We stopped here at lunchtime as the timing suited and there wasn't many options nearby. It really is geared towards local workers, not tourists. Food was average. The place could do with renovations. The owner was helpful though.

We stopped here for a meal on the evening of the 21st Feb. I'm sorry to say I was extremely ill after eating here. I had a piece of plain white fish, salad and boiled potatoes. It tasted fine at the time, but unfortunately I was sick most of the night and the next morning. I spent the rest of... More

needed a stop on our Iceland tour and this fitted the bill. No frills, but clean and tidy and gave a good breakfast. No complaints.

Kanslarinn offers offers pretty ok fast food. Their pizzas are good, that's what I always have when I'm there. I recommend the pizzas for sure.

Kind service and decent food. Nothing special though, which is a bit disappointing for the bill you pay in the end.

First off, we didn't eat horse, but it was on the menu. I don't personally have anything against it, but our friend did so we went for other options. We had decided not to eat at the hotel restaurant where we were staying, and the choices in "town" were limited. We decided to take a chance on this place. It... More

The restaurant decor is dated but the service and food were great! We had the chicken burger and fish & chips and I thought the chicken burger was really good and cooked well.

Stopped here instead of eating at the hotel. Food was reasonable. The fish was extremely tasty. Lasagna wasnt bad, nothing to write home about. Friendly staff and the service was quick.

I'll be honest. I came for a steak after eating some pretty sub-par Icelandic food for the week. Unfortunately, it was once again horse - which is okay, and it actually was okay. Unfortunately, I got the namesake burger and it was bad. Like Burger King bad. at around 2500 isk there's no way a burger should be like this.... More
