We fancied eating somewhere nearby rather than walking into Reykjavik and decided to eat here. The waiters/barmen were lovely and made conversation with us regarding our stay so far. The food was really nice and good portion sizes. My partner had the enchiladas which he enjoyed but weren't very spicy as some may expect (but the salsa which came with... More

Have eaten here twice in the last 5 weeks. First time had Mexican. It was OK but I would recommend Culiacan near the Hilton Hotel for spicier Mexican food. Second time had the fish & chips. I did not enjoy it. The chips were overcooked. Both visits were midweek & the place was very quiet both times. Lacked atmosphere.

Went here as it was literally just across the road from our hotel, my husband had been ill all day do we wanted somewhere nearby. I had the ribs which were beautiful, hubby had the steak sandwich which he said was good but to be honest he just wanted to be back in bed. We didn't stay long but had... More

Had a lovely meal here, the portions are big and the food is well presented. The service is very fast and the staff are very friendly. The hotel had a 10% discount voucher which came in very handy. Would eat here again

Went for dinner here after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. I wasn't sure about going in as it was quite empty but I was pleased we did and i soon filled up anyway. The Tex Mex menu was a surprise in the middle of Iceland but food was tasty and portion size was huge on the Burrito, fajitas were a... More

Clean and quaint restaurant with a good variety of food options. Staff was friendly but not overly attentive. Good food for the price.

Due to a problem with our hotel restaurant we ended up here for our Christmas dinner. We turned up unexpectedly and they seated us despite being fully booked. the service was friendly and good and so was the food. Very reasonably priced good sized portions and very flavoursome.

We went there 2 times of our 3 nights stay, because there it was cheaper than in the centre. The prices in iceland are so high, i dont have to spend 16 Euro for one soup... there we paid for a main course around 17 euro, but the portions were really big. And it was delicious so everything was good.... More
