The staff were friendly and there was a wide choice of food . Like a lot of Iceland it was expensive but the Lamb is the best I have ever eaten. I also tried whale meat which was like eating steak.

You can get burgers, salads, sandwiches, fish and meat dishes and pasta dishes. We ordered pasta dishes; my chicken pasta was nice but my husband said the spaghetti bolognaise was very watery at the bottom with not much meat. Not that cheap but ok.

Decided to treat ourselves. So happy we chose this place! Gorgeous food! Prices were ok considering. Pizza was incredible and my friend got the steak sandwich which looked gorgeous.

I had a traditional Icelandic meal, delicious. Free soup and salad with fish and meat dishes. The staff were great and you can sit and watch the world go by out of the massive windows.
