Loved this place. The food was fabulous and it felt like we were eating in someone's home. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. I highly recommend. If you're a fan of Crème Brulee then you must try it here. Best I've ever had.

I had a lovely meal here but it is more expensive than some of the other restaurants in Selfoss. However, the staff and service were absolutely outstanding!

Cozy restaurant with excellent service and food. We ordered lobster soup, salmon, pasta and chocolate mousse as dessert. Each of the dishes didn’t not disappoint us at all ... Price a little bit at high end.

Excellent food, creatively presented. We loved the soup served from a teapot, the fish, and the desserts were some of the best anywhere! The ginger creme brulee with passion fruit, honey ice cream, and caramel was wonderful!. The chocolate mousse with strawberries, pistachio ice cream,...More

Only you can make the reservation at the restaurant directly. I wouldn't rely on TripAdvisor members to make a reservation for you.
