Salmon was 10/10

This place has been our best meal in Reykjavík! We had the tuna in avocado purée, the cheese board, pan seared scallops, lobster and beef medallions. All of it was superb! The waitress double checked each plate with the chef and they modified a few items to work. We got there early and the restaurant was super quite which I think made it much easier. Shared kitchen space, but the food was delicious and I’m feeling great!

The staff were so helpful/knowledgable as soon as I mentioned that I have to have a strict gluten free diet - they even mentioned the word Coeliac before me!! Fully reassured by all staff being made aware and all of whom sounded like they understood the severity of it. Got the standard ‘we handle gluten in our kitchens so cannot be 100% sure’ etc. But I had no problems and two other Coeliac’s were there on the same night. Deffo recommend!
I have celiac and ate here. The food is delicious and they are understanding. I did have to double check a couple things. They brought out something with a side of bread but were very good about checking for me and the host came by to apologize for bringing out the wrong plate. Celiac friendly but would be careful and ask questions. Got the Icelandic 5 course menu and was delicious!
Excellent food and celiac friendly, great staff. — update: we ate there a second time since it was great the first time and my celiac wife had a pretty bad reaction. So food was still great but it is hit and miss on the celiac safe.
Not a great place. They're very aware of celiac, but still cross contaminated my food. Super expensive too.
First impression of this tucked away below street-level jewel: Warm, red-lit, boisterous yet not overly loud, and the perfect choice for our date-night splurge on an otherwise budget conscious trip. As a celiac who's extremely sensitive to cross contamination, I research restaurants in advance (it's rated well on FindMeGlutenFree and I'll be reviewing there too). So we made a reservation and I went in with full confidence, which was confirmed when the hostess immediately turned to me with a smile and assured me they were prepared. I wanted to sample everything, so when I asked our lovely server whether she recommended the Icelandic Gourmet Feast or the Chef's Choice, she told me the former would be the best route. My husband chose the latter. That meant we were being served multiple dishes at different times. The chef came out to speak with me directly and suggested I avoid the included sample of Brennevin as it's a barley-distilled spirit (I took his advice). On a busy Saturday night, this well-staffed, smoothly run establishment had different servers running food, and each one described our dishes, and knew to confirm to me that mine was gluten free. When one accidentally (yet understandably) gave me a dish meant for my husband, our "primary" waitress swooped over and corrected things before he'd even finished speaking! I feasted deliciously and safely; every bite was exquisite, and the juxtaposition of the best of Icelandic dishes with the Spanish-style not-so-small plates and decor/music, plus the romantic yet relaxed atmosphere, made for the perfect experience in every way. It was a pleasure and an honor to dine here, and I thank each and every employee for making our last night in Reykjavik such a delicious delight.
helpful and knowledgeable staff. lots of options
Went here during my honeymoon - the food was really good and the server was familiar with Celiac& gluten issues but there is NO GLUTEN FREE MENU. My husband and I shared the Chorizo/Serrano starter plate (I only ate the horseradish sauce & honey jam onion topping - did not try the other 2 sauces because I can't handle too much spice) Dish normally comes with bread but was removed for us. Then we split the #2 (bacon wrapped scallops) & #44 (mushrooms). Many other dishes appeared to be GF or GF friendly. Would definitely go back!
I am Celiac and dairy-free - I chose several options off the menu and my server was able to make suggestions and ask the chef about variations. I had 3 wonderful dishes and didn't have any issues. I recommend it!
My favorite restaurant in Reykjavík! They are very eager to make sure the meal is safe and enjoyable.
They offer a 7 course Icelandic tapas feast and when I asked the waitress if it could be made gluten free she replied, "No problem," and didn't blink an eye. Some of the dishes were the same as my non-gluten free husband had, other had different sauces or other variations that they identified as gluten free when served. Great experience!
