“Big American Style Dinner!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Having only packed casual warm clothing for our 4 night stay in Reykjavik, we were debating not going inside the stylish Vegamot, but we decided to brave it, and I'm glad we did. After a 10 minute wait for a table for two we were sat at the back of the restaurant where it seemed to be a bit quieter from the front. The portion sizes were large and the food from the american based menu was delicious. The only reason this isn't quite a 5 rating is because the service was slow and sometimes a little inattentive, but maybe that's just the laid back Icelandic way!

“Good value for money, very tasty food, vegetarian friendly!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

So glad we found this little place. They have numerous vegetarian choices (YAY). The veggie noodles that I ordered were delicious! My partner ordered the LA BBQ chicken. He was impressed.

Chill spot, tasty beers. We almost went back a second night.

“Best ever lamb”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We are Lamb lovers and the Lamb was unbelievable! A tad pricey, but more than worth every penny, the lamb is roasted and served with a gravy like sauce. Roasted, perhaps deep fried after? potatoes and root veggies complete the dinner. We shared the portion as we were hungry for a smaller meal. It was ample. Try with Beer on Tap and a Perfect Dinner.
