I just came across this very nice video made by one of our nice visitors.

Please enjoy watching.

Remember, Nailed It is just across the road from The Diamond beach, At Jökulsárlón to be exact. Kind of miss that in the video.

My best to you,


Dear friends.

Nailed It has been closed from March 19 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will remain closed until later this year.

Hopefully I will see you this summer?

Stay at home, stay safe and take care of yourself and your loved ones.


Hello good people.

As of today, because of the situation in the world, Nailed It will be closed until further notice.

As elsewhere, we do not know when the world will open again for public travel so sitting back and wait for what there is to come is the only action possible in that regard.

Góðan daginn gott fólk.

Good morning you all.

It was fun while it lasted.

We were able to open for one day in between storms. Unfortunately, Nailed It will be closed today because of high wind forecasted today.

It is so good. Highly recommendable and the perfect food to relax after visiting the Jökulsárlón or going on a glacier walk. My girlfriend and i loved it so much that we even went back the next day just to eat there one more time! Although it is a bit expensive, but i mean everything in Iceland is. 5/5 stars would definitely go again.

Iceland is not particularly famous for food nor has fish and chip as their national dish like UK, but frankly this is one of the best fish and chip I have. Better than many famous shop in UK or even Australia that I have tried. I've been there for almost a year already but still miss it.

The batter is amazingly crispy and the fish quality is so yummy. This is right up there with the best fish tacos I had in Baja. Sit outside on picnic tables and get a snack before glacier viewing.

Nailed It Fish and Chips was started in the beginning of June 2018 by me, Karl Johann Gudmundsson.

I am an Icelander, living close to the town of Höfn so yes, I am a local.

At Nailed It Fish and Chips you will get delicious, hand battered fresh fish served with a smile. 

My fish of choice is a locally caught Atlantic Cod from a fish producer from my hometown who I used to work for as a fisherman some years ago.
