One of the more traditional spots to eat in Reykjavik. Food is very interesting and everything taste pretty good. Most of the food we've eaten in Iceland are very good, but not particularly distinctive, so this was an interesting break.
This spot became a favorite during our Iceland adventures!! The mashed fish is delicious. I had it other places on the trip, but this was the best. Their geyser bread ice cream was good too... somewhat like a rye bread/cookies and cream flavor. This spot...has upstairs seating, a great view of Hallgrimskirkja, and clean bathrooms. Would recommend eating here.More
One of few places offering 'old' Icelandic menu. Who knows whether it's authentic, but certainly different including fermented shark served with a shot of local schnapps, and several fish dishes - all delicious. Helpful staff explaining ingredients if necessary.
Cafe rather than restaurant reflected in...opening hours. Close to cathedral so can get busy and booking advised.More
There are many restaurants and cafes to enjoy in Reykjavik, but nowhere else is there such a winning combination of authentic Icelandic food and stunning views as you'll find at Cafe Loki.
Located just yards away from the iconic Hallgrimskirkja church at the top of...the hill, Cafe Loki has been a firm favourite of mine since my first visit in 2012 - and it's still going strong now.
I've enjoyed many lunches here over the years, and on my most recent trip, I opted for the slow-roasted lamb shank, which came with buttered potatoes, carrots, turnips and a rich gravy.
It was just as good as it looked, with the melt-in-the-mouth meat cooked to perfection, pleasingly accompanied by the spot-on vegetables.
Sat by the window, the excellent food was enhanced by the sensational sight of the rocket-ship shaped church just across the road - this really is "food with a view".
The service was great with friendly staff on hand, backed by an enjoyably jaunty soundtrack of Icelandic music too.
I also managed to find room for a dessert, choosing the rye bread ice-cream dish, which was flecked with chocolate, and drizzled with rhubarb syrup - another mouthwatering selection.
Many things have changed in Reykjavik over the last few months, as we've seen everywhere else in the world.
Cafe Loki remains the same as it ever was - the home of authentic Icelandic cuisine, with the best view of Reykjavik's most famous landmark.
Takk fyrir for that!More
Lunch at cafe Loki is superb.
Authentic Icelandic food and very good coffee.
If you are lucky you will meet the waiter Mirceac from Moldovia.He is one of the finest people we had the good fortune to meet.Also his advice on what to eat was...excellent.
There is also a wonderful lady with long blonde hair who remembered us from a previous visit.Even when very busy she makes you feel very special.
A wonderful place for food lovers and the atmosphere is relaxed.
On fine days one can sit outside and hear the bells of Hallgrimskirkja.More
