First impressions the place looked nice and atmosphere good. We were looking for a nice place for lunch and to warm up. The food was very expensive for what it was even for Iceland. We were used to the crazy prices but this seemed even...More

Centrally located restaurant/pub. We heard live music as we passed on the previous evening and we called in for a drink on the off chance of more music. A five piece band turned up and were excellent. Previous reviews commented on the price of drinks...More

Deliciously cooked salmon dinner, We had to wait a bit for a server but once we placed the order things were fine. Also, the other server came and happily billed us separately with her machine, right at the table.

We had lunch here and I'm not sure why the service staff seemed unorganized but we didn't get our drinks until our food arrived, and the food came out a few plates at a time (and not given to the right person in any case),...More

We wandered in during happy hour and glad we did otherwise it the prices would have been eye watering even for Iceland. We had four pizzas and a few drinks. The pizzas were lovely and the Viking ale decent. All in the bill was £131,...More
