Chicken wraps plus salad were excellent. You can help yourself to home made bread butter and houmus to your hearts content. Good for vegis vegan and gluten free

Staying at The Reykjavik Lights Hotel next door, so nice and convenient after a long day out. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was fresh and delicious. The humus and bread you are given whilst waiting for your food to be cooked is also very yummy. Would definitely recommend this place.

The range of salads is mind blowing. Chicken or fish cooked to order and as much home baked bread and humus as you can eat.

Frosty reception. Arriving at opening time of 11am, asking for a menu, needing change from small notes, and needing sugar all seemed all to inconvenient with not a smile in sight. Reykjavik Lights Hotel doesn't serve hot drinks until 12 so that's why we came here. On the plus side my hot chocolate was very nice. Won't be popping in... More

Felt like processed Generic pub food, full of Americans from the Hilton next door so compared to a Wendy's it's probably great but compared with the other places in Reykjavik we ate a let down and disappointed wouldn't recommend.

Ate here with our family of three for a simple meal on our first day in Iceland. Our hotel is nearby (Bolholt apartments) and it was a quick walk to the restaurant. Food was ready fast and there were both vegetarian and meat options. The free bread and hummus were great while we waited for our meals. Paid around ISK5300... More

This restaurant adjoins the Reykjavik Lights Hotel and is good for dinner on the day of arrival. The soup and humus was tasty and filling and my family all really enjoyed the Madras meals. I was disappointed with my wrap which was tasty but cold not the fault of the menu just my choice. This is a good place to... More

A nice place to grab a bite. Had lots of vegetarian options, which is always a good find. Downstairs from Reykjavik Lights Hotel, so especially convenient if you're staying there.

We were staying at the Reykjavik lights hotel next door and ate twice here. Both times we had the fish of the day, this was baked and came with potatoes and salad. Super fresh fish, couldn't ask for better and reasonably priced! To top that you get complimentary bread, houmous and flavoured water. Super friendly staff too!

We arrived to a very wet and windy Thursday totally shattered after traveling through the night so didn't want to venture far. We saw the restaurant as we arrived at the hotel and thought we would give it a try. We are so glad we did. The Spanish chicken with salad was delicious and so much of it. Very reasonably... More
