I had lunch here once a week sheik staying in Reykjavik. Staples as vegetable tarts and soups take-out or eat-in. Friendly and no frills, much better than überhyped Gló.

This is a wonderful quiet place with a limited option of either a soup or a main dish - or both. The staff is friendly and relaxed and the food is healthy and tasty. The cakes are very good too. Food can be served immediately...More

Went there looking for a vegetarian lunch, got a really nice lentil soup, with bread - which looked like whole wheat/ rye on the side. Friendly service. Good food.

Any restaurant in Reykjavik is on the expensive side but , at last, here is one which is quite reasonable. The options on the menu change daily but the choice is very limited. However what is on offer is very good. Vegan options too.
