We visited this on our last night after a long day in the glacier. It looked like American chain when first entered but we're surprised with quality of food. We ordered chicken fajitas, beef qusadillas and plain burger. Good portion size, nice presentation and very tasty food

We had a small meal here - burger and nacchos. Food and service was good - we would go again.Keep in mind that food in Iceland is expensive. At most places expect to pay 2 to 3 times what you'd pay for a meal in the US

Eating out is expensive in Iceland, especially with a poor exchange rate for Sterling. This is not exactly authentic Icelandic food, but it provides generous, tasty food without the need for a second mortgage. Comfortable surroundings. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The menu looked like it had a great variety and would be good option for a group with different tastes. But the quality ended up being average to below average.

Short on time so popped in here for a quick dinner. We both had burgers, they were fairly standard no hand made patties. The béarnaise sauce was really good! Quick friendly service.

We had a great meal here. The combo Fajitas for 2. Was some of the best cooked meat I'd had. The wraps need to be bigger though. Can only get one slice of meat in each one. £45 for Fajitas for 2. Three times the average price in England) that's the exchange rate). £7 for a medium glass of wine... More
