The 7 course Prix Fix runs 12,900 Kr/person (approx $US 122/person). The food was the one of two best dinners we had in Iceland. The service was excellent until the end when it was hard to get the bill...as it was probably after closing. Definitely,...More

The place is very cute! The food was delicious and the beer tasty. However, it was fairly expensive. Beer was about $15 and the burgers were $25. While most of Iceland is very pricey, I was thinking it would be a bit more budget friendly...More
