We had 2 meals here. One during the week and wine and beers were on happy hour.
Fish and chips were tasty as was the burger. Sav blanc and chardonnay both very drinkable. 2 lovely waiters with good chat

During the first visit we had food envy on the pizzas and went back another night for a quick meal between golden circle tour and northern lights trip. No happy hour at weekends.

Good value compared to other restaurants in generally pricey Reykjavik.

We stopped here to have a really quick dinner before our Northern Lights Tour so we told the waitress (a local) we were in a hurry and asked her how long it would take for six pizzas. 'I don't know, I will ask', she said. She never came back and left our table unattended for 10 minutes...

We were about to leave the place when a new server came over, a young guy with yellow hair called Christian. He apologized to us, sorted everything out and made us forget about the first waitress being really friendly and making us laugh with his sarcasm.

The pizza was good, but all the staff except our server looked kind of rude and unfriendly. It doesn't make sense to hire an extrovert and funny waiter and authentic zombies for the same restaurant.

Our party of 8 made the mistake of choosing this restaurant for an evening meal on one of the nights when visiting Reykjavik a few days ago.

It started well, with a good choice of dishes on the menu and we all chose our mains, however we were informed a fair while later that a few dishes were not available so alternatives were chosen. We then were served all the mains and the starters together which kind of defeated the object.

Service was a little slow, with drinks being forgotten about and a general lack of atmosphere in the back room of the restaurant.

The icing on the cake came when asking for the bill, there were 12 mains on the bill despite there being only 8 of us and to say the revised bill was still expensive is an understatement. Shame as we wanted to enjoy the evening.

Came here for pizzas, we were starving so had one each which was more than enough but very expensive! The choice of pizzas is very good and the staff are nice enough.

We stopped here on or first night, food was nice (both ordered pizzas), although based on quality and what were eaten since it was expensive in comparison. There were some dance lessons going on in the back room which was nice to watch! Staff were really friendly! Worth a visit for drinks, for food there are better options
