Food was amazing, beer selection was incredible! But the service was the best part. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful especially with the food allergies in my group. Would highly recommend this great place!

Our tour guide booked us here. I believe he was trying to save us some money. It's a pub. I ordered the combination beef and lobster burger. It was not memorable. My wife said her fish and chips were okay, but how much do you...More

We wanted to try some tasty Icelandic food and we were not disappointed. The restaurant had a cosy, wooden setting. Not fancy, but very comfortable and the waiters were very attentive. We started our food journey with 'Grilled puffin in a jar'. The portion was...More

We visited here twice in 3 days, firstly with just my boyfriend for drinks, where we ended up trying the traditional Icelandic shot Brennivin. We had done a full tour of Reykjavik searching for an 'Icelandic' bar... didn't want to stop in the American/Irish/British bars....More

Not that i'd know but it feels like the name nails what this place is about. Except for the highly touristic clientele which would be the case most places it's very Icelandic. Don't come too hungry if your out of cash. V

Icelandic through and through. Icelandic cuisine with a twist. Not touristy, more the place for travelers to mix with the locals. The only bar in the world that serves all Icelandic beers and spirits.
