The Kaffi that’s a Restaurant
Memorable Kaffi Duus in old Keflavik
Kaffi Duus may have started life, as its name implies, as a simple café, but make no mistake about it, Kaffi Duus has evolved into a full blown restaurant that can seat up to 200 guests. The setting couldn’t be more picturesque - a lovely wooden building, in a picture post-card perfect location overlooking the deep blue waters of Faxaflói Bay.
The choices on the extensive menu include authentic Indian vegetable stews, hearty pasta dishes and a whole range of fresh fish, lobster and all manner of seafood dishes. But, in case you are not a sea-food lover, there is a tempting dish called ‘Grilled Trio of the House’ - lamb fillet, beef tenderloin and pork tenderloin, served with grilled vegetables and a baked potato. Yum!
I wanted the chéf to surprise me, so I let him choose. He regaled me with one of his specialties of the house, the Seafood Trio á la Duus, which has 3 types of fish, plus shrimp and lobster tails on a mound of fresh vegetables and salad, which arrived steaming hot, on a wooden plank. It was impressive and delicious. I must admit, since I was quite hungry after a long day of exploring Keflavik and the Reykjanes Penninsula, I had no trouble polishing the whole thing off.
Kaffi Duus, will undoubtedly fulfill your expectations for authentic Icelandic and International cuisine, in a charming seaside location, just 5 minutes from the airport.
