Everything that previous posters have said is true. Easily the best food I’ve ever eaten - not just in Iceland. Staff was knowledgeable and attentive. They recommend 4 small plates to share with two people. We had the scallops, beets, lamb, and char. To die for.

This place is… amazing. Michelin Bib Gourmand award winning restaurant in a bus station food court?? This was among the best meals I’ve had in Iceland, and I’ve eaten a lot of places. Great selection of natural wines, elevated Icelandic small plates, kind of an oddly elevated atmosphere for a bus station, and relatively affordable.

Everything on the menu when I went was gluten free except for the bread, which was toasted on a dedicated griddle, which i could watch because the kitchen is open. The chef changed gloves between prepping every meal. Perfection.

Skal is located in a food hall with a busy, yet relaxed atmosphere. The staff was very knowledgeable about which dishes were gluten free and there were a lot of gluten free options. The food was just incredibly delicious!

The staff was extremely knowledgeable about which items on their menu contained gluten and how to avoid cross-contamination. The menu changes, but during the week I was there the only item that contained gluten was fried, which made it much easier to avoid CC. The food was also some of the best tasting we had in Iceland.

Skal! was recommended to us by our tour guide. It is in Hlemmur food hall in the bus terminus. There are lots of gluten free options on the menu. Talk to the staff about what is available, as the menu changes regularly. We opted for the Baked Artic Char and Beef Skirt Steak. The presentation and the flavours were absolutely divine. We really enjoyed our food and the atmosphere - this is beautiful food served in a very relaxed and casual environment. Would thoroughly recommend.
