My wife and I came here on our last night in Iceland, we had a sharing platter for starter then 2 main courses, as well as a couple of alcoholic drinks, and this came to just under 9000ISK which is reasonable for Iceland. The staff were really nice too.

We had a delicious meal at actually reasonable prices in expensive Reykjavik . The chicken wings are fresh and tasty, also a good portion of lamb skewer. The place is somewhat loud, but good quality for the price

Called in here for lunch with the family. Accommodated easily and made to feel welcome. Food is mainly centred around Burgers and American style dining. Good choice and large portions. Childrens menu also offered
