This is quick, good food at a great price in comparison to everywhere else in Reykjavik. Its a little out the way but its quite romantic and cosy in there. My food was lovely my boyfriends bacon and cheese burger was over done for him but we did really appreciate the quick arrival of food and great value for money.

Read the reviews and decided to give the burgers a try. Food was good. You order at the bar. Restaurant is very small. Feels like a local hang out. Good place to grab bite in a city that is ridiculously over priced.

No frills here, small selection on the menu. But very good sized portions, excellent value. What they do do, they do well. Fast service, too.

Excellent food, at a friendly price. The burgers were very tasty and the fries were the best we tasted so far in Reykjavik. The service was also pretty fast.

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend in Reykjavik and I had looked into this place before we visited. It appealed as its hidden away from the main streets and attracts the locals (and apparently doesn't have wifi). It's basically a scruffy pub but with great food, beer and nice chaps at the bar. A refreshing change... More

We stumbled across this place on our first day in the city. Food was good, fast and affordable. Bar had good selections. Looked like mostly locals come here, a few tourists stumble in on their quest for food. I liked the food and quiet relaxed atmosphere and would come back. Friendly staff :)

Pretty easy to find, just of the main drag of Snorrabrout. You have got remember that Iceland is super expensive and this little gem is a budget (£) restaurant. We ordered a double cheeseburger and fries with a pint of beer & cheeseburger with a Diet Coke and it still cost us £37:40 ($47 / $44 / ISK 5,260 -... More

Local restaurant, could be easily missed if not looking for it specifically. Good value for money and a cosy little place. Would recommend.

Quite difficult to find but well worth it when we got there. Very reasonably priced me and my wife had a full meal and a beer for £15 each which for Reykjavik is pretty good. Food was great and staff very friendly
