“A gem”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We were often searching in Iceland for something between the great fine dining and the joints that served pizza and burgers. We wanted some simple meals using the great local ingredients. We stopped here for lunch and got just that. My wife had langoustine soup and I had a langoustine sandwich. Both were terrific. Service was friendly and the place was nicely decorated. They also have homemade pastries and chocolates.

“Best soup in Iceland”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Stopped for lunch and they were very busy but they still make the rounds with a menu and water. Their home maded soup and bread were the best. Their chocolate cake was rich but great. Wish we had time to go back. Recommend going there if you are in the area.

“Good Family Run - needs a bit more help?”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is a classic small restaurant on one of the main highways along the southern coast of Iceland. The food, stressing pizza and salads, is pretty good, and priced OK for Iceland. However, while the salads get served quickly, you wait forever for the pizza. The problem: they bake the pizza in a fairly small wood fired portable oven outside the building. It can only bake 2-3 pizzas at a time, and when your main menu item is pizza - this is not good. What they need is a sizable indoor professional style pizza oven. It is a shame that this affects their service, especially since the pizza is actually quite good. Bottom line: If it is crowded, pass it up - if it is not crowded, stop and enjoy.

“Hidden gem”

A hidden gem in a beautiful location. Everything tasted great and the service was excellent. We came there with lots of kids and there was something for everybody . Great pizza and wonderful cakes. Will make a trip if it just to come here again.
