“Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

On our first night in Reykjavik we went into this restaurant. The staff were friendly and showed us to a table and brought menus.

We ordered two local beers and these were really nice.

We had been warned that eating out was expensive and that going for a 'daily special' might be a good idea so we ordered the salmon with potatoes and vegetables.

Two pieces of salmon, some potatoes, lettuce leaves and a tomato arrived at IKR3250 - very expensive for what it was although nothing wrong with the food.

Not much atmosphere in the place and we were the only diners, based on the price we now know why!

The toilet was downstairs and this was fine, clean and tidy.

I wouldn't go back here and there are plenty of other better places to eat which are less pricey

“Good place in the heart of town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

We were looking for something relatively light -- both on the stomach and the wallet -- and this place fit the bill perfectly.
Very warm and welcoming atmosphere and vibe.
Good food, good bar, excellent service.
Well located, right in the heart of the shopping streets.

“Delicius Fish & Chips and Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

Yes, this is a very nice place to go to eat something simple and tasty like fish and chips together with a nice cold Islandic beer.

The service is very good & friendly, and the whole place has a good and calm atsmosphere.

Warmly recommended.

“I have no idea how it got 4.5 stars on tripadvisor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013 via mobile

We were staying next door at Hotel Fron and so gave this a try. Pictures on the menu looked appetizing enough. I forgot that pictures can be very deceving. Had fish and chips and Salmon pasta. Bland. Made me wish I was at Caruso instead which was 2 mins away.
