We loved this place! From the outside, we weren't sure what we would find, but I am so glad we took the chance to go in. Lovely, friendly proprietor and delicious food. Very comfortable and had great, personal service.

We found this bar just around the corner from our hotel. It had a very warm and welcoming atmosphere and the staff were lovely. My and my partner both had a burger, the portions were big and the burgers were delicious! We will definitely visit again.

Even though Id think this is more of a sportsbar at evenings. We came here a Mollmonday afternoon roughly around 16:00 we were the only people eating here, and was not disappointed. We both had the bearnaiseburger with fries and a little mixed sallad on the side. (included) with a cap bottle drink and the Icelandic 'cocktail-dip' The environment is... More

We enjoyed our food very, very much. I tried the minke whale. Everything we had was perfect and recommended by the waitress. Service was good and fast. Fish is amazing in any quality restaurant in Iceland and this did not disappoint at all.

We came across this little place while exploring around our hotel, from the outside it looks really small, but the bar is all light up, and a few booths around we thought we'd check it out. Once instead we were greeted by a lovely woman and told us around the large room around the corner which was beautifully done out... More

The place is off the beaten path. It is a nice burger joint and the burger was good but the bread was a little stale. Service was fine and friendly.

I stumbled in one day with my friends, back in their original location in a pretty industrial district, when they had just opened. We really didn't expect much from the location but then we all had some of our all time best burgers that day. The place has a very nice atmosphere and its always manned at the grill by... More

I stopped in as I was staying nearby and I wanted to catch the United, Liverpool match. The place was hopping, great atmosphere. I got the Presley burger, there's several more on the menu I would like to have tried had I stayed longer in Reykjavik. The service was also brilliant, the lady behind the bar was very accommodating. And... More

As we were staying at the Comfort Inn just around the corner and after the reviews we just had to try this place, it lived up to its reviews and more one of the best burgers I've eaten and the chips were good as well if your staying at the Comfort then this has to be on the bucket list.

We were starving and saw this place across the street. I ordered the one with BBQ sauce. I loved the fact that it was messy, just how burgers should be!
