The food in Iceland is great and at Strondin it's even better. Vik is an awesome town and Strondin is the best restaurant in town. It's around the corner from the gas station but don't let that fool you. We were greeted very warmly and our hostess took care of us. The food was great especially the home-made bread baked fresh! The shrimp we had was just as tasty as the presentation was beautiful on their black sand glass plates. After our meal, the hostess recommended hiking trails and beaches that weren't in our guide books. The next day we had such a great time hiking and walking along the beautiful black sand beaches that she recommended. Vik surprises you in every way. We wish we had time to spend another night.

We arrived in Vik after a long day of driving, and the wet weather obscured any views that were to be had. All we wanted was a decent meal and a long sleep, but Strondin absolutely blew us away. The price was competitive in a fairly expensive country, but the service and food quality were unforgettable. Our waitress could tell us exactly what was in each dish and where these ingredients had come from, made recommendations and went out of her way to make sure we had the best experience possible. I loved just about every meal I had in Iceland, but my fish stew at Strondin was truly outstanding. I'd recommend this restaurant over just about anywhere else we ate.

I cannot possibly praise this place enough. They offered us excellent service, amazing food and a fantastic, friendly atmosphere. They even stayed open after their normal closing hours upon learning from our guesthouse that we had arrived in town late and without eating dinner. We ordered the soup of the day, pizza, hot chocolate and ice water, and received a wonderful dinner experience (we even got complementary chocolates after our meal). The waitress Marie really went the extra mile to tend to us as customers and we are forever grateful. All in all, we feel like we got -way- more than our money's worth.

Stopped in here late one night after driving all day. Our waitress was amazingly helpful, even helping us plan our trip the next day. The pasta was great with generous portions. Recommended for anyone even if you're just driving through Vik!

An excellent option especially for a small quaint town. Hostess was brilliant and made sure we were satisfied. Good menu with Icelandic food as well as pizzas and pastas. And the views of cliffs and beach area is great.
To find it, its at the back of the main petrol station at the east end of town.
