As far as I was concerned about eating on gas station, it looked like i do not have many other options in the later evening. There is just burger joint open and some pizza place as they informed me, but I decided to stay when...I have seen the menu. As my daughter was cold from all the rain we decided to try lambsoup which they make and some warm tortilla with melted cheese which was excellent! Never expected this on gas station.More

The lamb was very tasty. This was called lamb stew and we asked for rice extra. It comes with bread.

Okay, this place is definitely fast food stop. We have been little bit annoyed to have burger again but they had some chicken tortilla and it was very good meal. Staff was friendly and we walked out very satisfied.

We ordered burger with egg on top and lambchops. Shared lamb soup. Miss behind counter was little bit stressed by group in front of us. Still she explained differences between lambchops and marinated lamb and told us that burger is from angus beef and thats...its very nice. She was right. That guy who was cooking called us for our meals and also got us refill on soup! We’ve been thrilled to get that good meals and smiles on gas station.More

We knew we had limited options for breakfast, but website indicated they were open for breakfast but in truth they didn't open until noon. Coffee and croissant were my breakfast from the self-service display case - which was good. Friend wanted some protein and found...skyr in their cooler one day, but not the following days so settled on a protein bar and coffee. This is a gas station so keep your expectations on that level and you will be satisfied.More

My family stopped by a little town of Vik after driving 2 hours, looking for something to eat. I was happy to find this place called Vikurskali, which offered both vegetarian and vegan options. I wanted to eat their veggie burger but I am vegan...and this was listed as being vegetarian. So I asked the SERVER (don’t know what his name was) what makes it vegetarian versus it being vegan. He stated it has vegetables (DUH). So I asked him what the sauce was, thinking maybe that is what made it vegetarian. And he tells me “There’s a restaurant next door’. Excuse me, but aren’t you a restaurant? So with that said, I did not order from this worker with the bad attitude. What made it worse was, he was also the cook! So how can he not know what’s in the food that he makes? I forgot to mention that we are visitors from Hawaii who were having such an amazing day, only to getting it ruined by receiving such terrible service from someone like him. I must admit that the two people in my group ordered not knowing my experience. So as we were sitting in the booth...a family (mom and 2 kids) walks in and asks if he’s open. I did not hear what he said to her. But her reply was ‘That’s why I asked!’ Sounding obviously upset. Maybe I should feel better that it wasn’t just me that he was rude to. But I did notice that the family was Asian, of which I am, too. So what am I to conclude about this experience? Racist much? Oh...and my niece ordered a ham and cheese sandwich. It looked like two pieces of grilled toast slapped together. It was so thin that she had to open it up to see it there was anything in it. Her review: ‘Mediocre at best’. I come from a state which welcomes tourists from around the world with ‘Aloha’. It is sad to see that I would encounter such a horrible experience in such a beautiful place as Iceland.

Great hot dogs option. Inviting view onto the seashore area. Pricey as are all Iceland eateries. Great service with honest descriptions of food choices. Nice beer selection. There is not much in Vik outside the hotel scene, and this restaurant is a valuable option.

As far as I remember the highest price for a meal was below 20EUR, with average well below (many cheapish burger options, for example). I wouldn't know about the opening hours. I hope this helps
