Everything on the menu was outstanding but the Fish Soup was the best I've had in all of Iceland. So fresh, seems like it was caught minutes prior to serving. Lobster as well, succulent and so sweet! An extrordinary meal and very quaint location.

The atmosphere and food are fabulous. Not sure if it was just the night we were there, but the service was slow. Still, everyone was nice and the meal was really delicious! I would go back :)

We shared dishes with smoked puffin, reindeer, arctic char and lamb. All of them were amazing local dishes; prepared and served with perfection. If you want to treat yourself for a dining experience: this is your place to go!

Did not stay there only ate in restaurant. So many beautiful places to walk and run would recommend that instead.
