This is the best and most comprehensive seafood buffet I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying! Shellfish including shrimp, clams, mussels, salmon in every possible style, seafood combinations, a great selection of accompanying dishes and even chicken and lamb at the carving station! Salad was delicious and desserts deserve saving room for. Pavlova was spectacular, cheesecake was delicious, a... More

Fabulous restaurant for sea food specialties from Iceland. Set menu (well buffet) so you can choose the starter, main and sweet from the range on a 'pic n mix' basis. Set price for 2 or 3 courses and 10% discount with s city card...visit a few museums and get 10% off, no losers there! If it wasn't our last night... More

We like fish buffets and remember those on the sea crossing to Holland and Denmark so we opted for dinner at this large and comfortable restaurant in downtown Reykjavik. It had a nice atmosphere, lots of tourists like ourselves having dinner and the outdoor area was busy with drinkers enjoying the sunny evening. Service was friendly and efficient from the... More

This is one of the nicest restaurant in Reykjavik in a beautiful old yellow building. They have a buffet lunch with a soup, a good choice of cold fish, two types of mains, desserts and ice cream, all these for only ISK 2290 - the same price as a cheap pizza elsewhere. The service is also perfect. Recommended.

We ate there just before Easter in 2017 and I have to say that their seafood buffet was really nice.

Let me start by admitting that l'm not normally a fan of seafood - with the exception of cod, salmon and prawns - but when in Rome (or in this case, lceland) as the saying goes... Entering through the traditional doors we were met by smooth jazz music and aromas that would make your tastebuds weep with joy. The staff... More

Seafood buffet at $2250 kr per person. Food is very taste. Selection is great. Our 14 year old son was so satisfied after 10 days traveling on the Ring Road. What a way to conclude our trip!

Was there last end Mar on my first night in Iceland. Wanted to try seafood in iceland which its famous for so my hubby and I picked this seafood buffet restaurant. Environment and service is good , just the fishes were a bit salty and choices can be more. Overall it's a pleasant experience.

In Seattle we get a lot of delicious seafood served in our restaurant. I was in this Iceland restaurant with a tour group for the buffet dinner. The serve staff was nice, but the restaurant smelled like fish, and the seafood looked, smelled and tasted unappetizing and awful.
