Excellent fish for a quick meal enjoyed sitting out on the benches or tables right next to the harbor. Very fresh fish, with a nice crisp coating that is light and not greasy.

I grew up in the Midwest, dairy country, steak, meat and potatoes, Friday night fish fry. I actually prefer fish to meat, but also came from a large family, so if you were late to the table, your option was to dine from what was...left. Long story short, I loved the fish from this little fish/chips food cart, parked outside a gas station, just before you get to the Keflavik airport. I mean seriously, loved this fish...we have had fish and chips across a lot of the planet....but this fish has moved up to the #1 spot on our list....chips are chips, and we like potatoes, but did I mention....I really loved this fish... Fresh, crisp, light, and an incredible flavor.... Do I get worked up over an Icelandic cod filet.....we did this time.... We give this little mobile, fish/chips trailer a cold beer in the river guarantee for you, and a two-thumbs up review.. MahaloMore

We'd seen a video about these guys but came upon them serendipitously as we walked through the city. It's Reykjavik, so it's not cheap, but it was delicious. The fish was fresh and flavourful. Not greasy. And the yam fries were lovely. We were glad...to have stumbled across it.More

Fresh fish and efficient service. It was lovely to sit and eat our meals on the benches provided right next to the harbour.

This is a food truck located down in the Harbor. It was the best Fish and Chips we had and is very resonable in price. Would highly recommend

I was recommended this restaurant and the fish and chips were amazing. Very relaxed atmosphere right on the harbour. The staff were super friendly and happy to have a chat about our travels in Iceland.

This was our 4th lot of fish and chips that we purchased in Iceland and were by far the best. A very filling meal and well worth it.

My husband and I have eaten at three fish and chips places now and this one takes the cake. Don’t be fooled by the one piece of fish, it’s huge! You get a great amount of fries as well. It seems like the fish is...fresh and I don’t know what’s in that batter but it’s to die for! If you have the chance, you should definitely eat here!More

The fish tasted fresh and the fries were good, although they were a little less crisp than I would have liked. The mushy peas were good, a bit too peppery for me though. I liked the tartar sauce, and my husband liked the remoulade sauce,...which he liked. Glad we stopped by here.More

We stopped here for a quick bite after our whale tour and were not disappointed!! Flakiest fish (fresh) that we’ve had in a long time. Can barely eat with a fork because it’s so flaky. If in the area (Reykjavik old Harbor), give them a...try. You won’t be disappointed!!!More
