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.

Visited with two friends early evening (5pm) when only 3 or 4 other tables were occupied as had previously visited later and unable to get a table (decided against 40+ min wait). Glad we didn’t wait then and wish we hadn’t revisited! Our waiter was...extremely grumpy, really felt like he’d rather we weren’t there. I ordered fish and chips and got what I thought was a children’s portion (about the size of 2 fish fingers). And to top it off there was a couple and their toddler facetiming loudly at another table!!More

While the food was very good the service was abysmal. Took quite a while to put order in and then when additional items were needed impossible to find someone (napkin) also the bathrooms were never empty.

With only a few restaurants in town everything is very busy. Plan ahead to ensure you have time to be seated. The staff was great and attentive. Large menu to choose from and all our dinners were great! My husband got the reindeer burger and...loved it, my son had the lobster pizza and it was delicious. Fish and chips was a huge portion. Recommend highly!More

While I parked the car, my wife went in to ask if they could seat us. Sure enough, the server at the bar confirmed and pointed at an empty table. I walked in a minute later and joined my wife. After 10 minutes waiting, we...asked another server if we could see a menu. She said she was ignoring us as we had been so rude to not wait until we were seated by her. My wife tried to explain that her colleague had seated us, but she wasn’t even listening. We got up and walked out… Wake up Iceland! You live from tourist money, treat us with a kind attitude.More

Best Lobster soup in Iceland. Not exaggerating. This is a cute, warm, and friendly pub/resturant/coffee house. My friend was happy with her fish and chips. I had rustic bread, lobster soup, and a beer. Delicious and not overly expensive.

Great casual restaurant for families. There's quite an extensive menu, so everyone should be able to find something they like. Their burgers were quite good, and the lobster soup was really good.

I was looking forward to the lobster soup it is beautiful and orange in all the pictures. However, when we were there for dinner it either went wrong or I got the scrapings from the bottom of the pot. It was brown and coagulated and...tasted salty and burnt. I couldn’t eat it (but was still charged for it). That’s my only complaint. The rest of the food was very good: lobster (=langoustine) sandwich was good and the lobster tempura was great. The salad was well prepared too. The atmosphere was great with locals cheering a champions’ league game. The service was prompt as well and always with a smile.More

We were looking forward to experiencing this restaurant. Sat down and owner took our order. After about 30 minutes we noticed that she left. After sitting there for 45 minutes, we asked another server if our order was placed. It was not. Left without having...a chance to eat. Such terrible service and from the owner is very disappointing.More

A very nice little place with excellent food. We split basket of langostino lobsters (kind of house specialty), fries, soup, and pasta. Large portions at great value. Beer cold. Place was packed so we saw lots of plates of great looking food go by. Staff...nice, it was all good. Worth a stop but bring your appetite.More

Doubt they take reservations. This is a very small town, and not a normal travel summer right now. They do have a website and you can email them to ask. Either way, worth any wait.
