I had lobster soup, lamb, and french chocolate cake with ice-cream. The lamb was not as great as I expected. It was a cooked to little and was to fat and with tendons. Maybe we was just unlucky. The starter and the cake was just great.

We went there with our travel group on the last evening and it was pretty nice. We went upstairs at a cool dining area for larger groups. The food was really good, big portions, great service. Very nice venue for a special night out!

This restaurant is just around the corner from the Hotel Borg. We walked in without a reservation. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and the staff were friendly and informative. We chose the Salt Cod Adventure and the Seawolf Adventure - both 3 course fixed price. Food was tasty and beautifully presented. A thoroughly enjoyable meal to round off our... More

We visited this restaurant in November 2016 for a wedding meal. The restaurant itself is beautiful with the wedding party being upstairs so it was private. The building was decorated beautifully with lights on the trees outside. Inside it is lovely too & the room was decorated to perfection for the wedding meal. The food was outstanding, everyone said how... More

Thankfully we made reservations for Christmas Eve dinner ahead of our trip to Iceland as it difficult to find places that are open. They had a special Christmas Eve mean with a selection of 4 appetizers and 3 main dishes along with one dessert. We were traveling with our 11 year old son who is know to be a picky... More

We booked for Christmas Day and had the fixed dinner menu. The Cream of Lobster soup was very tasty but only had two tiny pieces of lobster (apparently in Iceland it is crayfish) with a dollop of cream which was unnecessary. The main course arrived immediately after our dishes were taken. My wolf fish was a well cooked, white flakey... More

The food was pretty bland and ordinary. The fish and meat were cooked well but the accompaniments were overcooked. Not worth the price we paid.
