I had a choice of vegetarian meals! That's quite nice for a change. I ordered the nut-steak and it was delicious. My wife ordered the seafood chowder. This came with a free refill! We came in at lunchtime and were the only guests. It's the season;-) Thanks for the experience and worth while visiting.

Average food, good service. Prawns were large and well cooked, but I did not like having to pull each one out of its shell. I will happily pay more to have my food ready to eat.

A small restaurant in an old romantic house in a little village at the south coast of Iceland. Good seafood and the lamb was also very nice. Chocolate cake was excellent :)

This is a very nice restaurant with high quality food. The village is charming and peaceful! It is located just a few meters away from the seaside, surrounded by the old houses and next door to the local museum. Just take some time to explore the neigbourhood as well as enjoy a good meal or coffee and cake..

Very good seafood soup for starter, that I highly recommend. Had the beef tenderloin for main course. Everything fine with it, except that the meat was highly over-cooked.

The langostines here were so delicious and made me realize that I should be devouring these as much as I can while I'm in Iceland. Super plumb, soft, and sweetly seafood flavored. Food here was nicely seasoned and not over done. The restaurant itself is very cute and decently sized. The decor is very warm/inviting and perfect for a romantic... More

Although all of our meals were wonderful on our trip, this meal did stand out as one of the best. Great attention to detail by the wait staff and very fresh seafood! It is expensive, but so is every other place in Iceland...

I was afraid when I arrived because it was empty! Unfortunately my instinct was right.. way overpriced for frozen seafood! I do not recommend it to anyone! Oh and the portions are very, very small! Do not go to this place! It's awful!

Hi Diogo! Welcome to Iceland in winter. It’s not for the faint of heart! If you travel a bit off the beaten path, you just may find yourself alone. Of all the people visiting Iceland in winter, not so many choose to rent cars and venture out on their own, and of these not so many venture off of the... More

We stopped by for lunch and had great salads and seafood soup--it's full of giant chunks of langostine, scallops and fish. Really tasty bread.
