Hi, its Karl.

I am opening later than usual today because of wind. I just don't trust my window to survive the gust.

Anyway, here is a description of the Magic Dust ingredients.

Salt, tomatopowder, onion, MUSTARD, maltodextrin, dextrose... and Magic 😊

The Salt. Well its an old rock.

Góðan daginn gott fólk.

Vissuð þið að það er hægt að sjá timelapse myndir af Jökulsárlóni á vefmyndavél Mílu? Tengill hér að neðan.

Veljið full screen og veljið svo tímabilið sem þið viljið skoða á flettistikunni bakvið örina vinstramegin á skjánum.

Eigið góðan dag öll sem eitt.

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 22 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.

Vegna aðstæðna í þjóðfélaginu sem og heiminum öllum þá er staðan sú að Nailed It verður lokaður frá og með deginum í dag, 22. Mars, þangað til aðstæður breytast til hins betra og hömlum verður aflétt.

Ég þakka ykkur öllum kærlega fyrir viðskiptin fram að þessu og vona...

Good morning.

We've eaten fish and chips throughout our ring road trip, and this place is by far the best I've ever had in my life! The cod was fluffy and fresh. It was so tender and moist, cooked to perfection. The batter is crisp and light. Sprinkle a bit of the magic powder too! (it's amazing). Could've been 2x the price and it would still be worth it! I'd go out of my way to drive back to get it again if we had more time.

Amazing!! Best fish & chips with batter that just melts. The owner is the sweetest and made sure to squeegee off the benches for us. Try the magic dust! Truly a can’t-miss for this area with excellent prices. Will definitely be back on our next trip!

Sooo tasty! Cod was incredibly tender, flaky and flavorful. I like my batter a little more delicate (less rich) but this won over Mia's for my husband, hands down for quality of fish and crispy batter. The owner was so friendly, I want to go back again and again! A great lunch with cute blue and yellow picnic tables after lagoon iceberg 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.
