I payed about $46 for a cheeseburger with fries, small portion of fries and two sodas. The sodas were from a machine and were flat. The pricing is ridiculous even for Iceland. The place is frequented by tourists which is probably why everything was so...overpriced. The food was nothing special so I do not recommend this place. Find another place in Vík to eat.More

While being on tour we stopped here for dinner. We both got an ice cave burger. I am a sucker for a good burger and this was absolutely delicious. Home made and fresh.

We stopped here for lunch while on a day tour and the meal we had was good. Lamb chops, grilled vegetables and fries. All was cooked well and the service was fast and friendly.

Awful processed food. We had fish and chips and a burger. They were the worst kind of processed food, dry, tasteless and expensive.

We stopped for Fish and chips. Feels like an Ikea style restaurant cafeteria. The portion was large and tasty. Cannot say anything negative about what we had. Simple and priced as it should be.

Our tour group stopped in Vik at this eatery located in a mall for lunch. It was a cafeteria-style service where you get a tray and follow the line to choose and order your food. I ordered the marinated lamb from the overhead menu. I...paid for it and got a number. I found a table and waited about 10 minutes to be called to go and pick up my meal. The lamb was slightly overcooked but it was still tasty and the portion size was quite large. Service was friendly and efficient. I was satisfied with my meal experience.More

In the shopping complex in Vik we had a stop over on our 2 day South Coast tour. The Ice Cave Bistro was where we grabbed a bite to eat. The food was easy to get and the prices were reasonable. It was a bit...like a cafeteria, plenty of seating. We both had traditional Lamb Soup that was filling and quite yummy. For a take-away with seating it was quite good.More

We had vegetarian jain burger here and it was all we could ask for. They replaced the fries with a salad of our choice, the patty was made of quinoa and kale and they customised the burger according to our requirements too.

We were VERY happy to find free restrooms here - that's a weird way to start a food review but really, Iceland does not make it easy to take care of bodily needs! There need to be rest stops along ALL MAJOR roads with FREE...restrooms for travelers willing to spend their money to get to Iceland. Rant over. The Ice House has great souvenirs at decent prices, FREE restrooms and good food in the Bistro. We had fish and chips ($18) and lamb stew ($25). We never thought we'd pay $25 for a bowl of soup but it was big and hearty and delicious. The fish and chips were good too. The Bistro was a nice place to sit, eat and rest after seeing waterfalls, puffins and black sand beaches.More
