Those were the words our guide used to describe Icelandic Fish and Chips …if we had only listened.
Our dining experience was far from being even average. The prices are off the charts – al a carte on speed. What kind of Fish and Chips joint charges extra for Ketchup and Tartar Sauce? Seriously, that’s an $8 gotcha on 2 plates.
The food, pedestrian, boring and greasy. I'm not sure there was any onion in the onion rings – all I could taste was grease. My fries (oven roasted wedges) were also sitting in a pool of oil.
As for service there really is none. You order at the counter and they drop and disappear. It was fun watching the guy at the next table try to get his fish and salad entrée (that came with no salad) corrected. He had to explain their “house speciality” to them.
I’m sure there are some really good fish and chips spots in Reykjavik – this isn't one of them.
