A good choice of food and plenty of it. My husband had a salad to start from the salad bar and then struggled to eat his main meal! I had spaghetti carbonara and it was delicious! One of the best that i've had anywhere. Wish we had found this restaurant earlier!

I visited last night with my mum. We hadn't booked so was a wait to be seated (approx 30 mins) but that proved to me it was worth the wait. I had deep fried Orly and my mum had BBQ chicken. They accommodated changing options to suit with our meal and food arrived quickly even though it was busy. We... More

My friend and I were staying in the nearby Reykjavik lights hotel and wondered in here on our evening of arrival. At 6.30pm we waited around 10 minutes for a table as the restaurant was busy. We were brought menus and water straight away including a set menu of the day option. We ordered and started on the salad bar... More

I thought the food here was pretty average, but very pricey. It was hard to flag the waiter down, and he wasn't super patient with us. Enjoyed our sandwich, but probably wouldn't go back.

Short walk round the corner from city park hotel. Very busy when we visited, but quick service. Burgers were good, plentiful. Salad and bread bar also available depending on your menu choice. Average priced. Would recommend.

An Icelandic friend took us here recently. Very busy! We only made one quick pass at the salad bar, but it had a nice selection. And good soup. I wanted to try something completely different, so she suggested the foal. I wasn't sure about eating horse, but I gave it a try. To my surprise it was very tasty. More... More

Was out with my friend for a quick dinner and stumbled upon this place. Looked full so we decided to give it a shot. Looked thru the menu and decided to go for a lamb faijitas. My friend ordered a burger, they screwed his order up and gave him a double burger for the price of a single one. Thumbs... More

Four of us just dandered in off the street (3.30pm) and were shown to a free table, didn't see any sign of a buffet (which everyone is talking about) just a soup and salad bar. We ordered a variety of meals from the menu and a carafe of house white wine, some of our meals came with complementary soup and... More

It was SO popular that we attempted to go here on consecutive nights only to find that a group of 54 teenagers with their chaperons had booked dinner there, so, we didn't attempt to compete! Apparently, at least on Sunday evenings, they present an all inclusive buffet.
