Harbour Dining in Old Keflavik
Authentic Icelandic and international cuisine at Kaffi Duus
It’s the classic seafood restaurant setting overlooking Keflavik’s small harbour. From our window seat, we are treated to a view of the deep blue waters of Faxaflói Bay and the snow capped mountains of Snæfellness Peninsula on the horizon. A pair of kittiwakes glide overhead, completing the picture-perfect setting. From its simple beginnings as small café, Kaffi Duus has evolved into a sizable restaurant with an extensive menu, suitable for an intimate tete-á-tete or a special occasion dinner for large groups.
The chef regaled me with one of the specialties of the house, the Seafood Trio á la Duus, comprising 3 types of fish, plus shrimp and lobster tails on a mound of fresh vegetables. Arriving steaming hot, served on a wooden platter, it was impressive and delicious.
Also on the menu: authentic Indian vegetable stews, pasta dishes and a range of fresh fish, lobster and all manner of seafood dishes. If you are not a seafood lover, the ‘Grilled Trio of the House’ - lamb fillet, beef and pork tenderloin, served with grilled vegetables and baked potato allows you to sample some of the best cuts of succulent Icelandic meat.
Kaffi Duus will fulfill your expectations for authentic Icelandic and international cuisine in a charming location, just 5 minutes from the airport.
