Terrible food, expensive menu (even by Icelandic standards), and extremely shabby & dated interior to top it off. My husband had a chicken burger, straight out of the freezer and I had a margarita pizza, incredibly doughy. There may not be a plethora of places...More

Essential interiors, but great, earthy food that won't disappoint you. Incredible, 5 star tiramisù that you gotta try! The owner, Martin, is the best host.

Unfortunately this restaurant proved to be the wrong choice on our way back to the capital from South Iceland. The prices are RELATIVELY low but two of the three dishes we ordered were very poor quality, and we aren't fussy eaters.

We came here twice for a quick lunch / dinner here during our stay in Hella. This is an unpretentious place, serving reasonable quality food, for reasonable prices, with decent service.

We were passing by this place and decided to stop overnight at the hotel. As the restaurant seemed busy we took it as a good sign and decided to eat here. We were not disappointed. Ordered horse meat as I never had it before. My...More

Didn't know the room was inside a diner. It would have been awkward walking into a full restaurant with our bags but the place was pretty empty when we arrived. The room was nice though and staff was very friendly . Not many places in...More
