We crossed the highway [route 1] from the Iceland air hotel and ate here. Just the kind of meal we wanted; not flash; just a good sit down meal with good seafood available.

Don't let the location fool you, behind a gas station. When we walked in we were the only ones, but by the time we left, it was nearly 3/4 full. Everyone at our table ordered the chicken penne pasta, which you could have received 5*...More

This restaurant was by far one of our poorest experiences in Iceland. The menu is totally bland and so was the food - lacking any sort of flavor and finesse. Very overpriced for what is served, but the service was the only thing that was...More

This is a cafeteria...NOT a restaurant! The staff is not helpful when ordering. It’s a bit confusing since you are rushed through due to bus tours. Over all, the food is decent, over priced tho.

We absolutely loved this place. The meal was great, and the location was perfect. A great way to end a phenomenal day. The Icelandic stew was delish!

My husband and I had a nice casual meal here, with very friendly service, when staying at the Icelandair Hotel Vik. We were happy with the prices (Iceland average to low) and the food was fine. It wasn't gourmet, but that's not what we expected...More

We had fish stew each. It was about £20 each, and was basically a bowl of mashed potato with some white fish (cod?) in it, at room temperature. Pretty rubbish, but at least we were no longer hungry. Perhaps we were unlucky; the place itself...More

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.

The front half of the Strondin (the part that is attached to the gas station and has basic burgers) is open all day, but the nicer Strondin Bistro in the rear closes at 2 and reopens at 6 for dinner.
