This Bar/restaurant is fine for a meal and if you are staying at the Laxnes Hotel you get 10% discount off the meal prices. The menu is not huge but offers a reasonable choice. There is a 'Happy Hour' but it does not start until 21.30.

Heard good reviews, but probably only because it's competition is a KFC! Nice enough staff and setting, but could definitely try harder with the menu and pricing

I tried this place for a quick burger and had the BBQ Bacon burger that looked very nice on the menu. it was too expensive toward the quality. The meat was like the burger was pressed to hard and it had too much sauce on it. The soda was flat but the fries where just fine. Bit unprofessional for a... More

It's a great place offering good food and a good relaxing family atmosphere ,so good we... More

As this was the only restaurant within walking distance of our hotel we ate here 3 times. As it's a sports bar we didn't quite know what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised on our first visit by how pleasant it was. We received a very warm welcome from the waitress and were quickly shown to the table, given menus... More

This is the 2nd time we have visited here on our stay to Iceland. And the food is simply amazing the staff can't help you enough. The food is worth every penny you will be stuffed after eating here. Our son had a child's pizza and could not finish it. We had KFC one night and wish we had bothered... More

We were staying at Hotel Laxnes (a 3 minute walk away) & tried this place for dinner. I had the ultimate burger with sweet potato fries & my husband had the fish of the day "Tusck". Both dishes were absolutely amazing and the service was welcoming and efficient. The restaurant/sports bar has plenty of tables, is spotlessly clean & also... More

My daughter and I walked into this place during the Eurovision Music finals and everyone was lined up at tables so they could view the event on large screens! It was a strange vibe as we walked in and had to go to the bar to get someone's attention and get seated, but then service was fine. We tried the... More

Good restaurant and bar in the heart of Mosfellsbaer. Short walk from Hotel Laxnes and next to the largest super-market chain in Iceland. Great quality food, the best place in town to watch the sports and live music on fridays. We have three large HD projectors and 4 televisions so you can enjoy your favorite sports to the fullest. Fully equipped bar with a great icelandic beer selection.
