Reminds me of a greasy spoon in the States. It will provide something to put in your stomach, at a price. You are in the middle of nowhere, your hungry and they know it. Jack those prices on so-so food.

The food here was an average price for Iceland. I had a BBQ burger, not much bbq going on but burger itself was good. Someone else had the chicken burger, covered in what we think was mayo and not very good. It’s ok if you...More

The service people were kind of unfriendly, once they realized i only wanted skyr. Food is on the expensive side (though probably not for IS). So I went to the nearby market which is surprisingly well stocked (including fruit) with normal city prices.

The food here may keep hunger at bay, and won't poison you...and that's the good points done. It's advertised as cheap, and it may be cheaper than some other places, but it's also rubbish. Flavourless, cold stew for ~£8~...no thanks. You're better off getting a...More

Barely ok. Far below the par of other places. It is quicker and cheaper than most. It is part of a truck stop. It smelled of old deep fryer oil. On tbe positive side, it did allow you to have refills of coke. I had...More

Very delicious lamb goulash they have. The price is acceptable, the amount is plenty. Others have the lamb soup and they also claim delicious. The staff was quick enough to handle the line of more than 15. You can also enjoy the view of Reynisfjall...More

After a day of travel, we wanted a quick and simple meal. The food was filling and tasty - lamb soup and the magistrate burger. Prices were reasonable compared to other spots in Vik. This a nice option for when you don't want an expensive...More

This place is not fancy nor serves Michelin-starred food. However, after driving for 3 days and we just completed a two-hour hike, this restaurant was the best thing we had coming. It is a common stop for tour buses so whenever a bus stops by,...More

I don't know exactly, but it is open all day, probably from around 7am until after 10:00pm. By Icelandic standards the food is cheap, it's more of a diner than a restaurant.
