“Safe dinning option in Reykjavik”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

A nice restaurant serving global food that seems popular with the local crowd. There are items on the menu that are inspired by Asian, American, or Mexican cuisines, and therefore give guests a few options as to what they want to eat on a particular day. Nice ambiance a bit upscale casual but relaxing. The food that we had was very decent, tasty and flavorful. All and all a "safe" and reasonable choice for eating out in Reykjavik if you have a hard time knowing what you want.

“Variety, Variety, Variety”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

If you have a group of people who struggle to decide what type of food to enjoy for a meal when in Reykjavik--try The Vegamot. The menus includes foods from a wide variety of influences: Asian, Italian, American and a couple I don't remember. We enjoyed a bowl of French onion soup--the bowl was so large that our wait person recommended that we share a single serving. When it was brought to the table I thought they had made a mistake and brought us two bowls--when I asked, I was told no--this was one serving split into two bowls!! HUGE!! We enjoyed two types of pasta and left with enough leftovers for another full meal--one we enjoyed the next day. The service was efficient and our food arrived promptly.

“Funky little cafe/bar just off the main street”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Have eaten here a few times over the last few years and most recently last week. It's difficult to know what's inside without going in but it's worth taking the plunge and going in.

It's a very funky little bar and cafe we ate early evening with our 1 yr old and although it's a bit cramped for a high chair there was enough space. It was quiet when we arrived but full when we left.

The important bits - food and service - were good, the menu is extensive for Reykjavik and mid range in terms of price, beers/drinks are also fairly priced for the city.

I'd recommend and advise booking, we'll certainly eat here next time we are in Reykjavik.

“Fabulous,trendy place,food excellent.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is a way popular place with tourists and locals alike. We got a table but after 7pm it was full.Book a table if you want to eat here.If you are in Reykjavik for only a couple of days eat here.The menu is extensive a real trip around the world. All the meals coming out of the kitchen looked good with big meaty things,burgers and stews. We choose mexican nachos to share-huge portion . For me a veggie burrito mushrooms,peppers,cheese,rice and kidney beans.For hubby Seafood Quesadillas with the freshest seafood of the day, king prawns and lobster in tomato basil sauce, topped with garlic sauce.Served with salad, salsa, guacamole, sour cream and nachos.2 beers 950ISK and meal ~7,000 pricey but worth it.
