Iceland is not a place for gastronomic delights. Hard climate makes many ingredients that are common in other countries unavailable in Iceland. In addition, things are very expensive there. To find out how much it costs, take US price and multiple it by 2 or...More

A brief menu but that is preferred. They have mastered the food they offer. They’re not a jack of all trades and master of none. We were surprised to find this level of quality in Vik.

This is a decent place to stop by at and have a decent lunch, while passing through Vik. The view towards the sea with the rock pillars is breathtaking.

Its a convenient restaurant of you want to have some Pizza's. It was a very busy restaurant during the evening but worth a visit. Service was a bit slow but that is what you should expect in most of the restaurants in Iceland.

I am glad we made reservations, there was quite a wait for those who didn't have reservations. Our waitress was efficient and food came when expected.
