We stop by with no reservations. The wait was not long. The food was good. Garlic pizza. Hamburgers. Beer. Good times. Price was on lower end of Iceland prices.

Like other reviewers, we chose Halldorskaffi based on previous reviews and the location, as Vik was the biggest town between Selfoss and Skaftafell where we were headed. Unlike most other reviewers, we found the restaurant to be quite bad. I found my burger to be one of the worst of my life; my son's veggie burger was not much better.... More

The hamburgers we ordered were really tasty and the staff friendly. A bit hard to find as its name is not on the restaurant front.

Our two families really enjoyed the tasty food - trout, lamb and soup. The deserts were especially delicious. Try the Viking beer!

This place was packed when we arrived so we were lucky to get a table. They have lots of tables crammed in but it didn't feel too overcrowded and had a bit of a buzz about it. I had the lamb sandwich which was really juicy, flavoursome and just really satisfying. My partner went for the fish soup which was... More

This is a cosy place with some character that I would strongly recommend to everyone visiting Vik. We loved the fish, pizzas and soups. Staff was friendly despite it a crazy rush hour and ofcourse we didn't mind waiting a tad bit longer for be served :)

This was a great place to eat, very central just off the main road in a very traditional building there is some parking opposite. We checked into our hotel first then went to eat pretty early. The place was already full, so we decided to hang around for a table which seems to be the norm. We didn't have to... More

We stopped at this place when we passed through heading east and coming back through two days later. Their soups (mushroom and cauliflower) are to die for. Their simple burger with fries was great too. I like that this place is off the main path and you have to venture a bit into Vik to get to it. It is... More

We had a super dinner at Halldorskaffi. Erik did an excellent job of looking after us and helped us successfully negotiate a few tweaks to the menu to accommodate our requests. It was great to be able to get some decent salads in Iceland; and we especially enjoyed the unique but homely desert options. This is a good place to... More
