We found this place by chance as we wanted a coffee, then decided to have quick bite to eat so chose a portion of chips and garlic bread. The food was very good with decent size portions. Salad that came with garlic bread was added bonus. Reasonably priced.

Called here for a beer as every where else was closed, friendly staff and lovely view out to sea. We didn't eat here as we were having a look around Keflavik for somewhere to eat and this was the first place we stopped, popular with the locals.

First, this location changed ownership - I don't know how long ago. So... Um. Not sure what the previous people did, but I love these owners. It isn't often that I save a review for last because I would be writing WAY too long otherwise. Rain looks like an old Irish bar from the outside - and in fact there... More

This restaurant is right by the coast and good value for money. The staff were very friendly, spoke very good English and my fish meal was beautifully presented.

While in Iceland a few days we tried seafood and soups in other cities including Reykjavik, but I was really glad we found the Ràin restaurant before we left Iceland. The family atmosphere was good, the Irish Coffee was better, but the Halibut and Lobster Stew was absolutely amazing. We will be back to Iceland and we have already said... More

There are windows with a beautiful view of the water. Food and drink are both excellent but expensive (everywhere in Iceland.) However, if you are going to pay a lot everywhere, it's still nice to get quality for the money and this establishment does just that.

Visited here on the way from airport to Blue Lagoon. Decent food with nice service and great view. Nothing bad to say although this was neither exceptional.

I spent my last night in Keflavik and Rain seemed like the only "local" option of the establishments open. The restaurant was spacious and set up to handle large groups of dinners. The wait staff were friendly and helpful when it came to suggestions. It was a quiet night when I dinned and service was quick and food good. Like... More

Welcome to the Eighties! Keflavik is hardly a place one would go to for food so this large, centrally located restaurant is as good a bet as any. We had a pretty decent main course of fish for lunch before making our way back to the airport and while the dining room was deserted and looking like it had seen... More
