Visited as part of my daughters 21st birthday celebration. Ordered the 7 course tasting menu (which became 8!). Best food I have ever had (including some Michelin star establishments) the head chef personally presented several courses, knowledgeable and attentive serving staff, a wonderful evening!

We had an incredible gourmet, Icelandic festive meal here for New Year's Eve. Everything was delicious and presented as art. Very crowded - you need to make a booking.

We are from NY and we are used to prices here - so to me it was average priced. We had drinks and food and it was about $140/couple. So $70 each. We shared 3 of the small plates.and we got dessert.
