Fine Dining in Old Reykjanesbaer
Delightful taste in Kaffi Duus
Kaffi Duus may have started life as the 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 the 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 of course a whole range of incredible 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 chef 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 vegetable and salad, which arrived steaming hot, on a wooden plank. It was impressive and delicious, I must admit, and since I was quite hungry after a long day of exploring Keflavík and the Reykjanes Penninsula, I had no trouble polishing the whole thing off.
Kaffi Duus, will undoubtedly fulfill your expectations for authentic Icelandic cuisine and more, in a charming seaside location, just 5 minutes from the airport.
