Had dinner here this evening. Absolutely brilliant food, lovely atmosphere and great service. Book as we had to go away then come back later for dinner as so busy!

We ate here on our first evening. We hadn't booked but were early diners so we were lucky and got a table straightaway, we spent much of the rest of our dinner watching people being turned away or put on a waiting list. It is a small room and the tables are close together so with our winter coats draped over the back of the chairs there was no room for anyone in our group of tables to move. The cuisine is more fine dining than street food, my fish of the day was Golden Red Fish served on a sweet potato puree with accompaniments. I am assuming that it was cooked to order as it didn't arrive quickly but was delicious and perfectly cooked when it came. We decided to give dessert a miss and faced our first Icelandic restaurant bill - 98,000 for two mains, a mid beer and an apple juice. Get used to it, and book ahead.

We had dinner at this restaurant.
It was our last evening in Reykjavik.
It was an amazing experience.
The restaurant has a very cozy atmosphere,the service is great and the food was excellent.
The lamb,ling and cod were excellent as was the rhubarb cake.
I am so glad we ended our visit to Iceland on this high note.
This was one of the best meals we had in Iceland.

This is an excellent small restaurant with great food and service. Highly recommend it. We were only in Reykjavik for three nights and ate there twice. Small menu, about 5 starters and seven main courses but every dish we had was excellent and reasonably priced (for Reykjavik!). Because it has limited seats you can only book up to 6p.m.
