Found near our hotel (Grand) fantastic food, good portion size, great staff and value for money. Only in Iceland for 3 nights but visited twice! Sport on TVs and great music in background

We actually went to Red Chilli as we saw it on another review and it was near our hotel and I must say it did not disappoint. We had the beef quesadilla which was amazing and very reasonably priced too considering Iceland prices. Would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed a burger meal each in here. It was rather tasty and was served with a big portion of chips to. The service was good and we felt quite relaxed in here. The beer was nice to bus as anywhere in Iceland a bit pricey.

We ate here as a couple twice and can highly recommend it, food is great and massive portions. As in everything in Iceland its not cheap, a two course meal with two glasses of wine for two adults will set you back about £100.00 which is kind of the average, however the food here is amazing and also they do...

Ate here during February 2017. The meat comes up very pink. I had the lamb one night and was on the loo pretty much all night. We gave it another go and my wife had the Seafood Pan and then she was being sick all night. So not the best

This place was awesome! I was travelling with my partner and another couple.We were staying just outside of the city centre at Hotel Island (I have a TripAdvisor contribution for this hotel also). We arrived in the evening and headed out to find a bar. There weren't many options (that we found) but we stumbled across this place. Staff The... More

We fancied eating somewhere nearby rather than walking into Reykjavik and decided to eat here. The waiters/barmen were lovely and made conversation with us regarding our stay so far. The food was really nice and good portion sizes. My partner had the enchiladas which he enjoyed but weren't very spicy as some may expect (but the salsa which came with... More

Have eaten here twice in the last 5 weeks. First time had Mexican. It was OK but I would recommend Culiacan near the Hilton Hotel for spicier Mexican food. Second time had the fish & chips. I did not enjoy it. The chips were overcooked. Both visits were midweek & the place was very quiet both times. Lacked atmosphere.
