Welcome to Sæmundur í Sparifötunum,
the gastro pub at the heart of KEX.

Good food

Sæmundur í Sparifötunum is the gastro pub at the heart of KEX Hostel. It's not quite a fancy bistro but swankier than your ordinary pub grub, Sæmundur is that sweet spot in the middle, like the cream filling in the sandwich biscuit it takes it's name from and was baked in the old biscuit factory.

Sæmundur serves food based on the Icelandic heritage, and comes out as honest, straightforward and a bit rough on the edges. 

Our menu offerings vary from the perspective of a gastro pub with a complete focus on local ingredients in good relationship with producers and foragers, along with foraging a big part of raw materials ourselves.

DRINX - Local lager or snack?

Until 1989 beer was prohibited in Iceland (nobody really knows why) so we have some catching up to do. 

At the DRINX bar, part of Sæmundur í Sparifötunum, you can enjoy a frosty pint of a local lager, craft beer or ale as well as spirits, cocktails and specially selected wines.
