“Broad menu, good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2011

Four of us ate at Kringlukráin http://www.kringlukrain.is/english/ on the evening of Saturday 30 April 2011.

Kringlukráin has evolved from a pub when it opened over 20 years ago, and could best be described as a family restaurant, offering a wide ranging menu, from meat and fish, to pastas, salads and pizzas. It‘s located in Kringlan Mall, some distance from downtown Reykjavík. We‘ve eaten there from time to time, most often before a show at the adjacent Reykjavík Theatre, or – as with last night – after a live HD transmission from the New York Metropolitan Opera in Kringlubíó cinema, just next door.

So, this review should be read bearing in mind that in most cases we‘re after a light, one course meal. Last night two of us had burgers and fries, and the other two had pizzas, accompanied by a beer, or in one case, a glass of wine.

Kringlukráin is quite popular, so reservations are recommended. The service is generally good. The food could not be described as gourmet, but it is perfectly acceptable, although sometimes the taste can be somewhat bland.

Prices are reasonable; watch out for special offers – there is often a pre-theatre menu, and last night there was 20% off beers and wines for opera ticket holders.

We paid kr. 10.130 (about USD 90) including taxes; gratuities are not expected in Iceland.
