The pizza here is tasty - thin, crispy wood fired base, with plenty of melted mozzarella, and tomato sauce. We went for the Tropical (ham, pineapple and mushroom) and the Napoli (ham, green peppers and mushroom). We waited a long time for our food (a mix up as they were training a new waiter) I could see in general that food was served quickly, once our issue was identified, it was dealt with quickly by the manager, so overall great customer service. There is a nice vibe, and I would come here again.

My partner and I paid £60 for two small pizzas, garlic bread, a salad and two teas. We thought these prices were outrageous as it was our first meal in Reykjavik but we soon realised that these prices are pretty standard in the city. The pizza was nice but nothing to write home about. Service was quite bad.

We had been waiting for eldsmiojan to open as it was shut for Xmas eve and Christmas Day for a tasty pizza. We order two pizzas (one small and one special large), garlic bread sticks and 3 soft drinks came to approx 55pound. This is average prices for Reykjavik and their strong currency. Pizzas were ok and filled our bellies. Plenty of seating area to eat and they also offer a takeaway service. It gets very busy but the service was prompt for our food. Located right next Reykjavik lights hotel so you don’t need to go far if you need a pizza fix.

Myself and my boyfriend came across this pizza restaurant on our walk through Reykjavík from our hotel. As everything in Reykjavík is pricy, the prices here are reasonable for the area. The pizza was very tasty though and very filling. The garlic bread was also very yummy. The service isn’t very fast but the food was worth the wait. We enjoyed it so much we returned the next day. If you like pizza then it’s a great place to go as they have a lot of options.

For UK readers, note that the prices in most Icelandic restaurants is about double what you'd expect to pay in the UK - here was no different. Two pizzas (one small and one medium) and two soft drinks (free refills) for about £45 - this is to be expected.

The array of options is very good and the pizzas are warm, fresh and tasty. Although this is to be expected (and not seen as a negative from my point of view), the specials on the walls are all in Icelandic. They do takeaways as well.
