Having earlier experienced the ultimate in Icelandic meat soup (Perlan - try it!), I was after an outstanding fish soup and, after a brief search in the central area, we spotted the menu at this place. "Fish soup made with white chocolate" it said. "I have just GOT to try this" I said.
A smart looking restaurant. We enquired "A drink and some soup, OK". No problem.
The soup was SENSATIONAL. Knowing that white chocolate was an ingredient explained why the texture was so silky smooth. Plus, there were scallops, mussels, salmon and shrimps. Also, there is just no doubt that this soup was freshly made. No chill, no microwave. Top marks to this restaurant. Not cheap, but good.

We had just arrived in Iceland and wanted a reasonably priced meal without hawking around the city. Pasta and a burger later we were well satisfied .

I would recommend stopping here for lunch. The food was good and service was friendly. Great location. When considering all the meals we had on our visit to Iceland this was one of the best values. Burger was very good.

Nice place. Good food, nice atmosphere. Seems more of a family restaurant. Brightly lit, not much late night atmosphere but, all in all, a very good restaurant for seafood, beef and lamb. My friend had a mink whale burger. He loved it. I tasted it - texture of steak with a more salty tang. But very good. Food was right priced, service was very good and the food was very good.

You can get some excellent photos there. You can go shopping next door and have a few choices of food to eat. Soup, a smaller restaurant with many choices of food and drinks, and there is a really big shopping area to get Christmas and souvenirs and decorations.
