We enjoyed an early dinner here during our one night passing through the area. My husband and I both ordered the langoustine and duck confit dishes and we both were immensely happy. The service is super friendly which put our dinner experience over the top!

We shared the feta cheese appetizer and it was quite tasty. For our meals we ordered the langoustine baguette and the Grand Mix plate and shared - very very good langoustine, wonderfully cooked. Served with salad. Crazy expensive even for Iceland.

We sampled almost everything on the menu and one thing was better than the next… A great meal! Lobster pizza and attic char at the top of our list, besides the lobster itself of course!

We two arrived there during the high season (July) without reservations and were immediately seated. We saw that larger groups were turned away. I think that it should be much easier in September.
Can you pl. give us an idea of the cost of dinner? For example how much is the arctic char? How much is the langoustine dinner?
