A pleasant restaurant with a good menu and friendly service. We enjoyed the reindeer pate for an entree and then had Icelandic meat soup and the fish special which was delicious. The prices were quite expensive, but this is normal for Iceland.

The salmon was delicious especially with herb butter! This was followed up by apple cake with toffee sauce and home made ice cream ( made by one of the waitresses). A scrumptious dessert! The staff were quietly attentive which was great but also very friendly,...More
