  Viking experience - Hafnarfjordur
by bpwillet

Ok, if you want the "Viking" experience while in Iceland, to get your fill of traditional dress and services, the Fjorukrain is your place. This restaurant is constructed as a traditional Viking long house and has all the staff dressed up in traditional tunics and medieval viking garb. There are even mock Viking "ceremonies". It is a lot of fun and worth the trip. There is also an attached hotel, small museum and gift shop.

Favorite Dish: The food was really great here. Served in wooden trays in traditional ways the menu offers many different choices. There is a Viking Feast which includes many Icelandic delicacies of fish and vegetables. It is an all encompassing meal with starters, mains, and dessert. Many restaurants in Iceland will offer a "Viking" type menu item but none has as much character as the Fjorukrain.
