Iceland Bankrupt: Is this a good thing for visitors?

famdoc | Oct 11, 2008 07:40 PM

Last summer, we visited Iceland and found it to be a stunning country with wonderful cuisine.
We also found it unfathomably expensive. Here's a link to what I wrote about dining in Reykjavik:

We anticipate returning in the future, but wonder if the nation's financial crisis has had an appreciable effect on the prices of food. I've read that the exchange rate of the krona (vs. the USD and Euro) has declined by at least a factor of two. Does that meat that dinner at the Sea Baron or 3 Frakkur is now $30 per person instead of $60 or 70? Reports from recent visitors or residents would be appreciated.
