The staff was very kind and welcomed us warmly. The inside of the restaurant is very atypical with wooden statues. The hot chocolate was good and its price was reasonable. Highly recommended!

The cod fish was amazing and the atmosphere is great! The staff were really nice and quick. Right at the harbor so really nice views.

Delicious food, reasonable prices, great location with nice sunny terrace looking out on the harbour. Fish soup very tasty, grilled gambas nice! The main dish with cod, pesto and a special kind of risotto was absolutely delicious, one of my top favorites in Iceland in...2 weeks!! The fish burger lacked a crispy crust and the cayun spices were a bit too much, but the sweet potato fries (ask for it instead of French fries) with chilly mayo are TO DIE FOR! We spent about ISK 13K (EUR 80) for 2-course dinner for two including few drinks. Easy to park at harbour. Staff could pay a little bit more personal attention to guests, but we found this an overall "thing" in Iceland.More

The best thing is the location - directly in the harbour. The food is good (we got seafood linguine - delicious) and the price is reasonable. The service was very good. You can sit outside if the temperature allows it.

We had the most delicious fish soup in a very cosy setting! The beer selection was quite nice too, with lovely craft beers from Borg brugghus. The perfect stop on a cold day.

Love the food and the ambiance. I ordered the fish soup as main and I loved it!!!! Very recommendable. My travel mates ordered the tagliatelle with seafood and they were very good too. It’s the perfect option after a whale watching tour, looking at the...gorgeous harbour!!!More

A very decent place on the harbour to have lunch before a whale watching cruise. Portions are huge. Prices are reasonable. Waiters are efficient and friendly.

Very good pub with outstanding views to the harbour and the mountains. We sat outside and enjoyed an amazing sunset. Great atmosphere, nice food and good service.

Great location for drinks, our food (four different dishes) not of high quality. All staff very nice and polite.
