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.

From the amazing tostadas to the fantastic decontructed dessert this place cleverly blends the modern with the familiar and with such gusto. We had the six course tasting menu - Festival of Mexico and were amazed by the light, zesty and punchy flavours. It was...a stunning celebration of Mexican food at its best but using the fabulous food of Iceland and all served by the impeccable Embla Rut. Thanks for a fabulous time. The best Mexican outside MexicoMore

Heiðrún was amazing, as the place and the food. I’ll definitely come back. There’s a lot of veggies options and fish as well. And the location helps a lot.

I went to Tres Locos for a birthday dinner and drinks. We ended up spending half the night there and came back for more - 2 days later. It had a great atmosphere. The food was excellent and the Pornstar margaritas are one of the...best margs I ever had. Bjoggi was our server and he was great. He was super friendly and attentive. He even surprised me with a birthday treat at the end. This was my 5th time in Iceland and I will definitely go back to this restaurant.More

First of all Hildur Arna served us if I could give her a million stars I will!!! We are a group of friends from the Island of Puerto Rico and we had a blast!!!! Her service was perfection!!!! Also the drinks can I say the...drinks are also perfection!!!! They for sure know how to make a drink. Margaritas 10/10 food 10/10. And we were not expecting it to be honest since a few of us live In Texas and know what authentic Mexican food tastes like. But def will come back.More

From Texas and was concerned cause our Mexican food is the best but from the moment we walked in, Hildur was incredible. She was a joy, a pleasure and we will come back every time we’re in Iceland. The food was incredible but the service...was UNMATCHED. Hildur, you’re a treasure to Tres Locos!More
