“Excellent place”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Brilliant buffet for only €10, by far the best lunch I had in the whole of Iceland. Includes home-made soup, fresh bread, cous cous and pasta. Great museum as well.

“Great food, good service”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

I didn't know what to expect when we arrived, having gotten the suggestion of where to go from my sister in law. We were warmly greeted and seated and got a wonderful server. He switched fluently between Icelandic and English as we were two couples dining, one Icelandic and one from Slovakia.
The menu lists the origin of their food wherever possible - meat from X farm, bread from Y bakery, skyr from Z place and so on. There's a good selection of vegetarian food, fish and meat on the menu, and the range of price is good, offering something for everyone.
Where we were seated we had the rock-face as one of the 'walls' as they have managed to bring the outside in in a very clever way. The building has a nice feel to it and it was very tempting to stay for a long while after the meal was over, but we had to go on.

“Tasted good”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I liked the food that we ate, especially the squash soup. the service was really nice; there was an older Danish couple in the restaurant and the waitress who was attending to them did not speak Danish; another waitress went over and talked with them for about 20 minutes. Very warm and welcoming.
