Having seen the menu online, we were keen to sample some of the unique Icelandic offerings, despite the rather high prices being charged, probably for the tourist market. My husband chose the whale and I had the char both $50 + which did include soup,...More

Pros: Friendly staff. Cons: Food mediocre Way too pricy. 5.300kr for a salmom steak f.i. Been going to this place on and off for over 20 years, few years since last time. Was a bit shocked about the prices and the food was not worth...More

This restaurant was recommended by a person at the tourist information. It was a lousy recommendation. They said it had been in business for many years. The board outside the restaurant touted Icelandic food, and it should have been enough to warn us about the...More

This restaraunt has good service and fish, but we also got to enjoy some very nice rotten greens in the salad, canned pineapples, and powdery mashed potatoes! Save yourself some bucks and... do not come here until their quality improves. Or if any of you...More

Not a good place. Very busy due to one-time-only tourists. Salat bar is poor and menu is huge - resulting in low quality dishes. Never had a good dinner and have tried many times thinking I was just unlucky in the past. Always consider other...More

Decent local eatery with a surprisingly eclectic menu...whale, horse, hamburgers, fish... I tried the guillemot, which wasn’t bad. Though, spices were lacking on that and the “safe” hamburger my wife ordered. The lobster soup was mostly a seafood mix, but was very tasty.

We had the house red wine and for our entrees had the Vesuvius pizza (which has pepperoni and chillies) and the lamb filet. Everything was excellent and the value was good. The apple pie dessert is also really good. They also have whale and horse...More

Have eaten here many times over the years visiting Iceland, and always had good quality, but basic burgers. Two of our burgers were fairly tasteless and undercooked. A cheese sandwich with salad and chips had a mere garnish, a lot of money for sandwich &...More

Salad bar was great and it was unlimited! When you have a group of physically active people an unlimited salad and soup bar comes in handy. We also had the fish soup and it was delightful.
