We stopped here for a snack before checking into the Hotel Skogar next door. Don’t be deceived by its appearance, some sort of magic takes place inside this van which produces the best fish and chips I’ve ever had. If passing by, definitely stop here!

I am from New England but this is definite the best fish and chips I have had. Perfect bite to eat during a day of exploring. You must stop and try this if you are in the area

Delicious fresh crunch cooked to perfection fish and chips out of a cute red food truck at the base of the Skogafoss waterfall. The chef was charming and clearly took pride in his work. Totally recommend it!

An unassuming roadside food stall disguised as a strawberry. Park your car, approach through the pouring rain. Be greeted by the prototypic neo-viking icelander with wild beard, standing in the twilight of oily haze amidst his deep fryers. Smell of freshly deepfried fish wafting through...More

Stopped here after a visit to Skógafoss, delicious cod and chips with mouth watering Icelandic tartare sauce, with friendly service. Well worth a visit.

We had good fish and chips here when we stopped for a late lunch after visiting Skógafoss. Service was friendly and the food was tasty with different sauces to choose from. There are limited seating outdoor options, so you may have to get your food...More
