They could have had a better review if they bothered with service . Not sure if it's because this is more of a pub /bar. But seriously need to learn how to take orders , clear tables etc . We left before ordering dessert as we couldn't be bothered waiting for them to come back . Food is ok though

Stumbled upon this place when we arrived as were looking for somewhere close by to eat. Should have known by the look of the interior that it wouldn't be great, but we went ahead. Food was really bad. Pizzas did not resemble pizza, looked like they'd been microwaved and tasted plastic. Fish was tasteless. And it was not cheap. Our... More

Service very friendly and accomodating but inside dark and gloomy, has got a sticky feel to it, looks more like a grabby pub. food was OKish, we orderred a fish stew which wasnt a stew ( i think transaltion should be different), it was more of a fish pie on a plate, mainly mashed potates with small pieces of fish,...

We should have sensed the vibes when we first went in. Dark, not too appealing atmosphere, table not clean, food on floor. However, waitress was pleasant and attentive. Ordered pulled pork sandwich and steak sandwich, both came with french fries. Fries were old and cold. Pork was okay but smothered in a smoky sauce which dominated the taste of the... More

This was our first stop after settling into our hotel. My 11 year old son and I were staving and the menu looked to contain some Icelandic dishes which is what we were looking for. The place has a pub feel to it and is quite dark but reasonably sized. We were shown to a table straight away and our... More

This place had a comfortable pub atmosphere. Mostly burgers and sandwiches and sweet potato fries (which were very good by the way). Recommend the Reindeer Burger and the Hot Chocolate. Perfect for after walking around the cold city to warm up.

Unpretentious exterior conceals a fairly basic large, pub/restaurant but with excellent food and great, friendlyservice. The langoustines were as good as any I've had.

So, me and my boyfriend, Henry, were taking a walk by the lake. On our way back to our apartment we crossed our eyes onto this place and had an amazing pasta dish with a side lettuce. The service was way above average, we will be celebrating our two months anniversary there. xoxoxoxo

Popped in for a drink during happy hour. Reminded us of a Weatherspoon's, no frills type of pub. Staff were extremely friendly & welcoming. The only 1 toilet available was grim at best and after seeing this doubt we would have stayed for food. Good for a very quick drink. Wouldn't have a problem going there again but definitely wouldn't... More
