The food was nice but all of Iceland's prices are much higher than we expected. Catch of the day, worth trying, extremely well cooked, my husband described it as the best fish he had ever had.

Loads of atmosphere, but unfortunately the service we received was very slow, the food was good, good portions but very expensive. Worth going for the Viking feel, the place is also acceptably clean.

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.
