Went there with few friends and we all loved the food and the whole place, just awesome! Service was very friendly, also the restaurant is very cool furnished and you kind of feel like you are in place in another country where the sun and cocktails are everywhere! Fully recommendation!

really nice "home cook" diner. Have few dishes at lunch special and of menu. Location is really nice if your taking a bus to the KEF airport, it at the bus departure hall. Better to have a bite there than at the airport.

I finally walked all the way from my hotel to the BSI terminal cafe just to have a go at Svio, the Sheep's Head. It was actually an affordable dish compared to most Icelandic cuisines served in restaurant. The sight might turn you off as it literally looks like a head on the plate, but I had mine served hot...

Kind of cafeteria style. The stew was very tasty, but overall I would say the food was just okay. Reminded me a little bit of an IKEA cafeteria.

I came here only because I heard they had the best sheep head in town. It is a diner located at the bus terminal in Reykjavik. The restaurant was clean with fast and friendly service. The sheep head was delicious. From the succulent meat on the cheek, the delightful chew of the tongue, and the delicate delicious eye ball, this... More
