We came across this place while searching for something for breakfast as soon as our flight landed, apparently everything is closed at 8am. It was a breakfast buffet, similar to what you would find in a club lounge at a hotel. The food was high quality and there was a wide variety including meat plates, fresh fruit/veggies, pizza, toast garnished with egg and fish, beans, coffee, orange juice, and more. I only wish there were signs to describe what everything was. Additionally, the breakfast area was not in the normal restaurant, it was behind the hotel desk.

Meal for one during a work trip. Quiet restaurant, quickly seated (05/10/2017 @ 20:45)
Service was attentive and food was served promptly.

Presentation of main dish was absolutely amazing quality. Well presented, attention to detail, layers of flavour, piping hot.

Not usually a fine dinner but this restaurant really highlighted to me how a quality dish should be served with the next level of dining.

Price vs Quality was comparible to other restaurants in Iceland.
Meal cost was ISK8400 (£61.13) (2 x Beers, 1 x Starter, 1 x Main)

I had an evening meal here. Thought it was owned by the hotel but it is not. I had a local fish dish which was OK.

We spent our final night of a 10 day trip at the hotel and ate at Kef Restaurant. Had a very delightful meal. The restaurant is charming. The wait staff, while not experienced or sophisticated, were genuine and accommodating. While not an extensive menu it was varied. Something to make everyone happy including a vegetarian. Both our meals were delicious.

I would make reservations. The restaurant did fill up and guests were turned away.

We drove around the area looking for a place to eat and this was by far the best we saw. Highly recommend.

On our last evening and night in the fantastic Iceland, before going back home, we had a good dinner at the Kef restaurant.
I recommend to make a reservation, what we did, as all tables were occupied ( at 8.30pm).
Menu is not extensive, but has something to offer for all. Good taste, good portions with a serving staff in a good and relaxing mood. Relaxing also due to the with light filled restaurant.
