Good lunch spot outside of Reykjavik in picturesque town. Highly recommend the soups; fish soup in a tomato base and lamb soup were delish! Plenty of food at reasonable prices.

We stopped for lunch on a sunny day. We were very well received by the staff. We had lasagna and it was very tasteful. I can certainly recommend this restaurant.
