More interesting fare than regular tourist oriented spots in Vik. Decent beer selection. Ambience is OK with good window views.

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

This is like a cafeteria! The food was very good and large portions! Would recommend it! I got the fish and it came with rice and salad. Excellent.

Had expected better food based on feedback, but new, nice and clean place. The other food might have been better but the fish & chips can be found better in many of the street food cars for around icelandMore

We had burgers and they were overcooked and almost nothing on them. Some at the table had chicken curry and the lamb meat soup- both had a very small amount of meat. We were not happy with our meal and how much we spent on...More
