We enjoyed the chicken wings during happy hour. They were BBQ sauce with some zest. They were bone-in and had a decent amount of meat, and they were not overly messy. The restaurant was always busy, and it seemed like a lot of local non-guest...More

We ate here a few times. The little bar snacks were pretty small portions, but really yummy. The beef burger was absolutely delicious. Our tour guide said it was the best in Reykjavik and that's certainly easy to believe.

Kex is a cool and unpretentious joint serving the best burgers in Reykjavik. Fabulous meat, people. And the draught Boli is just perfect aside. Warning: If you don't like hipsters and backpackers, go find another place.
