Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were so happy to find some good food on our trip back from Arnstapi. We had spent almost a week exploring the Snaefellsjokull National Park, staying in a Airbnb. We were of course confined to a very limited diet, since there were no large...super markets anywhere to shop for food. We found this restaurant listed on Tripadvisor, rated number one in the capitol region. We were impressed with the finesse the chef possessed in preparing his dishes. I enjoyed the slow braised pork belly. My main course: fresh artic char, lightly charred and served on tiny chopped potatoes, portabello mushrooms, and a polenta-like base. The fish was perfectly cooked. My wife opted for: Basil Gnocchi & Scallops with Walnuts, Parmesan. And the catch of the day; Ocean Perch. We could not be happier. Finally a good meal. ~tiaotse~More

What a blast! Excellent food and service. I recommend the carpaccio and salt fish. Conveniently located in Hafnarfjörður.

The best restaurant in the Reykjavik area. Harbor view, cool bar and cocktails. The place is incredibly warm and the staff is able to give us information about the dishes and give us a really good advice. I went two days in a row. The...first time with my picky mother. I had a king prawn taco and my mom had fish of the day. The food and wine were excellent and the prices very reasonable. A comfortable atmosphere where you can chat. We were both delighted with the food and the service. The second time we went with friends. I had shellfish soup which was creamy and powerful and my husband had the fish of the day. One got the salt fish and another the char. We agreed that this was some of the best food we had ever had. A dedicated cocktail server was on hand to serve up some great cocktails. We love the chef and can't wait to visit this great place very often in the future. Food and lots of wine along with desert and cocktail was very reasonable. Thanks for us.More

Very nice place. We liked the nautic atmosphere. The food was delicious - especially the saltes cod! A bit expensive though…

This is the best place in the Reykjavik area. The location is good near the see and the food is excellent, everything is fresh and well cooked with good variety of vegetable. Therese service was friendly and of a high standard. Just a place you...all should stop at if you are in Iceland.More

Just enjoyed an unexpectedly perfect plate of fish and lentils. With parsnips cooked to perfection. I’ve cooked parsnips before and mine never taste like that. Also pickled Jerusalem artichoke. Which I’ve never licked as a vegetable until now. A great sensory experience.

We've gone to this restaurant before for lunch and we thought the food was great and we needed good food for a virtual holiday dinner at work (US company). We ordered three of the appetizers (reindeer pate, smoked arctic char, and the traditional herring on...rye bread). For a main course we order the Cod (catch of the day), lamb, and the squash. All the food tasted great and the servings were a good size. Highly recommend this great restaurant, great tasty food and reasonable price.More
