Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ate dinner here. Decent burger and fries. Their “cocktail” sauce wasn’t what I was expecting - it was a mayonnaise base sauce. Good location to our Airbnb a block away. Price was decent I suppose.

If you choose the offer, you could have an hamburger, chips and a refreshment at good price. Possibly the cheaper bar in the zone.

I was told by a local to stop here for the food because it's remarkably cheaper than the rest of Reykjavik. I ended up spending $40 for a burger and beer, so either I went to the wrong Vitabar or I missed the affordable hour....In any case, the beer was good, and the burger was very large.More

Very tasty burgers in a modest small bar. Competitive price for the food. Great Icelandic tap beer, not overpriced either. Great location, pleasing experience.

I question some of the review that say "Best Hamburger in Iceland" I'd like to hear who you compared it with? My good judgement for a hamburger is to cut off a piece of the beef, away from all the fixin's they add, and see...how good the burger tastes now. Unfortunately, mine was dry. Out of the 4 burger places I went to , this one came up #3. I realize they dont ask how would you like that cooked and perhaps I could have asked for it medium rare, mine came out well done. So maybe that is a one off, but I only had one chance. I opted for the special Blue cheese Burger. I'm not a big fan of blue cheese but it was their special and it was a good choice. The value for the food and drinks were excellent Yes it is a cozy, laid back bar. You walk in, order at the counter, and take a seat where you want. Don't forget to get up and get some napkins. The fries were good, the beer was cold, the hamburger was decent. Come here for the place but don't expect "The best hamburger in Iceland"More

Vitabar is definitely a locals burger joint, but no matter where you come from anyone can feel right at home grabbing a bite to eat here, The prices are very reasonable and the food is really good! Hanna who took our orders and delivered them...to Dora the line chef made our eating experience quick and efficient. The food came out quickly and tasted great, adding a beer or two to our meals made for a perfect dinning experience. Fast ( good ) food at a reasonable cost what more could you want?More

Went here for a quick and late night bite on our first night in Reykjavík. I got the burger and chip deal which came with a cocktail sauce on the side. You could opt for larger burgers but this one was plenty for me and...with a good sized portion of chips too. Very tasty and on the cheaper side for Iceland. Would highly recommend! It was also a nice small pub with a good atmosphere.More
