The food was nice but all of Iceland's prices are much higher than we expected. Catch of the day, worth trying, extremely well cooked, my husband described it as the best fish he had ever had.

Loads of atmosphere, but unfortunately the service we received was very slow, the food was good, good portions but very expensive. Worth going for the Viking feel, the place is also acceptably clean.

A cosy and a warm place to stay with great staff with warm attitude. The best place to be to have a look into the old icelandic culture. In the restaurant you can eat almost anything from burgers to a real icelandic old food (and...More

We were a large group of people and we were greeted very well. The service was great and the food was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant as it is not just good it also has a great Viking vibe to it.

It was particularly busy so maybe the beer swilling party atmosphere was not happening. We were put in a corner so even further from it all. I am sure if busy, this place could be quite fun. Food as I recall was different and nice.More

We went in the off-season, there are hamburger, soup and fish dinners on the menu, no buffet. From the pictures in the hotel, it looks like the Viking feast goes on during a weekend of summer.
