Icelandic cuisine is the specialty of this old historical restaurant who has been serving Icelanders since 1981. We strive to create delicious meals from locally sourced ingredients while providing first-class service.

The menu includes our legendary fish and chips, Icelandic lobster soup, fresh catch of the day, mountain lamb and much more. Don't forget to ask for our bar snack taster menu if you want a real historical taste of Iceland as it includes fermented shark, dry fish and smoked lamb flakes.

The house is rich of history and dates all the way back to 1834. It was originally the first bakery in Iceland with living quarters upstairs. 

So if you are looking for an authentic place to dine in Reykjavík then we welcome you. Small groups can also book our presidential room for max 10 persons. We also welcome large groups counting up to 100 persons in our fully equipped banquet halls. For group bookings please contact or phone +354 551 4430
