850 ISK for most coffees or a hot chocolate. 800 ISK to walk or drive around the property - much better value than the hot drink. The Viking village is in a poor state and could do with some major renovations. The best part is...More

There were spectacular views behind the Viking set and by the beach but it's not worth the price. The waffle was pretty good but the coffee was at best, mediocre. Service wasn't great either. It was a cute place but not sure it was worth...More

If you have time, it is worth seeing, but not if you are pressed for time. The Café really doesn't offer much at all, so don't head here looking for food of any substance or quality. The hook is really the chance to walk out...More

I agree with previous reviews. The cafe and Viking Village are probably not worth the time and $ to get there, have a coffee and roam the grounds. The woman at the cafe where you need to pay for entrance, was cold and unwelcoming. The...More

After reading all about the controversy surrounding this place, I figured the views must be to-die-for so we decided to make it a must-see on our trip this year. One word: disappointing. We thought that, similar to some private access or maintained areas in the...More
