Location- very good as it's right in the city centre. Atmosphere/inside- bit of a mix of Mexican posters and more random decoration such as hanging fish ornaments. A bit cluttered and not that stylish. Service- relatively bad as it was so busy and no staff acknowledged the queue for a good 10 minutes. It was busy as it was Christmas... More

We ended up here as a last resort because many of the restaurants were closed over the Christmas holiday. The food was absolutely horrible and very overpriced. There are so many amazing places to eat in the beautiful city of Reykjavik. Please do not waste your time of money here

Worst dining experience I've EVER had! Waiting outside on Christmas Eve for 2 hours and 2 hours to be seated (even though lots of tables available). Waiting outside for TWO hours in minus 8.... Seated at 3 hours and served at 4 hours! Food was awful, staff were WORSE, prices DISGUSTING, no apology, tables and seats everywhere so why the... More

Welcomed and seated quickly. We aren't ready to order food straight away so they didn't take any drinks orders either. Menu looked good and reasonably priced but when it came it was disappointingly average. Everything comes with nachos which wasn't mentioned so when I ordered some Nacho's to go with my salad we ended up with far too many. My... More

Really nice Mexican located in downtown Reykjavik. They do not take bookings, so we were lucky to get a table when we arrived. Quick service and faultless food! I was served the most amazing beef fajitas I've ever seen! Huge piece of perfectly cooked steak and lots of toppings and ingredients to choose from! The cocktails weren't anything special so...

We ordered 3 plates and 2 were finished (finnish like she said). And she came with an extra plate we didnt order, a camomille instead of tea, a cold... More

We were there on Christmas day and this was one of the few restaurants that were open. it was -4 degree celcius outside and when we walked in the only table that was available was the one right next to the door. We asked if we could go upstairs and the waitress refused saying they are serving food only downstairs.... More

My husband was craving a burrito so we stopped in Tabasco's. It is located at the lower end of the tourist area and views from the window are great! We were seated immediately and our drinks came quickly. The good is typical Mexican fare with a few Icelandic items. We all ordered Mexican. The food was what you would expect... More

Lovely little restaurant, the food is delicious. We had Minke whale and fish of the day, absolutely fantastic and wouldn't hesitate to go back. Prices reasonable too.

Our first meal in Iceland - looks reasonable from the outside but the food and service is very poor....Nice enough staff (but only 1 person serving everyone meant slow service - even though only 3 other groups were present) but made the mistake of ordering Nachos - was probably the worst ever had (tasteless with very little meat and processed...
