Starters and main course were very good but not excellent. Is nicely located and the staff were nice and helpful.

Had a great time. Meet very nice people from Iceland and spend many hours talking to them (unfortunately with to many drinks. Service is friendly and the music is not to loud.

P.S. Learned even some few Icelandic words that night.

Had the appetizer sampler which was whale, scallops, lobster soup. All were excellent. One entree ordered was ling and another lamb. Fantastic. Host Laufar was wonderful. It wasn't a busy night so we had a chance to really chat with him. Setting in an old house was beautiful and charming. Not cheap but well worth it. Probably would be challenging for families with young kids who need to move around. Highly recommend.

Found this place as we where walking around town and thought let's give it a go. It was not to disappoint. Lovely food and drink and great hosts. Not too expensive considering we where in the middle if town. The ling fish was amazing. If we ever go back to Iceland we will call in again.
