“Basic restaurant in Grundarfjordur with pricy meals”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Basic restaurant that offers basic cuisine in Grundarfjordur. I had and Icelandic soup that was no bad. One of my friends had a burger that, considered the price, was pretty expensive. Local is decent but when we ate there there was this projector that was showing a episode of Grey's Anatomy with very loud volume (I was sited 2 metres from the amplifier).
Dinner was decent, I ate the soup because the rest was pretty expensive.
Pro: decent dinner, nice forniture.
Cons: kinda high prices, basic cuisine.

“Good restaurant, frequented by locals”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

It's basic, but it was one of the few restaurants recommended by the hotel in the area. This is the first place I tried the local Icelandic langostine, which was delicious!

“Delicious food you may find elsewhere”
Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

We stopped for lunch and had been a bit disappointed. The food was ok, but simIlar to the food you'll get at the many petrol stations in Iceland.

The good thing was finally to get free WiFi.

“Ate there twice!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

First visit I had their little "buffet" style which served Icelandic traditional fish casserole and the second time I went I had their cod. Both meals were yummy!

“great little cafe”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

tasty food at resonable prices and you get to meet the locals. It's also in the town of Grunfarfjordur and we walked around the harbor after lunch and saw some seals
