We went for dinner as a family in June 2018. We had a bit of everything.

Mink whale is absolutely DELICIOUS. My son said the octopus is one of the best he's ever had. As usual in Iceland lamb was great.

Word of advice, unless you are an ogre you do not need sides (we had to take them home)

Portions are perfect.

Service was perfect too!

We'll be back.

We were attracted by the lunch offer (see pic) and were not disappointed. We got seated immediately. I don’t think a reservation is needed for lunch.
The trout was served on a real block Himalayan salt was delicious(2nd pic) as well as the lamb and the desert (3rd pic).
The ambience is different from what you usually find in Iceland and after 10 days in Iceland very much appreciated.
Enjoy your lunch :-)

Last nights meal could have been terrible and if a kind and attentive manager wasn’t on hand to save us from it, we’d have left very unpleased. We are careful when away from home to specify the temperature of our meats by colour rather than name, and even add a description. ‘I’d like my beef pink and with no blood’ is my usual line. Our waitress was absent until we had to complain that our side order had not arrived and try as we might to eat our rare and bloody meats- we just couldn’t. This when when the manager noticed us struggling and asked us the magic question ‘are you enjoying your food?’. It was when I told him that it was so far a disaster, that he took the matter into his hands and tasked the kitchen to replace our meats with ones cooked as we’d like, and then rushed over our side dish too, that the meal took off. As it happens the beef and lamb came back as we would have liked in the first instance and so we were very pleased indeed. Like the title said, the meal was totally salvaged and we left both full and happy. Thank you Mr. Manager, we had a lovely evening.

This restaurant is very well known as a great restaurant, but our group thought that it was good, but not terrific.

We stopped in this former pharmacy as the last destination in a city food tour. The decor is nice. What to have? A nice individual dessert tray with a nice sorbet and two other delicious, sweet treats. I'd go back to try some drinks and a meal.
