My brother and I had the special and it was excellent.
The drinks are fantastic; the atmosphere is great; the servers are all very nice. Be prepared to pay at least $100/person

I don't even know where to begin with this place - the Food Cellar was absolutely outstanding. Each dish we had was worth every penny - large portion sizes of traditional Icelandic meals with many unique flavours. This place is expensive for sure, but the kind staff catered to our every need, the live piano music was absolutely beautiful and the meals, desserts and wine were unbelievable. If you're debating on whether to go here because of the price - do it, it's so worth it! This was a great way to spend the last night of our trip.

Lovely atmosphere in this cozy cellar restaurant with hice subdued ligting adding to the feeling. Beautiful selection of both fish and meat prepared in interestng ways. Fantastic cocktail made from Birch Schnapps and good wine list. We went for dinner and it was packed which always a good sign but notwithstanding the numbers the service was quick and efficient.
