“Good food at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

If you want gourmet then La Ranga is the place for you but if you want yummy food - their speciality burger is to die for - then Helluvio it is. Their homemade chocolate cake would not look out of place in a Vienese cafe. Excellent value for money in a country where everything is expensive.

“Good hearty food in basic ambiance”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Food was excellent and lots of it. Lobster soup had half a lobster in it, and main course was delicious. Draft beer on tap. Hosts very pleasant. Decor is only just above Icelandic basic - looks like a pub dining room.with plastic tables etc and prices higher than Reykjavik but that seemed to be pretty much the standard on Iceland S Coast

“Where is the meat from local butcher, as promised in the menu ?”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Following the advice of tripadvisor, we have tested this restaurant. A big sign outside the restaurant selling its "local food", it's therefore expected to find original dishes! In fact, the menu offers burgers, pizzas and meat (horses...). The menu inform that the meat of beef burgers comes from local butcher, so we choose to try it. We are here for local food !!
The burgers arrived quickly (5 min) accompanied by probably homemade fries and a small sauce. But the meat of the burger didn't look like a butcher's steak! Don't talk about taste... nothing to do with the fresh meat of a butcher. A steak which was chopped by a butcher has a characteristic structure, meat forms tiny tubes. Here the hamburger meat was clearly an industrial chopped steak.
One of the things that we enjoy in Iceland is the quality of the products offered in restaurants. We have clearly been deceived here.
The welcome was relatively cold, no smile. Fortunately the music was well chosen (no kitsch) and liven up the atmosphere.
The only positive point was decoration. It is rather nice and clean.

“A chance to enjoy local cuisine.”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Our first night in Iceland and we were lucky to be referred here for a meal of horse fillets -- very yummy. Also lucky that the place was not busy so the owner took the time to welcome us to Iceland with friendly chit-chat and helpful hints. Food was so good we made a point of returning for great fish dinner another night. Don't judge by the plain exterior, it's the food that matters, and the staff are all charming also.

“Ok restaurant”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

I think because there is not much else on offer in Hella that this has such great reviews. It was clean and the food was fine, the service was excellent. However it is nothing to write home about, just a nice little locals restaurant that serves the usual fare.
