So the girls were worried about what to eat while in Iceland. They did not want to eat puffin or whale or raindeer well this servers it all. But they ordered a delish beef Berger with fries and we very happy.

lamb burger was phenomenal, with melted tindur cheese that drips off and lamb bacon !!!!. I had the puffin in a jar which was the perfect amount to just taste it if you're not sure if you'll like it. loved it

The bartenders were very friendly, seemed like a decent bar. I had the grilled puffin and Icelandic stew and they were both quite good.

We decided to visit this place to try the traditional whale steak and we were happy with our choice. The staff was attentive, the food and beers tasty and there was even live music playing on that Friday evening. What a great atmosphere!

We ate here for dinner and loved our meal. The lamb burger, the lobster hot dog and fish and chips were all delicious and the service was attentive and prompt. Definitely worth a try.

Icelandic through and through. Icelandic cuisine with a twist. Not touristy, more the place for travelers to mix with the locals. The only bar in the world that serves all Icelandic beers and spirits.
