all restaurants are expensive in Reykjavik, so ignoring the price, the food was delicious. Nice Spelt batter on fish. Kids loved trying new fish.

The fish was excellent. They have fresh catches every day and the menu changes. Overall I found the meal great. Just be aware that there aren't actually any chips (or fries), it's roasted potatoes. They're still good, but from the name of the restaurant I...More

Excellent fresh fried fish (I got the cod- you could choose between 3 races) and very tasty oven baked potatoes. 4* rather than 5* because I would have appreciated some more potatoes.

This was not as good as the other restaurants we tried in Reykjavik in that it was nothing special but tasty enough. Value wise it was the cheapest place we had eaten at. Service was decent enough and we did not have to wait too...More

Very fresh cod, piping hot, Light batter... but drained into the chips, which were greasy and not crispy. Perfect stop before going on a whale watching trip. K

Fast food type place where you just walk up to the counter. Adequate seating inside.

Hi My wife doesn't eat fish of any kind (including shellfish). Might you have a steak, lamb, or chicken dish available instead ? If not what about a salad ? Many thanks / best wishes Jim

Ummm - you do know it's a SEAFOOD restaurant, yes? I bit like saying: "I know that you're a Mountaineering Centre, but my wife doesn't like heights..." ;-)

We opened in December 2006. Our goal was to provide fresh and healthy food made with the best available Icelandic ingredients. There was never a question it would be all about fish, fish clearly being our best stuff in Iceland. Borrowing a bit from our neighbours the Brits to make it possible for us to serve a quick meal in bistro style, we went for the simplest of available delights: fish'n chips. But we have changed it a bit. The batter is not the regular one, but our own simplified version without eggs but lots of spelt-spelt being a more complicated carb than regular wheat and therefore crisping up better in the frying oil. Oil-wise, we stay away from Omega 6-laden vegetable oils...Because in the western diet we consume way too much Omega 6. We use rapeseed oil for its tolerance to heat and its Omega 3. And then there's the potatoes: oven-roasted in wedges, and tossed in freshly cut parsley and the locally made salt from Saltverk. We don't wanna fry them because they are high in carbs. Unlike protein-based fish, carbs soak up oil like sponges; we know that oil is essential to our diets, but we really don't wanna overdo it. Anyways, oven-roasted potatoes keep better the potato flavor and we love potato flavor. To us salads are essential to any meal heavily laden with Omega 3. Therefore we offer a selection of salads to everyone's taste. Last but not least our dips are made from skyr, technically fresh cheese, but a uniquely Icelandic milk product that for ages we have treated a bit like yogurt. It is a virtually fat-free protein base that we generously mix with good oils such as extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and sesame oil, according to what flavor we are mixing in. Everything on the menu is made in our kitchen with the best possible ingredients we can find.
