Our tour bus brought us to a truck stop/gas station for lunch. We weren't having another truck stop that day. We walked into the village and asked for a local restaurant. This was as local as it gets. As with every;thing in Iceland, it was overpriced. We ordered pizza. It was good but not worth $23. Glad we found it... More

We happened upon this place by accident and the lunch we was delicious and served by helpful friendly staff. It was a wet and windy day and the restaurant was cosy and welcoming.

There are only two restaurants in Vik, and our guesthouse owner recommended this one, so we went for it. As with all food (and everything else) in Iceland, it was expensive, but very good. We split a pizza with ham, cheese and pineapple (apparently Iceland is the only country other than Canada where pineapple on pizza is acceptable!). The crust... More

Had the grilled salmon. It was very fresh and very tasty. great presentation. Also, had a slice of the pizza. Ok - probably best pizza in Vik, but not New York or Chicago.

We actually stopped here to eat twice, partly because there isn't much around and also because the food was good. Add it to your list if you are a burger or pizza person.

A bit packed at times, but the food is nice and the service generally really friendly. Also a good place to have a sit down and a beer or a cake and a hot chocolate on a rainy day :-)

We stopped here because it was convenient for us and we'd read a good review in Lonely Planet. I had the 12" (why not in centimeters?) pepperoni garlic pizza and my wife had the 9" margarita with pepperoni. Both were good (please see photos). We shared a piece of apple pie with caramel and whipped cream - very good, but... More

We came for dinner on recommendation from our Airbnb owner and had a pleasant meal. The lamb was good and vegetation burger also quite tasty. Best of all were the three lovely Slovak staff who looked after us immensely well.

Pretty good food and surprisingly affordable, well for Iceland anyway. I went for the lamb sandwich, excellent and filling. The best restaurant we visited in Iceland

A very busy place, but worth it. Probably the best meal of our 7 day trip. The restaurant was nicely decorated, but the front entry was unlit and therefore hard to know if the correct door. We got a table right away, and the staff were friendly as they reset it for us. It was obvious that some patrons were... More
