Nice spot. Food was just okay. The salmon starter was excellent. My son liked his pasta. I had a calzone and my husband fish and chips and we both thought our meals were ok. Spent about 30pp no drinks. Service for us was fine.

We were the only ones there, which didn't bode well, but the food and service were both good. Couldn't beat the lovely view of the river out the east windows.

The servant we had didn't speak Icelandic and didn't understand English properly. Asked for a pizza with a slight change of the menu and got a wrong pizza as she didn't understand English good enough. That can happen but what came after was really bad....More

The food here was good. The staff gave us a feeling we were intruding. We went here after a swim at the local pool. We were a bit on the late side for lunch, so we were the only ones there.

We were pretty desperate for somewhere to eat. This place was fairly busy. We shared a pizza that was okay. Everyone else had wine or beer with their food and were enjoying themselves.

Iceland is very expensive for food and drinks.. its due to a few factors, but mainly due to the location of Iceland and what can grow in a climate that is often at 0. I found this restaurant to be very reasonably priced, with good...More

So there wasn't anything particularly bad about this restaurant, it is just very underwhelming. We opted for pizza which was ok. I had one with pesto and prosciutto and it was very salty and could have done with a few more minutes in the oven....More

The restaurant serves a rich variety of local plates and global favourites. We also have a fully-stocked bar and a terrace overlooking the river, perfect for relaxing on a sunny evening.
