The food here is pretty good, though not gourmet level, but the real attraction is the decor and the performances. I had a very tasty lamb sandwich, my wife had a burger, and we were both pleased. We also enjoyed the singers and story tellers,...More

We were in Iceland on a choir tour and had been booked into the restaurant for a "farewell" dinner. I was skeptical that it would be a tacky show and mediocre food. I was very pleasantly surprised --the Icelandic folk singer was phenomenal and the...More
