What a nice surprise!! Food was very good. Service was fast, efficient and friendly. Had the chicken kabob and fish and chips. Fish was awesome. The kabob was great too! Would come back here often if we lived here.

It is a diner like restaurant with "fast food" items. The burgers and sandwiches are very tasty, the fries are ok. The staff was very friendly and answered all our questions. Certainly worth a visit.

As I local I eat here often, it's got many choices of food types weather it be fish or meat or sandwiches. I recommend the lamb "hálendisspjót" or the beef peppersteak.
