A big amount to choose from but not great quality of food. The presentation of the food was OK but really nothing more than an ordinary buffet

We very much enjoyed the Restaurant Reykjavík weekend brunch. They provide a wide variety of excellent food, as much as you want, with juice or coffee. This, in Iceland, for around $60 for 2, is exceptional.
