“One of the best meals I've ever had”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Beautiful location, with high end dining & an ambitious chef.
We were allowed the time to savour our meal, with a couple of complimentary courses added in. The portions were satisfying without being too much, which allowed the innovative flavour combinations to shine.
I had the langoustines with smoked onions - a revelation! The beef tenderloin was possibly one of the finest courses I've ever had. Sublime, and having the chef serve the course & explain his food philosophy was a special touch.

Truly a meal to remember.

“Best meal of my life thus far”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

I will not be able to do a review justice as I am not a poet. Chef Sigurður and his team created by far the best tenderloin I’ve had, and I grew up on Alberta beef. The complimentary charcuterie and amuse-bouche were divine and dessert left me with a grin I couldn’t hold back.
My biggest goal for a return to Iceland is to bring friends or family on my next trip, and I will be sharing this experience with them.
