Run by women happy to introduce newbies to authentic Icelandic home cooking. Soup to dessert cafeteria style, with many choices for each course. Simple but substantial food in a modern Scandanavian style dining area. Closes early, so check out hours.

This place is a buffet style home cooked restaurant where you pay for the highest priced item ordered. The food was exceptional and the cod with onion butter sauce was phenomenal. You get unlimited rounds so I got 2 orders of the cod. The lamb...More

This is not fine dining. The informal cafeteria style restaurant is frequented by locals. I came here for lunch. Just 2 minutes from the Hilton Nordica. The formula is very simple. There were three main courses on offer on this particular day, roast lamb, beef...More

If you want a more reasonably priced meal - come here. If you want generous portions - come here. If you want some traditional ‘home cooked’ Icelandic food - come here! Really friendly, canteen style dining, obviously popular with the locals and is becoming more...More

This is a cafeteria-style dining room. I think they serve dinner starting at 5:30 and have about 4-5 entrees available. The menus are all in Icelandic so it was a good thing we arrived a bit early so they could explain what the entrees were....More

We wanted to try Icelandic food and we found Mulakaffi- so worthwhile! It was really cheap compared to other places we stopped at and we got to try fermented shark, whale and other Icelandic delicacies. The best part was dining with the locals, who all...More

This is real Icelandic home cooking and you get three courses and coffee for ISK 6000 for two. If you are really hungry you can go back for more. Bearing in mind most cafés charge ISK1000 for 2 Coffees alone. It was so good the...More

The food is very good and probably the cheapest in Reykjavik. You can choose between three dishes, salad bar and two soups are always included. The interior is not cosy, it looks like a canteen.

The servers were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was an excellent value given the quality, quantity, and price. I highly recommend this restaurant for a taste of what locals eat. Moreover, it’s a great venue for families: clean, large tables available, and affordable (for...More

You could probably get just the vegetables/sides from the main meal, but it would not be *strict* vegetarian.

You can get seconds of whatever your main meal...so if you had fish the first time you cannot have meat as a second only more fish. Salad and soup all you can eat. We did not have drinks, only water, coffee is included.
