Came here for dinner, and had the most delicious fish stew, perfect homely food! More moderately priced than alternative restaurants in Reykjavik (2600ISK for one fish stew). Very friendly staff also, definitely recommend.

Wonderful restaurant for traditional Icelandic food. I had the soup, which has a fish option and a veggie option, which is vegan. I had the vegan option and it was richly flavored, the perfect start to our trip. I paired it with an oat milk...More

I agree with the other reviewers that said this place is overly priced - however, our meals were absolutely excellent. We had the catch of the day (cod) and the traditional fish stew. Both were awesome. The Icelandic bread was especially delicious. The staff was...More

Description
We like to think of Salka Valka as an extension of our own home-kitchen and living room. Experience a uniquely charming, soulful and welcoming atmosphere over hot & cold food, sandwiches & snacks, coffee drinks, organic teas & organic juices, wine & beer. Vegan options available daily. All food is fresh and prepared on the day. Might we add we are quite a colourful bunch of characters too, weird and wonderful! FREE Wifi available.
