3 of us had dinner. There’s not a lot of options in Vik so places get really busy at meal times, make sure to beat the crowds by going a little earlier than normal. Service is not very attentive, I would say due to how busy it gets, but staff were nice and pleasant. Super simple place, but nice food... More

Can get extremely busy and staff can tend to be not as attentive. A little hard to find at first but as you go down the road, there will be parking on the left, and the restaurant is the white building opposite the parking lot (will have fairy lights on at night). The floor is also quite slippery (well, it... More

We stopped here for lunch since highway 1 was closed for a few hours. Shared a large veggie pizza, which was quite good. Would visit again!

This would not be my first choice of eating out experience in Vik. The food was fine however the service was ordinary and not very attentive. even after asking it took several further requests to even get water for the table.

We split the garlic butter with salami pizza, and it was amazing! Better than any American pizza I've had. The service was friendly, and not quick, but not slow. The price was reasonable for splitting a pizza.

I was in Iceland for 6 days and in Vik for two; I had the best meals in Vik! I ordered the Mexican chicken pasta from Halldorskaffi and it was absolutely delicious. I love Mexican food and was delighted to see something with guacamole on the menu. The pasta was fresh and flavorful and the chicken was cooked to perfection,... More

Good and fast service, food was ok (pasta with prawns, hamburger, vegetarian burger), and we did not have to wait for a table. Three stars because the price is very high. Sadly this seems to be in line with the rest of the town.

We arrived at our cottage near Vik much later then we had planned. We got into Vik to look for food and everything was closed except for Halldorskaffi. The food, service, and atmosphere were all excellent - far better than we could have hoped for from the "late night" place in town. Thanks - we'll be sure to stop in... More

We were staying at Guesthouse Vellir about 10 minutes drive from Vik. Read good reviews for this place and Sudur Vik. Came here on the second night of our stay and found that not only could they seat us (Sudur was busy) but the atmosphere and food was great too! Really glad we came. Had trouble finding it, it's not... More
