Best restaurant in Reykjavík! Lovely atmosphere and a great service. By far the best fish you can get in Iceland. Could not recommend it more!

Thank your for your raving review. Welcome back any time. Buses no 16 and no 24 stop closest to our location and nearest large stop is Artun (450m walk) wich almost every other bus in Reykjavik stops.

My wife and I were extremely lucky to have happened upon this restaurant. Although they are located outside of downtown, we found there food, atmosphere and service to be outstanding. Highly recommend them.
