Atmosphere is neighborhood Cosmopolitan! The Soup, Salad, Cheese and Bread Bar more than met expectations! The Lamb Shack was perfect! My wife had the Fish of the day and was impressed! Check the Dessert Menu first! White Chocolate Mousse with berries was well worth saving space for! Staff friendly and willing to explain menu! 5 star

Really was very tasty, very busy which is the sign of a good restaurant not on the main strip. However the service was exemplary, fast efficient pleasant with no pressure. It was amazing to see the turnaround that met the Saturday night onslaught, people never stopped arriving and they ensured all were seated. We were very impressed with the sheer... More

We were at City Park Hotel just 2 blocks from this restaurant. We ate there twice. They had a very nice salad and soup bar including excellent bread choices. The hamburgers were declared to be very good, the panfried chicken breast was very moist and tasty, the Chicken pasta were well prepared. Yes, the food was a little pricey but... More

This restaurant is practically next door to Hilton Nordica and we went there before heading off in search of the Northern Lights. It was very busy at 7pm with folk doing similar. Main courses start at around £30 but include soup, bread and salad bar so pretty good value for Iceland. I had the seafood gratin which was first class... More

Nice 'local' restaurant with friendly staff. The food was excellent and the portions were really big. Had soup and salad bar starter which was nice and the club sandwich to follow which was very tasty. Would definitely go again.

Full of locals and tourists, we were not sure if the staff were used to it being quite so busy as service was a little lacking at times. When it came however it was friendly. The food was relatively simple but tasty, offering good value.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel as it was down the road. The restaurant had a really nice feel and staff were friendly. They had a wide variety of food which is always nice as my partner is vegetarian and had a fair few options. I had the tamoto pasta there which was lovely, very saucy and full... More

We were staying in early December at the Hilton Nordica, and asked at the front desk for a casual not outrageously expensive place to eat. They directed us to Brasserie Askur, saying it was owned by some locals, and that they or others they have steered to the restaurant have never indicated a bad experience. Place was an easy walk...

The set meal of soup, salad, lamb and chocolate mousse was lovely. Thhis is a very busy family friendly restaurant with a reasonably priced family friendly menu. It is not cheap by British standards but we felt it was good value and the service was excellent, Ever child eating on Christmas Eve was given a gorgeous teddy bear pity I... More
