We had read reviews on this restaurant and sought it out when we arrived in Reykjavik. We were not disappointed. The batter was lovely and crispy and the fish was fresh. It was a large portion for french fries and fish with a nice salad...More

One of Reykjavik’s oldest restaurants and still serving the best fish & chips. Excellent service and great value for money. A must place to visit for a meal out.

The Kaffivagninn has a humble outside, but serves the freshest fish you can imagine. The staff is very friendly, service is more than quick, we got our dishes about 10 minutes after ordering. The focus is on fish, but the potatoes and fries are precisely...More

My wife and I recently ate here based upon some recent reviews for fish and chips. Maybe it was an off night. The fish and chips were good, but not great. They were, however, pretty expensive.
