I really enjoyed both my main course and dessert I had at this place. The restaurant is a great place to try out traditional Icelandic meals. Staff explained exactly what was on the plate, including how best to eat the fermented shark. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed hot bowls of lamb soup on a cold rainy day in April. This is the place to stop after visiting the church. Recommended!

Hello, Café Loki is around 50 minutes from the airport Keflavík. We are in front of the big church, Hallgrímskirkja
