Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Walking distance from any hotel in the city core. We went back to revisit on our last night of 12 day vacation.

Visited from the US. We went for late lunch and had the lamb burger, lamb pie and soup. Also two locally brewed beers suggested by our waiter. The service was excellent without been overwhelming. Sometimes at home they ask if everything is ok so many times you feel like asking just to let you eat. We loved the ambience in this place, specially the cup warmer for our soup. It was adorable.

Great atmosphere. Requested a cocktail that wasn't on the menu and they made it perfectly. Beer on tap was delicious. Ordered the lobster hot dog which was so delicious it was eaten prior to snapping a photo. The reindeer burger and onion rings were delicious as well.

This was our first place to eat in Iceland. I got the sampler platter, I have provided a picture. Lamp bacon, rain deer meatballs, whale fin, and some other stuff. The portion was that of poor people rations with aristocratic prices. It was good and the atmosphere and service were good but I felt taken advantage of.
