Amazing Restaurant!

My wife and I visited during our honeymoon trip in Iceland. The owner was very friendly, the food was fantastic, and the interior of the restaurant is SO COOL! You feel like you are really in a Viking longhouse. I can’t recommend this place enough.

Unique restaurant and good food!

This building is worth a visit whether or not you decide to eat there. They put a great deal of effort to create this immense turf-roofed house. A limited variety on the menu, but still a treat. The hosts were welcoming and very friendly. Worth a stop.

We found this place on Trip advisor and rang on the off chance they could fit us in. Luckily they were doing a small party and were happy to fit us in. The food was fantastic and the place was beautiful! I would highly recommend a visit and it is excellent value for money compared to Reykjavik.
