Great place for a pizza. The seafood pizza was really good with lots of garlic and a bit of a red pepper flakes. The desserts looked really good but I didn't try any.

Very nice restaurant. I ordered a pizza margarita and i have to admit it was one of the best i have ever had. It has the perfect amount of cheese and was so delicious! I paid around 14€ which is more than fair for iceland!...My friends orders a burger, which was also very nice. I would visit again 10/10 (Sorry for the weird photos)More

I ate here twice, and both times the food was very good. The service, 2 of the 3 servers were good. One of the three servers seemed to hate me and most everyone who dared come in. I have no idea what I did to...make this one server hate me so much - I didn't make any special requests or mods to the food - but wow, did they hate my guts. I tried to avoid them and never made eye contact with them. I halfway expected them to dump the food or drink on me, rather than bring it to the table (note, they wouldn't even put it on the table, they just shoved it in front of me without a word). I thought it was just me, but the second time there I observed, and they did this to most of the tables. It was a shame, because the other two servers were very nice and polite and the food was good.More

Always a pleasure to visit Systrakaffi We come here every year and the food is excellent, the prices are very reasonable and the staff nice. It can often get very busy but definitely worth the wait. We love the fish, the pizza and the dessert

Good local food. So surprised to find good local food so far from a big city. We definitely chose to order local fresh fish dishes and were not disappointed. The local char and veggies as well as the cod in risotto were both so unexpectedly...good that we chose to share each…and then our kids decided that the cod in sweet potato risotto was the best meal ordered so we had to share that as a family as well. The soup of the day (veggie) and the chocolate cake were also delicious. Would happily go back and order the same.More

Terrible service and very unpolite staff, at least the food is good but the service of the staff was not good, no smiles and sighed when we came in.

Staff were friendly and food arrived quickly. Soup was bland, starter was overpriced for a very simple dish. Location is cozy, has a bar as well.

We were lodging in the area so stopped here for dinner after a busy day on the road. The pizza and ribs were pretty good but the waitress was rude and acted as though we were bothering her by being there! There was a gentleman...server who seemed to give better service but we weren't at his table.More

Great place and we have gone here a couple times but when we went here tonight we were met with a very rude waitress who acted annoyed at us for wanting to order. Not exactly how you want to be treated at a restaurant..

Great vegan options, staff were nice, we came here because food at Hotel Laki was bad, very bad. Go here it’s great. Vegan burger was great, service was great and better than hotel Laki. Thank you

It was really terrible, we came in at 20:20 approximately, ordered mushroom soup which tasted only of water, my boufriend had pasta which had clearly never seen any salt or seasoning whatsoever. We got our food and then the waiter started putting up the chairs...around us as to kick us out? No one asked how the food was or checked on us at any point. Would not recommend for anyone.More

Stopped on our way back to Reykjavik not knowing what to expect. The outside wasn't anything special. There were very few people there. The service was excellent, the staff kind, informative, helpful and efficient. The food was superb! Food came out quickly but we didn't...feel rushed at all. Definitely recommend!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.
