    Great service and the food was pretty good, but could have kicked it uo a notch in terms of flavor. Great for a hungry family though.

    Great freshly caught fish, delicious potatoes and skyr dipping sauces (my favourite was truffle and tarragon).
  • Patricia H.
    It's a tourist trap. Fish was heavily battered and dripping with oil. Tasteless. Salad was so unappetizing and the dips was mayonnaise with flavors. Will never recommend.
  • Can K.
    Refreshing taste, crusty yet so light and fresh.

    Went with one of the recommendations on the board - probably the healthiest fried fish I've had, love the spelt batter! Tldr; get a recommendation if you're indecisive

    Just look at that batter. Yes, please! Wonderful flavours, suggest you go with one of their daily recommendations.

    Batter is light and crispy yet not oily. Portion is generous and the oven baked potatoes are really good. If you have trouble deciding, go for their fish of the day and recommended sides.

    A bit noisier but slightly cheaper than other restaurant nearby. Check out the volcano shop.

    Must have the langoustines! The bread that comes with it is just to die for! Crispy potatoes aren't very crispy though...

    The fish batter was really light and crispy. Not greasy at all, I recommend the truffle and tarragon dip for the chips. :)

    Fish is good but they were low on beer. As a tourist place they should have lots of beer available.

    Less charming than Reykjavik Fish across the street, but with way more delicious and distinctive fried fish - spelt battered catch of the day! DO get the happy hour special.

    We were told this was some of the best fish and chips in Reykjavik. Although the sauce selection is nice, the fish was sort of bland

    Tasty no frills meal with fresh fish that doesn't break the bank. Recommend especially for families and casual dinner.

    Informal restaurant in front of the harbor when you can try fish and chips with the catch of the day. Iceland beer is a must.

    Tip: for budget travelers you might wanna consider their set dinner with around 700IKR cheaper tho you cannot choose your salad and Skyrr dipping.
  • Lau
    LauFebruary 4, 2015
    Fresh and perfectly cooked cod and red fish, taste absolutely stunning tho you might wanna add a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor(Better than Skyrr dipping). Delicious salad(Orange salad was nice)

    Try the Steinbit fish instead of cod if they have it at the moment. Sauce is served on the side. Don't miss the mango salad! Try the Chilean wine to go with, it's mazing! Free wifi for 2 hrs

    Cod with any side is fantastic and fresh, but make sure you get a large Gull Beer to top it all all off! Also, AWESOME FRIENDLY ICELANDINC SERVERS IS A PLUS!

    Fish & chips were good, thought the dips were a bit over-rated as is charging for vinegar!

    If you're looking for traditional fish and chips, this is not the place. I didn't care for their method. The people, however, were lovely.

    IMO a little overrated. Fish tasted bland but maybe due to the nature of the bistro (organic)
  • Thorlaug A.

    My absolute favorite place in Reykjavik. Great for eat-in or take-out ('THE' fish takeout in town), reasonably priced and great atmosphere. Try their salad, gingerale and of course skyronaise sauces.

    After the usual fried ling + oven-roasted potatoes + tartar skyronnes dip try the Traditional skyr with berrycoulis and cinnamon-roasted walnuts. And then you'll tell me "Takk"

    You get several pieces of fish, so unless you're starving, consider sharing. We think it's definitely enough for two, especially with the potatoes.

    Coco latte is delicious. Chili spiced, little chocolate. Also get the biscotti. Tastes like a shortbread & has Angelica (Icelandic lava moss) in it.
