The place is warm, cosy and very homely. The food served is typical Icelandic dishes. The staff also is very welcoming and they use fresh products. Their mussels in white wine sauce is absolutely lip-smacking.However, its too overpriced

We loved every bite. The onion soup was delicious. The puffin served in marinated strips with a tasty sauce. The breast of guillemot was very good too. Fun waitress too.

I found out about this place when Googling for restaurants that served traditional Icelandic dishes. I probably wouldn't have found it simply by walking past, as it's not located on a major thoroughfare (although Reykjavik being a fairly small city, it's only about a five-minute...More
