The icelandic seafood buffet is the best meal we had during our trip. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The wine and food unsurpassed by the other restaurants we tried. If ever we go back to Reykjavik we will dine here again.

We had the buffet here on a Saturday evening. It was quite expensive (6950 ISK) per person but the food was good. At this price, dessert and coffee was included. They had several seafood dishes to choose from, some beef and of course lamb. There...More
