    Make a reservation and do not think twice: this is definitely one of the best restaurants in town. Langoustine for the starter. The other courses you can choose anything: it is going to be good!

    Very satisfying meal, a bit rich with quite a few ingredients, all fresh and well assembled. The Icelandic specialty of minke whale, shark and puffin appetizer is not to be missed.

    My favorite starter was the cured goose&smoked beef tongue. During the winter starters range from ISK 2.400-3.390 and main courses ISK 4.280-6.970. Puffin and whale are not always available(seasonal).

    favorite restaurant in Reykjavik. Taste, ambience, service is top notch. I had the lamb and pork belly and it blew me away, and I have had many lamb and pork bellies in my life

    Excellent Nordic food, made from fresh ingredients, beautifully presented. Swift, friendly and efficient service. Not cheap, but excellent value for every Krona spent there!

    This restaurant might be the best one of Reykjavik. Order their Eskimojito if you're thirsty: a delicious mojito made with Brennivin (local schnapps) instead of rum.

    If you have adventurous taste buds you can try puffin or mink whale. I tried the smoke puffin and goose appetizer and it was a real treat. I followed that with the smoke plaice and was very impressed.

    Fantastic seafood! I had the starter soup. Perhaps the best seafood soup Inhave ever eaten. Just perfect! As the main course I had the catch of the day which was catfish. Excellent and innovative!

    This is simply amazing. We choose that restaurant for our 2 years anniversary and everything was perfect. From atmosphere to service to dishes. Incredible flavours. Try the slow cooked salmon.

    I got the catch of the day, this was one of the best dishes that I had this year. Flavor was on the spot, fish was tender. And the combination with the veggies was just amazing. Must go place

    Gourmet restaurant. Delicious food and kind staff. Go for lunch since it's much cheaper than having dinner. Almost half price between 11 and 15.

    We had the Lobster menu. Ingredients were fresh and well presented. Service was great! Overall, I thought the food was too creamy for me and too many things thrown in together.

    It costs an Icelandic fortune to eat here, but the food is phenomenal. Everything from interior to lights and service to dishes and lamb to salmon - it is all perfect.

    The catch of the day was really good! Actually everything on the menu looks very tasty, but a little pricy. Very cosy atmosphere and large wine selection.
  • Adam M.
    Great food, great service, relaxed but smart restaurant with Icelandic fish (and meats). Pricey, but worth it for a date or just a good meal.

    The butter was dreamy. I ate the carpaccio and red wine. It's a few doors from Mengi, so perfect for pre-event dining. Very romantic.

    The food wasn't bad, per se, but for the price I expected much more. I had the beef chuck roast and duck leg. Seemed like something I could make myself at home. Very salty. Would not come back.
