Prikið used to be a similar place to Café Mokka, in Skólavörðustígur, where elderly stoics drank their coffee in the morning, beer in the evening, leaving the outside world to its own … until five years ago or so, when young sputnik businessmen bought the place, changed nothing but prolonged the opening hours and inserted a DJ. The place was an instant hit among those people in their early twenties who want to keep the best of the alleged two universes: mainstream and alternative. So you will find a lot of people here who know how to make a decent income from their art and/or education.
And now they have a kitchen. Originally it was a side-step, as the place offered their regulars some snacks and French fries, but has now grown into a full-fledged bistro menu à la Hard Rock Café. In short, the menu is very satisfying and coherent with the place itself. It does not involve a lot of risk but is decently served, both in quantity and quality – the steak is among the best you will find for the modest price, and the French fries melt in your mouth.
