We were looking for a decent meal - not a dining experience, just a decent bite to eat and were disappointed. It's a little confusing when you walk in and the woman at the counter was not helpful. It seemed like my questions were annoying her. You order and pay at counter and then they bring you the food to... More

Returned from Iceland last night. We were desperate to try Icelandic fish and chips! Great restaurant was packed when we spotted it the first night and couldn't get in- it was so busy !!! We came back the following evening and sat for dinner A good amount served, not too greasy, Great tartar sauce. 10/10

We visited this place for fish and chips after our boat tour as it was freeezing! Wanted some good food to warm us up. When we came in the restaurant the woman serving at the front desk was very rude and abrupt towards us. My friend was spoken to in a very demeaning manner as we weren't sure which sauce... More

We loved the fish and chips here, light, tasty batter, not greasy at all, casual seafood restaurant, located on the Old Harbor. Place order at the counter from menu written on a blackboard. I liked the decor, Icelandic folk art and paintings, I found it quaint and cozy. Good value.

Good fish and chips place, we had a fish soup to share as a starter and two portions of fish and chips, 2 beers. 75 euros the bill. The food quality is good and the fried fish is great. It is quite expensive but this is pretty common in the city unfortunately.

Thank Marco N
