The outstanding food and the extraordinary staff made our dinner here a wonderful experience. When my wife told our server that she was supposed to limit her salt intake, the server returned to our table with the chef. He thoroughly reviewed the choices and the options for how he could cook each item, as he was very happy to vary his standard recipes & very thorough about explaining how this might (or might not) affect tastiness of each dish. We both had extraordinary fish & seafood dinners, hers with limited salt and mine with the chef's standard preparations. We left very happy and full & they were extremely pleased that everything worked so well. It's a little far from the center of Reykjavik but worth the short ride (or long walk) - and attached to a museum.

I had the seafood tasting menu and everything was very tasty, service was good too. Convenient location that shares space with the Sega Museum and next door to the Aurora Museum, so you can easily spend the whole afternoon there.

We had a fabulous meal here and it was exceptional all around! Our server, Oskar, made our evening by his joyful spirit, laughter and recommendations! The food was finely prepared with serious attention to detail from the kitchen. Cocktails were perfect - just like any high end speakeasy we would find in NYC. We were quite impressed with the food and drinks. The place is very unassuming from the outside. Make a reservation in advance - it seems to be quite a popular place!

The restaurant is just past the Old Harbour and is very easy to get to. I went with the From Sea six-course meal and it was really, really good. The halibut soup was so good I considered going back to have it again after having dinner at another restaurant. I liked most of the courses in the menu except for the dessert (Skyr with arctic thyme biscuit) but that's mostly because I don't like caramel. The dessert for the From Land menu is really interesting and good, though (the cacao soup with mandarins and sage cream). The waitstaff is very attentive and the service is excellent!

A fine restaurant set in the old harbour area that provides a good balance of innovation & traditional cuisine.
Interesting blends of flavours, good cooking and great cocktails.
Specials of the day sit alongside 6 course tasting & a la Carte menus.
Fish was particularly good. Wine flight available too with the tasting menu.
