Traditional food (and regal for the less adventurous), Viking serenades and story telling, dancing, laughter, sitting in the kings chair (when he stepped away for a moment) and having a Viking good time. Also easy to get to by local bus!

OK restaurant. As all of Iceland, a bit expensive. Had the fishe of the day, well done. My son had the duck which wasn't as greasey as normal; done well.

For anyone that has been to the Viking Village Restaurant, please help me.. The reviews I am seeing, are they for the buffet?, the Viking Feast? I can't figure out which meal people are so high on. If we can make it to the Village I want to be sure I partake in the right menu... thanks for all the help.

We went in the off-season, there are hamburger, soup and fish dinners on the menu, no buffet. From the pictures in the hotel, it looks like the Viking feast goes on during a weekend of summer.

Hæ, I think a meal and a beer is between 3-6.000 ísl. kr., but I don´t know if there is a show other days than weekends.
