Come here to get some good pan-european food; pasta, etc., but also note the fresh Icelandic faire as well. This is definitely a spot local folks come for a meal out, so don't expect the normal touristy offerings (we were happy to be without them!)....More

The food here was really, really good. The atmosphere very cozy. My boyfriend had the "Shut Up Burger." He said it was one if the better burgers he's had in his lifetime - it was juicy, cooked medium rare with good accompaniments on the burger,...More
