It is a beautifully located restaurant with a beautiful view of the church. Among the Icelandic meals my favorite is the lamb soup, I ate it here too. Nothing special, average taste. It's worth a visit because of the view.

We had heard about Cafe Loki and how it was the most "authentic" Icelandic cuisine, and we had to check it out. I ordered the lamb soup with lamb pate on rye bread. We also split an appetizer of the fermented shark, which was absolutely...More

Reykjavik is not the best city for parking. Most of it is street parking, and you'll need to buy a permit at the kiosk. If you're not impaired, walking is usually faster and less frustrating.

Hello, Café Loki is around 50 minutes from the airport Keflavík. We are in front of the big church, Hallgrímskirkja

Icelandic traditional food Cafe Loki offer Icelandic meat soup, Icelandic sample plates, homemade bread and cakes. Icelandic traditional homemade dishes are our specialty. You can taste fermented shark and dried fish but Icelandic meat soup and our Icelandic plates are most popular among the Rye Ice cream and Skyr cake. Beautiful view over Reykjavik, Hallgrimskirkja church and to mountain Blafjoll. Icelandic food.
