The owners and people that work here, clearly have a goal to stay on the top of the best restaurants in Reykjavik, and I understand why they do, after visiting.

Genuin Icelandic hospitality, attentative and polite staff and a most sincere wish that you as a guest have a nice experience and enough to eat while you’re there.

You will have hot soup in a breadbowl (if a breadbowl is what you wish for), lots of smiles, the chance to drink Icelandic orange-soda (it’s great!) and free refill on your soup. While we where there they also had lots of free candy and sweets on the tables for their guests.

The soup is not the very best I’ve had (it was a nourishing and nice lamb-soup with carrots, potatoes and a little seasoning), but the place, the straff and experience as a whole, - excellent.

We popped in for lunch the place is only small but but busy constantly ,we now know why .The soup is superb only two types on menu our group tried both which were both given top marks . If you manage to eat it all you can get a refill at no extra cost .Staff were very helpful and friendly would definitely recommended you visit here

Maybe the name sounds touristy but once you enter you will recognize this is a local place where they have a passion to feed everybody! Both lamb and shellfish soups in bread bowl are delicious and heartwarming especially if you had a nice cold walk around❄️they also offer you refill for soup so have as much as you want!!! Do not miss to try the fisherman’s favorite which will become your favorite as well! And one more trick , if you want to have a beer with your soup/snack -they only serve soft drinks here- they ask you to pick your soup with you and go to the next door bar ‘Icelandic craft bar’ and have your beer from a nice selection and enjoy your food&drink there!

Laekjargata is the main shopping street in Reykjavik and located here is Icelandic Street Food. We stopped here for lunch after reading all of the fantastic Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed! GO TO THE COUNTER. Don't just step in by the door, go to the counter and order some soup. I got the seafood soup and was amazed at how good it was! Once I was finished, I was offered more! There was also a basket on the table with fresh coconut treats. Unlimited! Plus, there was quality street candy (my favorite) and brownies, also unlimited! We also tried the happy marriage cake and I have to say, it was delicious! My friend almost cried with happiness over the free refill she got of expresso, lol

The employees here were soooooooo nice!! I wanted to go back again before we left but we didnt get a chance.

Simple, but really good food and absolutely lot of it, since you can get a refill! We had shellfish and lamb soup, both in bread. Free small desserts are great idea. Would have loved to have pancakes as well, but just couldn't eat anything else. ;) Nice concept, nice staff, just keep going!
