“Just Great”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Having spent 20 days in Iceland, this was the best restaurant we ate during our journey. We took a starter, a main course and a dessert, thus we ate more than enough and the dessert was taken only by pleasure. The fishes were really fantastic (catch of the day) and the salmon was amazing especially as starter.
The price was more than reasonnable for the Icelandic prices. And the service was as you would await it from a gastronomic restaurant.
Can only highly recommand this excellent place.

“Lovely Evening”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We came upon this restaurant recently and it was fabulous. Although we had not booked the reception was good and the staff were lovely and very accommodating. The food was of really good quality, and the prices were not silly. We enjoyed a lovely evening here, good food, wine and service all the more worthy of note as they were really busy. Thanks to all staff for making our last night in Reykjavik. Fabulous

“Go with cash!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Had a great five star dinner here - started with the wild goose carpaccio (incredible), I had the catch of the day (salmon in a blueberry sauce) and my husband had the lamb (done to perfection) - both main dishes were large and really wonderful. For dessert we split a berry/skyr dish that was amazing, best dessert we had. Great wine, lovely service, perfect interior - probably the nicest dinner we had in Reykjavik- but (and this is the only reason I didn't give it a 5 rating) go with cash (this was also one of the least expensive meals we had in the city). They were having problems with their credit card system the night we went and my husband had to run to an ATM.

“great evening and dinner”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

This is local restaurant a little bit (10 minutes walk) outside the city center. They serve a combination of meat and fish. Also they have 3-course adventure menu's. If your looking for a nice restaurant, this one should be on your list.
