We were a party of 3 who reserved a day in advance for dinner. We were initially shown to our table by our server, in a high traffic and a bit cramped area in the restaurant. Was okay, and I was chill. Within 3 minutes...More

As first-time visitors to Reykjavik soon discover, a meal at a sit-down restaurant can be very effective at lightening the wallet. While not "cheap" we found Snaps to be such a good balance of fun, friendliness, and value that we went twice in a 5-day...More

This is one of my fav places. Love the brunch, everything is good! For dinner steak bernaise is a must try and ohmy the fries are next level good!! The salads are also very good. The place is very cozy and has a nice vibe.

I opted for the catch of the day (white fish with vegetables) and a local IPA. The service was good and very friendly. It is connected to the Odinsve Hotel where I was staying.

This is the place to go when you want a fun night out and don't expect the food to be innovative or perfect. I recommend the duck and Boston sour!

No reservations possible after 6 p.m. That said, we turned up around 8 on a Saturday evening and had to wait just 45 minutes, which passed easily drinking cocktails in the downstairs bar. They came and called us when our... More
