I'm certain many foodies out there will scoff at the idea of eating here but why skip on a decent meal because of location?! I've noticed several comments on how "average" the food is but what exactly are they looking for when choosing to eat here?! We stopped here for dinner on a cold blustery night and all we wanted...

Like everywhere in Iceland the prices are unbelievable for the food that you get. The good things about this place: food comes quickly, the portions are good sized, there is plenty of seating, the attached gas station and convenient store are . . . convenient. While staying in Vik we went once for a meal and once for dessert only.

Staff was nice and service was quick even though there was a long queue when we arrived. Food was basic but filling and good as such, with reasonable prices. Restaurant area was clean even though it's part of a gas station.

Had a brief stop here as part of the South Shore tour. Food was average, but service was quick and friendly enough. As with all of the food in Iceland prepare to pay over the odds.

We went there by mistake. The food was very average and it was like an Icelandic version of Burger King or McDonald's. Due to probably the cheap prices, it was very busy at the dinner time and service was fast. There is an attached store with it which can help you stock up your supplies. The dishes were pre ready...

As you are almost certain to arrive with a coach and other coaches, there is a large queue for the restaurant and lavatories. There is also a snack/cafe area, but this is cramped and awkward to navigate with tourists pushing past to the gift shop area. The coffee I eventually bought was ok. People who had the food seemed satisfied,... More

We ended up here because the dinner we had a local upscale restaurant wasn't nearly enough food for us. So we came here for second dinner. Was this the fanciest restaurant with the best food I had in all of Iceland? No. Was it a great place to stop when I was hungry and just needed some hot food and... More

A tourist stop/bus stop restaurant, it is very busy with the ordering line out the door, but don't worry, lots of seating inside. The food is moderate priced, with soups, sandwiches, burgers, and entrees. Hot dogs are okay, the lamb stew was large and very tasty. Other food looked good. Right on the road of the black sand beaches.

Well it seems all the tours stop here so the line to get a hot meal was out the door. When we finally got inside we saw you could just buy a hot dog and chips/soda from the register. The line we were in was basically a cafeteria style line, one where the food was already cooked and you asked... More

Short stop for lunch. Counter service. I had the fish stew which tasted pretty good but was more like a fish paste than a stew. Not bad for a quick lunch stop. View of the coast and the church on the hill were very nice.
