“Feels like you are on an expedition”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

This cafe/restaurant/backpackers hang-out is iin the center of Vik in south Iceland. A small building wich alo includes tourist information, is a bit hard to find. But the food is very good and you meet a lot of people traveling both with cars, walking or just Hitch-hiking along route 1.

“Great but busy!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This place is terrific. I had a lamb sandwich that was simple and delicious and my wife loved her smoked salmon. With a cold beer, this was a simple and perfect meal. But be aware, everyone knows about this place so we got the last table for 2 around 6:00. Others came and could not find a seat. The service, however, is very quick and efficient for a place of this kind. Despite the large number of people, we were served quickly.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We ate here after driving to see the black sands which frankly aren't worth it but if you are driving though to Holm we would recommend eating here, The food was excellent and the service too. very god value for the quality of food. The cakes are also very tasty.

“A great cafe for a casual meal in a good atmosphere.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We had driven all day from Egilsstatoir to Vik in a driving rain. We wanted a café with good food. This is it. http://www.halldorskaffi.is/ I had a lamb sandwich, excellent. The place was very busy and hard to get a seat but worth the wait. We came back the next night and they remembered us.

“Great service & great food”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had dinner quite late one evening and the restuarant was busy and we waited 5 minutes before we could get a table. The service was quick and the food came out fast too. The mains come with soup and the soup station is self service which is a nice touch with home baked bread which was yummy. This restaurant had a selection of food pizza, sandwiches, salads and icelandic fish and lamb... prices were ok considering it was Iceland and the restaurant was boiling hot so after a day of being outside it is nice and cozy. Great little place with friendly staff and great atmosphere.
