We ordered fish, chicken and a pizza. The fish was the least favorite dish, too salty. The food and the service is very good but we had to wait for the food for about an hour.

Very busy cafe with locals but only had to wait a short time for table. Friendly service3 and the food was delicious. Salmon cooked to perfection the first night and a very cheesey pizza. Lovely

Finally had a good meal in Iceland! Wonderful fish soup. Will be enough for a meal. Lots of fish and seafood. I am glad I came here. Not a tourist trap as other places.

Pizza is incredible! Ordered a lobster pizza and seafood pizza and loved the home baked crust and amount of seafood on each one. Great ambiance and staff.

We bought one big lobsterpizza to share. It was very tastful and more and enough for two people. Therefore it was only great but also a very good value for money. Nice old house and good service.

Soup was good but the service was slow and cold, unlike the soup which was hot and warned us up on a cool day. The cafe and the town are nice enough and the latter is basically unchanged since I last passed through a half...More

We came for the pizza, which is very generous with the toppings and size. Their asparagus soup is delicious as well. Good value for money!

We had pizza and chicken salad for dinner and it was really good. The waiter we got was a bit rude and the food took forever to be served. But 4 star for the quality of the food. The most annoying part of this visit...More

As always, good food, great pizzas and lively atmosphere. Recommended alternative to the sweaty hamburgers of the N1 road shop, though of course considerably more expensive.
