I had read good reviews so we made a stop as driving through. Maybe the machine was not working. I expected creamy soft ice cream but it was very icy and poor flavour . Our kids did not even finish there's and threw it out

I had read about this place in Lonely Planet Iceland. It's located at the edge of town, past the commercial area, but worth the trip. There are SO many choices here, from dips to toppings to slushies to candy. We saw people getting all sorts...More
