“Nice cafe”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We drove through Vik to get to Skaftafell, and we liked Halldorskaffi enough that we stopped here again when we were driving in the other direction. My husband enjoyed their soup and cakes on both visits. I liked the flavorful lamb sandwich and the straightforward Arctic charr entree.

“Good Food, Great Place”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Vik is a small place so there isn't much choice, that being said, I would go back to the Halldorskaffi if there were 20 more options.

“Great pizza and salads”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

The food is homemade and tasty, the pizza was delicious. Feta salad and tuna salad excellent. Tried the apple with caramel topping for dessert was good.

“Good value, good place for some north american comfort food”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Had pizza, beer and burger! I don't know why, but we did. Very relaxed cafe/bar-like atmosphere restaurant. Food was good with reasonable prices - the cheapest we paid for a restaurant meal in Iceland.

When you order soup, it will not arrive on your table - you have to help yourself to it by the counter, right beside the fresh bread.

Overall, we were very satisfied with the food, atmosphere and the prices.
