Nice little place. Everyone was ordering pizza, including the locals, so we ordered one and it was really good. We also got the fish and chips and it was excellent the fries (chips) were good as well. Service was good and the staff friendly!

Anyone who is near the area and looking for quality food at a great price should come here. We got the soup of the day which was potato soup and it was great. The size of it was quite large and it tasted fantastic. All...three of us got the spicy burger and were very pleased by the taste and size of it. Again the food is well priced for the quality you receive. Would definitely come back again!More

My husband and I ate here while visiting Iceland in November of 2019. The pizza was amazing. I am still thinking of the fresh bread and pesto - I wish I could order some online! Cannot wait to come back once it is safe to...travel :)More

I did eat there multiple times, both pizza and veggie burger were fine. It can be a very busy place, they also did take away. Food is good, didn’t have to wait long, very nice place to go back to.

Service was excellent, the food (had the pizza Exorcist) was very good. Beer and coffee also hit the spot.

Although there are a couple of other eateries around, this the only real game in town and they know it. As a result, the customer experience suffers. The service is cold and indifferent. The food is alright but does not offer value for money. It...wasn't always like this. The Systrakaffi of old was wonderful.More

After one week on the road we ate at Systrakaffi and it is definitely the best place we have eaten at on this trip. The food was so good and everybody got enough to eat. The service was even better and they were careful keeping...2 meters apart from the guest and there were enough space for every costumer to keep 2 meters from other people. The best part was paying because how cheep it was. If I could give this place more stars I would.More

Very disappointed. The arctic trout was dry, the pizza and the vegan burger appeared to be prepared from frozen. There is obviously not much ambition in the kitchen.

We waited about 15 min to get a table, as the government decided to put some rules in place avain due to COVID-19. The food was ok, nothing special really. We shared the camembert and had the char with potatoes (quite expensive) and fried fish...with fries after. Expectations were higher as it was the nr. 1 on the list around here, but the people were nice and we had a fine meal.More

I visited there with my husband and two daughters (4 and 5 year old). The service was great, relaxing atmosphere,great variety of food and the food was excellent! Even my 5 year old that usually doesn't eat much ate a whole lot, that a lone...is a great compliment! The youngsters even asked to be back there as soon as possible! And we will be back. I will definitely recommend this place for everyone.More

I can only spot a vegetable option in the pizza menu. Don't recall a certified vegan option. You have to give Iceland time to catch up with the vegan-revolution, especially restaurants outside Reykjavik. :)

We dined there without reservation as we were there by 6pm. I saw someone waiting for tables at peak hour but seemed no need to wait long.
