Excellent service and "Bistro/Bar" atmosphere. Had Icelandic meat soup and mussels and local beer on tap for lunch.

We decided to stop in here for lunch. Service and food were great. Had the meat stew and a chicken burger. Both were really nice. Was surprised his was so far down the list on TA when I went to write the review. Worth stopping.

The food was very average, typical tourist friendly restaurant with a little bit of everything but low quality. I ordered one croque madame and one pizza but at first I received just 2 croque madame so me and my boyfriend ate at different times.

The menu seemed promising but the food was not particularly good. We had burger, chicken sandwich and the seafood pizza. The latter was topped with uncooked jumbo shrimp and we were quite worried about getting food poisoning from this. The burger and sandwich was ok....More

I found the Jazz Jam session listed in the Reykjavik Grapevine newspaper. So I decided to eat there before the music started. Reykjavik is a very expensive city and their menu reflects that. The Croque Madam was pretty average. Lots of French fries though.

The staff was nice enough. It was 3pm on a Thursday afternoon and completely empty. My kids and I had wings, a pizza, garlic bread, and a bowl of soup. All were fine, not great not bad. The bill was over $100 in US dollars....More

We were hungry and this place was convenient so we tried it. Nothing good about it nothing bad, nothing really memorable in any way. Go in eat and leave. Service was unremarkable the food was decent enough but just average
