....and it did not disappoint. We had the gastronomique menu. Every course was different and imaginative, using some unusual and eclectic combinations. However, they all worked. Can't complain about that! The service was attentive and enthusiastic. What a great credit to Iceland these young people are. Absolutely delightful, confident and knowledgeable. As with all things in Reykyavik, it comes at... More

Fish of the day was Pollack. So my partner ordered that. I love lamb, so I had the Lamb Shank with Fillet.... More

We had about 90 minutes between tours to get dinner. Although they were totally booked for later, they gave us a table and served us an excellent dinner really quickly. The food was tasty and attractively presented. Prices were reasonable for the quality of both food and service. Wish we'd had more time to try more things on the menu.... More

We were lucky enough to get a last minute cancellation here, and what a place to start our time in Reykjavik! Staff were friendly, laid back (despite having a large table of famous people arrive during our starter!), and knowledgeable about the food and local area. Decor and ambience were spot on, we were surrounded by drift wood and chunky... More

In 2010 a young chef from Húsavík, was awarded Chef of the year 2010 in Iceland.The young chef, Gústav spent months traveling around Iceland looking for the real taste of Iceland, along the way he found a few things that are key items of the interior of the restaurant.Take a look at our menu, it will be our pleasure to fire up the old grill when you honor us with a visit.
