Ice-creams are delicious, with so many different tastes. The staff was also very friendly. Will go there again for sure !

We stopped here after dinner and to try the rye bread ice cream. The staff gave us samples of a few of the more "unusual" flavors. They were all good and interesting but the vanilla and raspberry we decided on were excellent. Next visit this...shop will be on our go to again list.More

If locals tell you to try somewhere, you definitely do it! It may have been dark and very cold, but the ice cream was amazing. Definitely worth the visit - especially if you like the idea of liquorice ice cream! There are a couple of...Valdis in Reykjavik so look for the nearest to you, and be sure to try a few different flavours at once - always a winner.More

It was so good we went twice! Great little ice cream parlour, brightly coloured with bench and table and chairs outside which in Covid times was really appreciated. I had the liquorice flavour and my friend redcurrant in a small tub. Generous portions not too...pricey, worth the money. Staff friendly.More

Came here for dessert after a great pizza at Flatey just down the road. Good choice of ice creams and the scoops are enormous! Salted caramel especially delicious.

Nice gelato to have. If you order 3 scoops you'll be full for the day so be warned. Try liquirish if yoi dare. They have vegan options. But ar the end of the day, its just icecream.

Would have loved to try it, but don’t show up five minutes before closing because apparently that means they’re closed.

Kooky little parlour just off the main drag. Great selection of flavours and generous portions either in a cup or a cone. Friendly staff, great ice, no toilets. Would recommend.

You can always review great places at TripAdvisor. Also, if you do an internet search for the website of the ice cream place or local YELP services, often a review can be placed on the website.
