We only stopped for a couple of drinks but the atmosphere was great and it felt very warm and cosy. It's a great location to lose yourselves for a few hours!

As beer is very expensive in Iceland the few bars in Reykjavik offer a happy "hour" that usually lasts a few hours. We walked the length of the main street and had a look at all of the bars and decided to visit Kofinn as it had a 2 for 1 offer. The bar is situated on a corner underneath... More

I love this place. Always stop in on my trips to Iceland. Maybe it's touristy maybe it isn't, but it's great either way. Nice staff. Great food and solid beers.

Happy hour + live music nightly = fun times! One might call this a dive bar, but it's a dive bar with culture and class. A good place to sit, drink and chat with friends.

It reminded us of bars in NYC's East Village before it became a gentrified tourist trap. We went... More

The soups we had were amazingly flavorful and in the fresh tasting brown bread bowls, was the perfect delicious and warm meal for a cold day. Highly recommend!
