Fermented shark and dried fish!
Review of Cafe Loki, Reijavik by catsholiday

Advantages: A chance to try local specialities
Disadvantages: None unless you don't like trying the local cuisine

Cafe Loki My husband and I really enjoy trying different foods and when we travel we always try to eat or at least taste some of the local food. This does mean we have eaten some very strange things from deep fried locust in Beijing through to satay fro ... Read review

Review of Solheimajokull Glacier by cr01

Advantages: A chance to see something you can't do in the UK
Disadvantages: All that gear....

I just had to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory didn’t I? My first steps had been hesitant but I had gained confidence throughout the two hour walk. It was perhaps during our final 300 yards when I suddenly tripped over my bulky footwear and fell mos ... Read review

Balkan Eats In Reykjavik
Review of Balkanika Restaurant, Reykjavik by fizzytom

Advantages: Great value for Reykjavik; good home-style Balkan grub
Disadvantages: Limited drinks

For such a small city Reykjavik has a lot of places to eat and among them a fairly wide choice of cuisines; one that we had not expected to find was a restaurant serving typical dishes from the Balkans and though this actually meant mainly Bulgaria and no ... Read review

Hallgrimskirkja - For the Best Views in Reykjavik
Review of Hallgrimur's Church (Hallgrimskirkja), Reykjavik by fizzytom

Advantages: Impressive design; accessible; inexpensive for tower; the views
Disadvantages: Interior not much to write home about

Though there are some striking and handsome architectural sights in Reykjavik, when one thinks of attractions in Iceland, it is not usually those in the built environment that spring to mind. However, there is one building that stands out above all others ... Read review

Review of Kryddlegin Hjortu, Reykjavik by fizzytom

Advantages: Organic food; great for vegetarians; good value for Reykjavik; fab view
Disadvantages: May not be a free table

Dining out in Iceland can be an expensive business but there are ways of softening the blow. Most restaurants offer at least one set meal special each day but buffet restaurants are also an economical option if you want to spend less on meals. Kryddelgi ... Read review

Sounds wonderful, although I'd pass the crab, lobster and mussel (and similar) by... Your comment about the "pan fried fish that spoke more for itself" reminded me of the "meet the dish of the day" scene from the Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy: http://youtu.be/niOm01dEzzI by pgn0
