Not at all like the yummy fish and chips you get at home. It’s more like gougons with chips in a basket. Too much batter not enough fish. It cost £20 per person.

We walked up here to find the van had disappeared into thin air. Could find no information online to confirm this is the case. A waste of time. I’m sure the fish and chips are lovely though.

Last summer was the second one I thing they had the Vagninn open during summer. They always have a fresh fish and it is nice on summer evenings to sit down there and east outside there by the Old Harbour in Reykjavík

A bit away from the busy center of Reykjavik, the food is decent and simple (fries are pre-fried). Should visit if you only want to try the fish & chips dish of Iceland.

This was the best fish and chips we had in Iceland. It was a nice thick piece of fish with a yummy coating. The tartar sauce, fries, and peas were fantastic. The staff was friendly. All around wonderful experience.
