Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was my birthday traveling in Reykjavik and so we were looking for a nice restaurant. Our hotel reception as endorsed by a cab driver recommended Brasserie Askur. It turned out to be memorable. I started out thinking I would order lamb, since I rarely...have it at home in the U.S. and it is a staple dish in Iceland. But I could not take my eye off of a surprisingly American item which I just love - barbequed ribs, corn on the cob, coleslaw and fries. When our attentive waitress told me that customers come from all over Reykjavik to enjoy their ribs, the decision was easy. The plate the brought out was as appealing to look at as it was to begin devouring. A full rack of baby ribs in a sweet but slightly tangy delectable barbeque sauce on a heaping mound of fries, with a piece of corn and a bit of coleslaw. The ribs were memorable. I normally shy away from baby backs that "fall off the bone" and prefer instead a firmer, meat that stays on the bone, such as St. Louis style ribs. Well these baby backs were the best I can remember ever having - maximum meat, minimum fat, stick to the bone but a dream to easily bite off, in that delicious sauce. And the never-ending fries were really good. My wife had a delicious seafood pasta which she could not finish, but it was a hit with her as well. So I highly recommend Brasserie Askur, and if you love ribs, go for it.More

I'm surprised at the bad reviews about this restaurant. We were just there staying at the Hilton Nordica (down from Askur) and ate at Askur 3 times. Each time it was very good food. Wait time for the food was normal, the staff was great...and provided us everything we asked for. We recommend this place.More

We were three couples there this monday, feb 19th. They forgot to heat the soup in the buffet, it was actually cold. They forgot to take our order or bring water, so we stood up and found a waiter. Then they brought the food 1...1/2 hours after we arrived, but forgot to bring one of us food, he got his plate after we finished eating. I had a hamburger, the bread was very dry. My friend had a club sandwich but they put it in a plain bun which she threw away. (A club sandwich is supposed to be on toast). This was beyond terrrible. It was as if they got people fresh off the street to do the waiting and cooking that evening.More

Was in your restaurant tonight, recommended by the hotel and what a disappointment. Two tables in after us they had got their meals and then our order was apparently forgot to be put through. Not once when we received the meal did they ask was...everything ok no. If I employed these staff they would be shown the door no representation at all they may as well be sitting at home. The waiters words they f**** up and we will give you discount and they did but to say worth the money certainly wasn’t. Have eaten throughout the world and can honestly say that your establishment leaves at lot to be desired. The staff are not front house surely they would have noticed no meal but we had to ask where the food was. I welcome you’re comments two disgruntled customers from UKMore

It was New years Eve, so you expect to pay a bit more. It was basically a UK Toby Carvery meal for ten times the price for three, with minimal drinks Only highlight was the lovely waitress, from the countryside, who used to manage Iceland...horses and distill her own potato spirit. Top marks she was lovely and lifted the placeMore

We wanted to get a quick cocktail and an appetizer after fun day in Iceland. It was seven twenty in the evening. The restaurant had a good crowd. We stood there for 15 minutes and no one acknowledged us being there.. We were seen by...every waitress and probably the owner. We left and went down the street to the Hilton that was jammed and were greeted warmly. Had great cocktails and a few small plates. Obviously we never darken their door again.More

Absolutely disappointing!!! We just had our meal from this restaurant. My partner ordered a lamb and I had the grilled Salmon. Thinking this should be safe as you can’t go wrong with salmon. It’s not rocket science to grill. The chef completely prove me wrong....First Salmon was raw, surely if you are an experienced chef you should know better - obviously not! So I sent it away, the girl who was serving us couldn’t apologise enough. The second Salmon was served as soon as it landed on my table I can smell something rotten!!!! Surely, you would think that this so-called chef would know the difference between rotten fish to none. How dare he served rotten food. Did he not think that one would know???? Absolutely disgusting! According to this so-called chef he can’t smell nothing. Either he is oblivious or delusional I’ll never know. Thanks to the other members of staff that also confirm it’s smells rotten Just because you can turn the oven and the grill on and flip a couple of burgers doesn’t make you a chef nor a cook. On this occasion this person definitely need to re-think how to cook. It’s a Salmon, it’s not rocket science. If you can’t be trusted to cook a simple dish maybe he should reconsider a different career.More

We were at the hotel nearby and went there for dinner. Since we arrived all staff were very friendly and the food was really good. We ordered fish of the day and it was delicious. I'll be back there.

Following good reviews from fellow Tripadvisors, we walked the short distance from our huge and impersonal hotel to this small and delightful restaurant where we had excellent food at a good price (for Iceland!!) and with good service.

20/10 don’t recommend. Unwelcoming from the start. Food is aweful. My husband just described it as “Golden Corral quality, if you paid $70 for one dish”. We noticed the Viking Cruise Line symbol on the window walking in, I’m not sure if this is why...there were so many great reviews online - then everyone around us were eating burgers - which do look nice. I’m sitting at my table in the restaurant writing this review and all the servers who have entered orders in the computer RIGHT NEXT us haven’t even asked why I’m not eating my $70 “filet” that tasted like shoe leather.More

Located near the Hilton, Askur offers solid local fare. The buffet is a good value (for Iceland), but we opted for ordering off the menu. The fish of the day was prepared as well as anyplace else we've ever dined. Friendly service. A good choice...away from downtown.More

Very busy restaurant on one of the main roads in/out of the centre of the city. Big menu so will be something for everyone. Some parking outside as you will likely drive here or be staying at hotel just along street
