We visited this atmospheric cafe/bar during our recent visit to Iceland and thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the music. The food was the best we experienced during our stay, simply cooked and beautifully fresh Atlantic Char with lobster tails and jacket potato, highly recommended!...More

We accidentally stumbled upon a live act on a Saturday night (Stebbi Jak og Andri Ívars) who played a wide range of music with good humour. After paying an entrance fee, the drinks were reasonably priced, with a great atmosphere.
