We popped in out of the rain hoping to get some food to warm us up but after waiting over 10 to be seated in restaurant part with nobody appearing we gave up and left. Despite being after 7pm on a weekend the place was empty of staff or customers. Says a lot really

Stopped here on the way back to the airport. Staff were very friendly. I had the lobster soup which was really good. It had a small lobster tail and bread served with it. Tack!

We found this place by chance as we wanted a coffee, then decided to have quick bite to eat so chose a portion of chips and garlic bread. The food was very good with decent size portions. Salad that came with garlic bread was added bonus. Reasonably priced.

Called here for a beer as every where else was closed, friendly staff and lovely view out to sea. We didn't eat here as we were having a look around Keflavik for somewhere to eat and this was the first place we stopped, popular with the locals.

First, this location changed ownership - I don't know how long ago. So... Um. Not sure what the previous people did, but I love these owners. It isn't often that I save a review for last because I would be writing WAY too long otherwise. Rain looks like an old Irish bar from the outside - and in fact there... More

This restaurant is right by the coast and good value for money. The staff were very friendly, spoke very good English and my fish meal was beautifully presented.
