Since the whole family was exhausted after the day’s travels, we opted to eat at the hotel restaurant. Turned out to be a good idea. Food was delicious, albeit we were still in sticker shock over Iceland pricing, it was still a pleasant meal. Recommend...the fish and chips.More

The brunch not worth the high price. Had to pay extra despite a gift voucher for the brunch which only added to the overall disappointment.

We stayed at the Hilton Nordica and had been driving all day from Hofn. So we were a bit tired and decided to dine in the hotel restaurant VOX. For starters I had beef tartare and my boyfriend tried the scallops. Both dishes was tasty...and lovely presented. The beef tartare is the best tartare I`ve ever tried. I ordered VOX Langoustine Soup as main course. It tasted absolutely delicious and was served in a very elegant way. The service was impeccable. We were served by a very stylish and elegant grown man who was incredibly good and skilled in his field.More

We had the most amazing meals at Vox that we never went any place else. The breakfast buffets were amazing. The traditional Icelandic Christmas buffet on Sunday was wonderful. We special ordered beef Wellington for our last night and were not disappointed. The whole meal...was amazing from the lobster soup to the Beef Wellington to the traditional Icelandic Christmas dessert.More

Pros: Fantastic food at a Reykjavik institution and a cool vibe. It is also a pretty restaurant.; Cons: Worst service I had in Iceland. We informed the staff of my wife's gluten allergies and they refused to make any accommodations. We had previously paid for...2 glasses of champagne from the lobby bar and the waiter asked what we were having and then HE HAD THE NERVE TO CHARGE US FOR DRINKS WE PAID FOR ON OUR OWN. In my entire life of dining out, I have never seen such BS. I went ahead and complained to the management and while they took the charges off, there was no apology or offer of another round of drinks. This place rests on its laurels. It is also REALLY FAR from downtown. I have flagged these issues to Amex Platinum and have asked that they be removed from their list of recommended restaurants in Iceland. I will also tell my huge network to go elsewhere. It only gets 2 stars because of the food.More

We had a wonderful vegetarian meal here after a day of tours. We enjoyed the seasonal salad, veggie burger, and a potato side. It was one of the best meals we had in the country, and we were very happy with the service.

Little bit expensive for this quality. I was expecting more quality for this price and small doses. This was a dinner. Bruch was good.

I had lunch with my Dad on a random Wednesday at VOX inside the Hilton Nordica hotel. I was pleasantly surprised to find the place lively with Icelanders. The lunch buffet was very popular but we opted for a la carte because it was less...expensive. My dad had a burger which he loved and I had avocado toast which was “meh” and kind of hard to eat but the fries I ordered were terrific and came with both ketchup and mayo. The decor and ambiance are upscale but lunch was perfectly casual. The service was good and I’d go there again probably to give the lunch buffet a try.More

We are a family of five - 2 adults and 3 children (11, 13 and 15 years old) and only had main courses, so my review is limited to them. My wife and the two older children ordered beef & fries. I ordered the lamb...fillet. Both dishes were excellent, although you may want to add a side dish for the lamb (I can at least recommend the fries). My youngest had the fish & chips, which was also very good. The service was very friendly and genuine. The place is clean and parking is easy - the restaurant is not far away from many of the big hotels and I suggest you try it out at least once before venturing further out.More
