I have been to this restaurant a number of times through the years and I will keep coming back. The food there is consistently very good, but the real attraction is in the unique dishes they offer and the comfortable feel of both the place and the food. The dishes they offer include many types of seafood as well as meats, some of which are unusual, such as sea birds, horse and whale. But it is not just the ingredients that are unique - they also make the ordinary seafood very tasty while still making it feel non-fancy and comfortable. For example, their gratins and cream sauces are very good.
When I went there last time, I decided to have a meat night. I started with the smoked puffin, which is very good. It was served in thin strips with mustard sauce and the distinct flavor of the puffin meat, the smokey enhancement and the subtle mustard sauce worked very well. For main course, I had the Guillemot and it was spectacularly good. It was cooked absolutely perfectly - quite rare - and was tender and tasty. The sauce complemented it very well. For desert, I had the Skyr Brulee, which was good, but they can do better with it - for one, the sugar was not properly caramelized on top.
As noted, I will keep going there in the future as I have been doing for many years. I highly recommend this restaurant to tourists visiting Iceland as it gives a better insight into Icelandic food than many restaurants and it is very good.
