Inspiring traditional Icelandic cuisine. We take the good old traditional recipes and the best Icelandic ingredients to create fun and tasty food. Let tradition surprise you! We go to great lengths to find Icelandic cookbooks and other written material that may contain recipes we can use in new and inventive ways. Everything on our menu is homemade with first class produce.

We really had a great time and the food was fantastic. The staff was extremely friendly and we allowed them to guide our culinary selections- which was clearly the right choice because everything was delicious. The cocktails were also quite tasty and we had several!
