Had a great meal here. We walked in without a reservation. I had the Arctic Char which was excellent. Atmosphere was nice. Would go back.

Arrived late afternoon and went out for an early dinner. Liked the menu so went in with no reservation. Friendly welcome, seated immediately with no problem. We ordered the Lobster salad and a pasta dish with ham & mushrooms. Food was lovely and service efficient.

We enjoyed our meal here, we were seated quickly without a reservation and all ordered pizza which was nice but not exceptional. Service was good but once again not amazing, average prices for Iceland.

Lovely building in a convenient city setting - very quaint, especially upstairs, with a cosy and friendly atmosphere. The service was attentive and friendly - lovely live classical guitar playing as we ate! We were very much looking forward to some quality Italian food and we were not disappointed. My spaghetti with langoustines was full of flavour and had an... More

A group of 10 of us came here to celebrate a birthday and the restaurant was very accommodating! The food was wonderful and the server was prompt and helpful! We had a wonderful Italian meal here! The garlic pizza appetizer is phenomenal!
