Had a really good meal here on the last night of our stay in Reykjavik. Burgers and fish and chips were very good but the salted cod with mushroom risotto was simply divine. Highly recommend a visit. Staff very attentive and a lovely atmosphere.

We stopped here for a couple of beers and were not disappointed. All had a unique flavor and the cider was delicious as well. Must visit if you're a craft beer fan.
