It's really nice. The place is neat and the cute. We went to Vic for walking glacier tour in Sólheimajökull and it's awesome. The experience in Sólheimajökull is just unbelievable.

The bar food was trash. BBQ chicken was cold. Noodles were far from fried. Rice was undercooked. Vegetarian Salad was “bland” to say the least...also watery. Utter disappointment. 0/10 WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. GO NEXT DOOR AND GET A HOT DOG THOSE ARE 10/10
