The seats are not that comfortable but it is fun to touch and use the shields for photos. The food was good and you can... read more

Drawn in by the promise of Vikings we visited for an evening meal. It was pretty empty when we came to visit, but then it was snowing and it is January so maybe it does get a bit busy during high season. The whole building is decorated to look like a longhouse, of special note is the paintings on the... More

Make sure you're hungry, and ask the waiter/waitress what things are-they are happy to explain. They are open from 6pm, and this is the only bar to the hotel

Eating in Iceland is expensive - everywhere! The Viking Village restaurant is an interesting place to eat. Its Viking theme is well done. The food is fine - not gastronomic, but quite acceptable. It was worth visiting for the atmosphere and surroundings, but the bill meant I wouldn't visit again.

Awesome food like lamb chops and whale meat. Interior is based on a viking tavern with intricate detail. There are many pictures on the walls depicting the old settlements. Over all a great place to eat in Reykjavik.

As we entered the restaurant we were greeted by a warm atmosphere and friendly staff. The menu was ok but drink selection was limited, we both went for fish & chips which were tasty but at kr3,900 each (roughly £20) it was expensive, for dessert we had skyr cake which was also nice. Overall we had a good experience and... More

The building is very fun and the whole viking theme allows for a fun dining experience. I was here for the 23rd Dec. Christmas buffet, very authentic and tasty food, little bit pricey but worth it.

Food mediocre, expensive prices . Unless you're having their buffet, very limited choices. However, very nice staff and fast service.

Wow! December 4, 2015 we had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant for their Viking Christmas Buffet/Feast! We were welcomed warmly and promptly seated; within a short time our server came to take our drink order and we were then ready to head to the viking longboat that was filled with all types of delicious offerings! One side offered... More
