This is not a place to go if you want a lot of choices for lunch. The courses are limited, but ample and very good. Check the menu before you go. Fish soup was very tasty, but it could have used some more fish. This...More

The huge photo of a little boy with a big fish invites you to the very friendly, traditional- and- young restaurant to have delicious fish soup, and fish of tha day meals.

Good fish and beer, but there are thousand of better restaurants around with a similar price. Quantity low, price high.

After a long morning of sightseeing we needed some comfort food, and Salka Valka delivered. The vegetarian soup hit the spot in a big way. The location is extremely convenient, the space is cool and the service was on top of everything.

As often we used tripadvisor for finding a restaurant. So we came here. They menu is short but fine. Especially the plokkfiskur is very recommendable. The staff is friendly and the meals came very quick.

Overtired and hangry a quick stop at this restaurant cured all that ailed us. The non-dairy soup base was also a welcome change to more traditional offerings. Would go again. Now if only we had the recipe...

We like to think of Salka Valka as an extension of our own home-kitchen and living room. Experience a uniquely charming, soulful and welcoming atmosphere over hot & cold food, sandwiches & snacks, coffee drinks, organic teas & organic juices, wine & beer. Vegan options available daily. All food is fresh and prepared on the day. Might we add we are quite a colourful bunch of characters too, weird and wonderful! FREE Wifi available.
