Ok, it's a typical American restaurant in Iceland. Not unique to the area, but with pre-teen kids it worked out well, especially since it was after 8 and we were returning from a long day touring. The service was very good. We ordered within minutes of arriving and the food was delivered within 15 minutes after we ordered. From there,... More

Because I was not inclined to try traditional Icelandic food during my visit, I was pleased when I found this Ruby Tuesday right up the hill from my hotel. Sometimes, especially when visiting a place much different from home, it is nice to have a familiar place to go. This restaurant did the trick. The food was served quickly, and... More

Food is not fresh, resturant is not very clean and it's like you are bothering the staff by eating there.

Oh lord! I was looking for the hidden camera, because the service was so bad I thought this must be a joke. Had to ask for ketchup 4 times, it took 15 minutes. The girl serving us looked like her dog just died or something she was just so unhappy and unhelpful. When one of us had not got their... More

This review is for the Ruby Tuesday on Skipholt as there are two in Reykjavik. Good food, similar to TGI. Very friendly staff and our food came fast. Prices are like most restaurants but certainly more value in this case. The furniture could do with a makeover though...

Everything in Iceland is about twice the price that it would be in the US and this was no exception. We had a nice meal, the portions were generous but you're getting more of an American dining experience here than an Icelandic one. We did love the shoestring onions though! The ribs were good too.

We ate here on 2 evenings of our stay in Reykjavik as it was close to our hotel. There was plenty on the menu to suit us both. Typical American style menu. Big portions and not overly priced for Reykjavik.

Thank Elaine D
