Lovely location by the old harbour. delicious langoustine and amazingly tender lamb. Not cheap but worth it.

“Anniversary Treat”

5 of 5 starsReviewed March 28, 2013

Because we were celebrating our First Wedding Anniversary during our trip we decided to treat ourselves to an authentic Icelandic meal. We booked online prior to travelling after reading tripadvisor reviews.
The meal and restaurant did not disappoint, frequented by locals and tourists alike the restaurant is situated at the harbour with two large windows playing out all the activities taking place.
The menu is interesting and varied. We both had the soup of the day which was broccoli. This was very delicate in flavour and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband had the reindeer meatballs which he thought were fantastic and I had the Lamb which was superb.
The service was attentive but none intrusive, just how we liked it.
As with all of Iceland it is on the expensive side, but everywhere is and we were treating ourselves.

“Excellent food, excellent service, acceptable price”

On the harbour in Reykjavik, pretty empty when we were there. Old style decor, recommendation of the day, fish soup and breaded lamb exceeded expectations, and cheap (compared to Norway!). Chatty waiters (in English and Norwegian) good humour, typical of a people fighting their way out of economic difficulties. Take note you Greeks! Highly recommended if you want more than fast food.
