Karl is a wonderful ambassador for Iceland. Great customer service and the meal alone is worth the trip to the Lagoon. The icebergs are pretty spectacular as well.

Very good! Fries were great and the cod was delicious. Made when you order so it’s not sitting there pre made. Only wish there was tarter sauce but apparently just mayo is a thing here.

We were surprised by the quality of the fish and chips from this food truck. Fish was crisp on the outside and super tender on the inside. Once we got to the hotel, we read the other reviews and had to concur. Must try if...you are in the area.More

Fish and Chips better than London! Fish is local and brought in daily. The best fish and chips we’ve ever had ! A must stop if in the area! Make sure you use the “magic” dust.

Very much worth the short wait. The fish is very fresh and tasty. The menu is simple: fish & chips and Coke or Coke Zero or light beer.

I wasn't expecting to find food options at Jökulsárlón, but there were a handful of food trucks on hand. We tried Nailed It as the weather was a bit cool and rainy and hot soup sounded good. We tried the lobster soup and loved it!...Definitely worth it when you're visiting the glacier lagoon.More

I tried a few fish and chips places in Iceland and this one was our favourite. For some reason, the tendency was to batter the fish in a 'chicken nugget style' type of batter at most places. This was the only place that we tried...that battered it 'UK- style', the way that we are used to eating it. The fish was delicious and moist and flaky. The batter was light and airy and crispy. The fish was battered fresh right before frying. The person who served us was taking the order, money, and also making the food. Appreciate you :) thanks for the good food. The only con was the portion size. One piece of fish and chips for about 2000 ISK. Typical Icelandic price, but I got a lot more fish at those other places in Iceland that I tried. I guess that's what I get for buying fish and chips in Jokulsarlon (touristy AF).More

After seeing the long line and the great reviews we decided we needed to see what the fish and chips did truck was all about. It was a long wait but worth it. My husband waited down at the lagoon and my son and daughter...waited with me to order the food. It really is a one man operation with the same nice man taking your order as cooking the food and calling out your name when it is ready. perhaps not so efficient but I imagine there is a good reason for it to run this way and we were on vacation and not in a rush! When it was ready we ate down at the lagoon sitting on a bench watching the amazing water and seals.More
