Probably best place in town. I did not pay much attention to interiors, it was just good. The selection was reasonable, what I like was that on draughts the had only local breweries (fridge was full of foreign staff). The guy behind the bar really new what he was offering. The only issue is was they refused to let me try the beer before I bought a full pint (for enormous price).
Cosy downstairs bar. Had trouble finding it and went in the wrong bar initially (thank god it wasn't that one, fucken wall to wall barstools and posers - bunch of cunts).
There is a restaurant over the top and off to the side and some snotty waiter asked us what we were looking for and sniffly pointed downstairs when we told him. Cunt.
The long and short is - not easy to find because it's not well signposted. However - worth the effort. A good selection of local beers and good selection in bottles. Service was good and there was a nice atmosphere here, quiet but friendly.
Prices were the cheapest we came across in Reykjavik. That doesn't mean you won't need a second mortgage, you just won't need to sell off any internal organs as well.
Been in this “pub” during happy hour. Ordered two beer with same colour and haze, the pubblican serve me with no indication, so i gotta guess. Happy hour is a fake, focus only on 2 beer on a list of 16. Overrated. It’s gonna be a long road to be a REAL pub.
In the "craft beer" part of Reykjavik. Located under the restaurant with terrible fish smell, also in the bar (so that's a definite minus for non-fan of fish). It may have the widest selection and perhaps it's deserved to place on the top of the list, but the vibe just didn't work for me. Prices are Icelandic, typical. Would visit again, though it didn't really convince me.
Visited later evening on a Saturday night. Interior is casual, with low and high tables as you enter, and the bar in the back. Service is at the bar. Also a few tables outside on the patio. Beer selection if 15 beers on draft, full pours on as a taster tray. I believe the taster tray had pre-determined beers, though didn’t really look into it. Service was quick and helpful. The crowd was mostly young tourists, though a few of the tables had Icelandic beer nerds. Very friendly vibe, everyone was having a great time. My favorite place to have a beer on this trip to Iceland.
82 = ***½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
