lobster soup is yummy, traditional lobster bisque! I just wished that the waitresses will not hide near the kitchen and chat loudly. We can hear you from the dining tables. Please serve the customers and improve on the service level!!!
