We went on TA recommendation. As reviewed before, always full of Reykjavik Police, but not in a bad way :) Lamb was excellent, the lady serving us saw that the tray was nearly empty & instead of giving us what was left, brought out a fresh tray of beautifully cooked lamb. Cafeteria style,with help yourself salad/soup/bread.

They have limited hours but worth going there. We originally saw a lot of police cars around it and wondered ?? but found out it was because the police eat there. We had dinner there which could be a buffet or off the menu. I'd recommend the buffet. Large servings and all you can eat. Good Icelandic food.

All you can eat (same main) and it was fresh and delicious! The price was very affordable. Salad and soup are also included. My friends and I had the lamb (our favourite), fish, and beef. Would highly recommend this place

Múlakaffi is the place to go if you miss your icelandic grandma’s cooking. Or want to eat like back when you were working on a fishing trawler. You get what Icelander’s have been eating at home since the 1950’s. It’s caffeteria style, not a lot of choice but all is good, if you like your meals without any fancy -... More

Stopped by one evening because it was a quick walk from the hotel and seemed less traveled by other tourists. The prices for dinner are far cheaper than any of the restaurants in the shopping district; around 2.000 ISK gets you a full plate of one of three meals, and unlimited soup, coffee, and salad. Highly recommend if you want... More

Found this place on TA as near to the Hilton Nordica. Best value meal of whole trip. Soup, salad, main course, desert and drinks for £75. Food was delicious. It is buffet /self service and you do share the experience with half of the Reykjavik police force but that just added to the fun. There are 4 main course choices... More
