We really enjoyed our meal here. The place is in a great location and it has plenty of seating and a good layout. The staff were really great - friendly and efficient which is a real bonus. Downstairs they have an area where children can...More

Went for dinner on Feb 15 and windows were covered up with construction crew inside. No name or opening time posted. Went to two other restaurants in the area that were out of what we wanted to order. Mega Bummer

As expected with a lot of places in Reykjavik, the food was way more expensive than it should be. The food is okay but it isn’t something special. BUT, the look of the place is pretty unique and interesting. The service was okay too.

It was a neat place to visit, very hip vibe. I felt that I wasn’t cool enough to hang out there. The food is was just ok. Nachos were subpar and expensive. Would probably be better for drinks or appetizers instead of meals.

Visited for lunch and disappointed to see they don't do happy hour offers, but plenty of good vegetarian options and portions are large, so it's a decent choice.
