Located right beside our hotel. Delicious fresh and nutritious food. Icelandic soup was terrific, served with fresh bread and butter was ample for lunch. Bright but basic, ideal for a quick lunch or supper.

We had supper three times here. No bad meals. Enjoyed the starters of hummus and breads. The fish was perfect, the sauces fresh, and lots of variety in the salads. Quiet later in the evenings. Really enjoyed our stays.
