Anonymous asked: When traveling about Iceland, how much can one expect to pay for food and drink?
You can expect to pay a lot less than you would a few years ago. The price of food and drink in Iceland is comparable to the average in the EU. According to one source it was 4% over the EU average in 2010, but 61% in 2006.
Eating out is a bit expensive though. In Reykjavík you’ll find plenty of really good restaurants, but expect to pay a high price. Out and about in Iceland it hard to find really good restaurants and very few lie in the high price range.
A typical price for a hamburger in a diner would be between 1100-1900 ISK. A large beer would be between 350-900 ISK (typically 500). Here’s the menu for one of my favorites.
You can get a half a sheephead (in picture) and a coke for 1650 at the bus station.
There have been plenty of questions about Icelandic food before.
