Cafeteria style. We were a little unsure. Fresh artic char was amazing. The portion so large, it fed two of us. Went back the next day for the lamb, it was sold out and had the char again!

Honestly, just find anywhere else in this town. Prices weren’t bad for Iceland but the food was incredibly sub-par, in my opinion. It was dry, bland cafeteria food. As someone coming from the UK, I also wasn’t expecting their toasted sandwiches to use burger cheese...slices - We literally call that plastic cheese, it’s not good. I wish I would’ve spent my money elsewhere, so I’d suggest you do. All of that said, the staff were very friendly and I heard them happily exchanging food that people were complaining had been given cold.More

This cafe is just feet from the ocean and so we ordered fish and chips. The chips were fine, but the fish was a large flaked and formed "fish Stick." Not worth the money. Did not expect frozen food at a beach town.

Food from this place is tasteless, overpriced and the same "cakes" I saw many times in the cheapest bars in the US. It not Icelandic food. Literally my burger was the smallest I've ever seen. You better go to the restaurant in a gas station...that is next to this place than there! DO NOT RECOMMENDMore

This was our first visit at Ice Cave Bistro in Vík i Mýrdal during the trip along the coast and were quite impressed both by the food and service. We got the soup, arctic charr with side salad plus some rice and a burger with...fries. Everything was fresh and delicious! Staff made us feel very welcome and gave us tips on where to go next. Coffee was great, too! Highly recommend!More

Came with my daughter, we were on a trip, and came for lunce. We ordered a cheeseburger, and we got a very bad looking burger, with one salad, sauce and cheese, and a few chips on plate. We did not got a good service, it...was a very expensive meal.More

Overpriced and not good food. As a family of four our bill was just under 12 thousand ISK and I've got to say that for that amount I demand some standard. We're not stopping by again. Raise your game or lower the price. A kids...menu would be very useful.More
