Letter from Brenda Pryor


I lived in Iceland eighteen years, and came very often to your restaurant.
I scheduled tours with many of our Faculty and dropped in many times to have the fish soup.
I would probably still be in Iceland but had to return to the U.S. for treatment for leukemia.
I will always treasure the memories of the old part of the restaurant and the fish soup.
It had such charm.  My health is better now after two bone marrow transplants and
I hope to return to Iceland for a visit. It broke my heart to have to leave so suddenly.
One of the places I will return to is your restaurant.  I have never enjoyed a place as much as that.
You had a great staff and they always put up with me poking my head in the kitchen
or showing some people the old and new sides of your restaurant.

Here you can find new "vikings".

Dear Jóhannes, 

Thanks for the nice evening we had last Saturday. Everybody enjoyed the evening and Viking meal - Viking kidnapping, too.
I hope we can come again with a group.
Here you can find new "vikings".

From a patron of your restaurant


I'm writing to you for the silliest reason possible, sorry about that. The thing is, I attended your restaurant on Sunday evening, with the rest of our jolly conference celebrating the end of the conference. During the evening, I received a diploma of a honorary viking; I, however, left it at the table.

Now, I am NOT asking for it to be sent to me over the whole of Europe. I'm just feeling bad that I could've given you - especially that Vidar guy, who issued the diploma - the idea that I've left it because I didn't care (or because I was drunk, which I wasn't). The whole viking act was unabashedly silly, but also extremely fun, even for a saga scholar dude like me, who's supposed to grumble about trivialising medieval culture and stuff. In fact, I had a tremendously enjoyable evening, and your place rocks. Next time I manage to waylay a banker or a politician (them being the same in Russia) and scrap a small fortune charged by IcelandAir for the tickets, I'll do my best to drop by again. So thanks once more, and don't take my forgetfulness for ingratitude.

sincerely yours,
Alexey "Hurin" Eremenko


Great time with the Vikings

Thanks for the great time at the Viking Restaurant. We visited last week, while we were on vacation. We sat with some ladies from Denmark and England. The atmosphere, food and Vikings were lots of fun!  My daughter really enjoyed being "kidnapped". She has her "Viking" certificate in a frame. I'll recommend your facility to anyone who's going to be in your area, and I'll send a picture, when I get them developed!

Sæll Jói,

Fyrir hönd okkar skötukarla vil ég þakka góðan viðurgerning og frábæran mat.
Sömuleiðis fyrir mjöðin og að sýna okkur  “hellinn”.
Gaman að fá að vera í fjörunni aftur, en við byrjuðum hjá þér á hæðinni fyrir ofan, áður hafði þetta verið á Hotel Loftleiðum, meðan eg var þar.
Aftur okkar bestu þakkir og um leið óska eg þér og þínum gleðilegra jóla og farsæls komandi árs.

“Hamingjan gefi þér gleðileg jól
blessi og verndi þig miðsvetrarsól,
brosi þér himininn heiður og blár
og hlýlegt ,þér verði hið komandi ár”

Bestu kveðjur

Good morning from London


We are now back from a wonderful and memorable weekend in Iceland and   
we are all full of enthusiasm to sell Iceland to our Clients.

Thank you so much for a really fun Viking night, everyone enjoyed it
so much. it was a shame we had to leave a little early but we had anearly start the next morning as we had a very full schedule.

I am forwarding seperately a photo of us which we all found very
funny. The tall man was from the German group and the 2 from our group
have made themselves appear even smaller for the photo.
I know the helmet with horns is a myth but we bought them from a
local shop just for fun.

Thank you again
Regards Katy Savvides





I am vey happy - in your hotel - this is the best!
Thank you! The breakfast is excellent!

Auf Wiedersehen!
Hello from Germany, 

We had a very nice evening last week. Four persons and a group from Sweden. It was just funny and we´re laughing when we´re thinking of this day. Look at the photos and you can understand me.

All the best and good luck
