Description: Cafe Loki offer Icelandic meat soup, Icelandic sample plates, homemade bread and cakes. Icelandic traditional homemade dishes are our specialty. You can taste fermented shark and dried fish but Icelandic meat soup and our Icelandic plates are most popular among the Rye Ice cream and Skyr cake. Beautiful view over Reykjavik, Hallgrimskirkja church and to mountain Blafjoll. Icelandic food.

I loved this spot. After arriving in Iceland earl in the morning and being a bit jet lagged, I wanted some authentic Icelandic food. Cafe Loki had it all. It is a small place with a small menu of smoked fish and stews. The herring and egg was my favorite but really all of the dishes we tried we great. The most surprising dish was the rye bread ice cream which was christmas in a bowl.

Food is good, prices are reasonable and atmosphere is warm and friendly. We had the meat soup and fish mash, both were awesome! :)

Before coming to Iceland I was warned about the cost of meals. The cost in Cafe Loki worked out around £15 a head for a main meal and pudding. From a London perspective this is pretty good going. On top of this I really liked the food. All of the main dishes I had were great, and I really liked the rye bread ice cream for afters. The cafe is warm and clean, and we found the staff to be friendly and welcoming.

We visited Cafe Loki 3 times for dinner during our stay in Reykjavik and will definitely visit again next time we go there. The Cafe combines great Icelandic food and atmosphere (pleasant Icelandic music in the background, landscapes from local painters on the walls...). The stuff is friendly and helpful. We tried the meat soup offer in both combinations - with flatbread and rye bread, both of which were delicious, with very pleasant sweet taste which goes well with fish as well as cured lamb. The Icelandic platters are a great introduction to Icelandic food (try the fermented shark pieces - a bit of an acquired taste but quite interesting). We recommend the rye bread ice cream and the Icelandic herbal tea!

Stayed at Leifur Eriksson hotel just across the street and read reviews of this place. We went for a late breakfast and I had the pickled herrings with rye bread, eggs and rye bread icecream - all very delicious! Try it! Good honest food
