Iceland Restaurants

  • Hard Rock Cafe

    Reykjavík Region Restaurants

    Eating out is expensive in Iceland. Eating in Hard Rock Cafe is even more exensive. This Hard Rock Cafe is your typical Hard Rock Cafe, Surrounded by great Rock&Roll memoribilia from around the world. Still it`d be a crime to visit Iceland and miss the Cafe.

    4 out of 5 stars

    Reykjavík Region Restaurants

    14 April 2007 - The most beautiful girl in the world served me and my friends, but I didn't get her name. If you're reading this, get in touch - we smiled a lot through out the night, please email me, you're amazing and I want to get to know who you really are. As for the place,.... Great restaurant, lovely setting, excellent food and great value....

  • Pasta Basta

    5 out of 5 stars

    Reykjavík Region Restaurants

    After walking the length of the high street, we decided on sampling dishes from Pasta Basta, a good move! Between us we ate a Calzone and a chicken salad, both of which were very tasty and huge servings to boot. It was clearly a venue used by locals and tourists alike. We sat in the 'conservatory' area, watching the world go by and enjoying a...

  • Perlan

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Reykjavík Region Restaurants

    Revolving restaurant giving superb views of the city Earlier in the day we had visited the phallological museum and weren't sure if this was our imagination, but doesn't this lamb dish look rather like something you might see there?

  • Kaffibrennslan

    4 out of 5 stars

    Reykjavík Region Restaurants

    I wouldn't really call this a restaurant. It's more like a cafe/bar/restaurant. They have a great selection of beer. On weekdays they always have a special beer offer at 390kr. The food is decent but if your main reason for going there is to eat I'd go somewhere else. But it's a cozy hangout, the beer isn't too expensive and for some reason you...

  • Indokina

    3 out of 5 stars

    Reykjavík Region Restaurants

    Surprisingly you can even have Vietnamese food in Reykjavik. The decor is no-frills but the price is right. They also do take-away. After Indokina you must admit that you can have cheap cuisine also in Reykjavik. Also the location is great. Typical ethnic Chinese and Vietnamese food.

  • Caruso

    4 out of 5 stars

    Reykjavík Region Restaurants

    A variety of scrumptious Italian dishes. Many creative dishes. Very good food! Very cozy seating and atmosphere. They had a live violin player (classic!). All in all, a fabulous restaurant and definitely worth the price. Cheese Tortellini with Ham and Blue Cheese sauce (delicious)!

  • Italia

    Reykjavík Region Restaurants

    This is a very cozy family owned restaurant on Laugavegur. The food is great. A classic, one of the oldest restaurants in town. Their pizzas are great as well as the pasta. There was a fire there about 3 years ago and they refurbished it in exactly the same way. Carpaccio starter and pizza or tortellini for main course. Carpaccio is about 1200kr...

  • Local Delicacy

    This local treat is not for the weak stomached. It's putrified shark, which is prepared by burying the shark for 3 months in sand then exposing it to dry in the open air for a few more months. It smells horrible but does not have much taste. I would describe is as a sea salt gummy for lack of better description.

  • Typical of very good Reykjavik...

    Reykjavik restaurants are all good. They were sumptuously kitted out when the banks lent money to anyone who asked and now - well the low value of the kroner means that the prices are cheaper than the UK (except wine), and the banks can hardly take back the decor.We paid about 11 500 ISK for a lovely meal, including wine. Peppered minke whale...

  • Where to find local food.

    A new Icelandic website was launched in July 2012 - the Iceland local food guide.It is aimed at tourists and locals alike. There has not been an extensive guide like this before on where to find Icelandic food. And I know that tourists and locals alike have been complaining about not being able to get traditional food while traveling in Iceland. So...

  • The Blue Lagoon evening meal

    Gourmet food!The resturant is rather like being in the turbine hall of a small power station, high ceilings and large expanse ut the seating area is probably one sixth of the area, the service was different! telling us to hang our own coats up they hovered with menus to take us to our table. They took our drinks order and our food order and we were...

  • Good value for Reykjavik

    Dining in Reykjavik is quite expensive but this place offers fresh seafood in a no-frills setting at a reasonable price. You line up to order and may have to wait a while but the seafood, much of which is on a stick, is worth the wait. It was opened by three fishermen in a small warehouse at the port. I had some great halibut and wanted to go back...

  • Eating out generally

    The prices you should expect to pay in restaurants will be on the fairly expensive side, generally speaking. One roadside farm restaurant we stopped at for lunch in the south on the highway to Vik charged the equivalent of about CAD$15. for two small waffles, which came with a dollop of whipped cream and a spoonful of homemade jam. It was not a...

  • Cheap but tasty

    A bar and grill.Sky Sports etcA huge range of dishes, and at a great price.And for Reykjavik, bloody good value.Upstairs is a room for up to 50 people. We booked this for our 4 night stay. In return for 44 hungry group members, they gave us discounted drinks.So only about £6 for a pint instead of £7 :) Range of chicke, burgers and pasta.The...

It is located on a hill, on top of some huge water tanks, with views across the city.Perlan is a 'special occasion' type restaurant, where locals go to celebrate birthdays and tourist go to enjoy fine dining Reykjavik...

They are palning to introduce a biological menu, they are already serving bio juices and beer. I had a taste and was impressed with it. The surroundings are...

  • Splurge on a 5 course meal from...

    If you want to sample several dishes from one of Iceland's top chefs (named Iceland's chef of the year in 2003), splurge on the "Amazing Race" special at Karolina Cafe in downtown Akureyri. The meal consists of five fabulous courses and, considering that almost any restaurant in Iceland will set you back around $40 to $50, it is worth it to spend a...

  • Dining at Geysir

    The day we toured the attractions of the Golden Circle, we found ourselves ready for lunch after our visit to Geysir. There was a large restaurant attached to a hotel there, but we didn't want a major meal, so decided to brave the cafeteria style cafe in the car park. There were all sorts of fast food delights on offer - from hot dogs to pizzas....

  • Jokulsarlon Cafe

    After a visit to and perhaps a amphibious ride on the glacial lagoon of Jokulsarlon one may be in need of refreshment.Well you are in luck, as there is a small cafe at the lagoon. The cafe serves coffee, sandwiches, cakes and other snacks, and is apparently renowned for its seafood soup.We enjoyed a coffee here after our exploration of the lagoon,...

  • The tea room at Glaumbær

    After you finish visiting the turf farm at Glaumbær, why not take a break at the Áskaffi tea room, just a few strides away? Since it was mid-September and temperatures were below seasonal averages, the excellent hot chocolate really hit the spot!We also had Icelandic crepes, stuffed with cream and rhubarb. Yummy!

  • This is a good restaurant.

    It is a nice restaurant with good food both fish and meat. And it has this great bar upstairs The Red bar. Grilled fillet of lamb with rosemary infused lamb jus.You can not go wrong with the Icelandic lamb.

  • Sushi Icelandic style

    Sushi isn't what you'd normally look for in Iceland, but then again, it is famous for its seafood. This restaurant was very good, although a little slow. The surroundings and excellent service definitely made up for that.

  • A very good restaurant in centrum

    This is a good restaurant cosy and well located, with both fish and meat. It is the same there as all over the place don´t miss the lamb (if you eat that). It is not cheap to go dining in Reykjavik and this would be a bit over avarage when it comes to price. My favorite would be the lamb and lobster.And some Icecream for desert.

  • Great pizza

    Set in one of Reykjavik's historic buildings, once used for housing hawks, Galileo has a lot to impress people with. The lunch and dinner menus change a bit but offer really fresh Italian dishes. The interior is nice and clean and has great window views of Ingolfstorg, or why not sit outside. On days where the sun is in full swing, the outside...

  • Best little cafe in town

    Ok so maybe this isn't exaclty a restaurant. But this coffeehouse is one of the best in Reykjavik. The atmosphere is perfect letting in as much abient light as possible. There are plenty things to read and great leather chairs to sit in and read, drink coffee, nosh on many of the sweet and savoury items for sale. It is truely a spectacular...

  • Outstanding

    The Seafood Cellar is located in the heart of Reykjavik, at the Ingolfssquare, it´s rather expensive but the quality of the food, service and the atomsphere is as good as it gets, some people even told me they think this is probably one of the best restaurant they have ever been to. Exotic Plate, you just get 6 diffrent courses, so you will taste...

Wow..hmm,...

  • Red House

    The owner was one of the friendliest people we met on the whole trip. She went well out of her way accomadting a vegan meal request, and even found us a hotel room.What can I say, the place was just really nice, and the food was great. And we were the only non-locals. You probably wouldn't make a trip to Eyrarbakki for the town itself, but it's...

    more
  • Apotek

    A cool, trendy, modern restaurant in Reykjavik, but with friendly service. Sort of Asian fusion cuisine. Kitchen was very accomodating about a vegan meal request, and turned out a very original, unusual dish (especially considering how few vegetables Iceland has available). Really good food.

  • Best Lobster in Iceland!

    This restaurant specializes almost exclusively in the small Icelandic lobster. Prix fix menu starts out with a phenomenally flavorful bisque. Main course is a beautiful and bountiful pot of tails sauteed with fresh herbs and butter and small potatoes. The tails come with a nice selection of dipping sauces (roasted garlic, skyr) and salad. Dessert...

  • An Omelet and a Party-Place In One?

    I have never had breakfast at 9:00am at the same place where I'd have cocktails at midnight. But at Prikið you can do just that!We arrived in Reykjavik at 9:00am and after checking into the hotel we were desperate for a hot breakfast. Luckily, after walking just 5 minutes from our hotel (CenterHotel Klopp), we stumbled across this cute diner. We...

  • Famous Hotdogs?

    Before going to Reykjavik, we had heard about this hot dog stand near the harbor that had the best hot dogs in the country. So of course it was where we lunched on our very first day in town. Despite the long line, and all the hype, we did not like the hot dogs at all. The only thing we could figure is that they have a slightly smokey taste that we...

  • I Would Kill For the Tandoori Salmon

    Of the 4 nights we spent in Reykjavik, we ate here 3 times. It was that good. We loved the food, the service was perfect, and the ambience is great. The guys who work there became our friends. We were lucky enough, on our third visit, to be given a complimentary sample of the tandoori salmon. I wish we had known about it from the first time we ate...

  • Wonderful dinner

    The ice bar is pretty cool (hehe) The restaurant was great, we split a meal and it was more then enough. (It's ok, we left a good tip even though it is not "expected" it is appreciated.) We split a beef tenderloin filet and had a small salad and a baked potato, and roasted vegetables. It was all delicious.

    more
  • The best fish and chips

    Ambiance is nothing special, and the semi self-catering style is probably not appropriate for a restaurant of this cost level, but quite simply they served perhaps the best piece of fried haddock I think I've ever eaten. Far lighter, fresher, and juicier than the deep fried, heavily crusted fish fries we get here in the U.S. We ordered a sample...

  • Probably the best bargain restaurant...

    Probably the best deal in Reykjavik, if you stick to the specials. We took a picture of the place so we could find it again if (when?) we visited Iceland again. The locals seemed to like the place too, as it was always full when we were there. The salmon and lamb specials.

  • Prices

    Some members have asked me about the prices of food in Iceland, worried because they have heard how expensive the food and Iceland itself are. This is a list of what I really paid in August ’08:- Pizza in a restaurant in Reykjavík: 1.790 ISK- Beer in the same restaurant: 350 ISK (in this case, I really don’t remember if it was a “normal” beer or a...

  • I'm only Going to Spell This Once

    This isn't a restaurant - it's a delicacy to order when you go to just about any restaurant in Reykjavik. These are delightful little things - small balls of dense chocolate cake covered in chocolate and rolled in coconut. Delicious!They seem to be a staple of Icelandic desserts because I saw them several places in the city over the course of my...

  • nice restaurant - Grillhusio Tryggoagota

    This place looks like a typical American diner & it is located in downtown area towards the harbour side. I thought it is a touristsy place but it turns out the food was fabulous.Friendly service & prices are good The seafood pasta dish was delicious

  • Sea Baron at the harbour

    Its a local favorite and its a bit shabby but the food is not bad for its price.The Lobster Bisque is the best while it also serves a variety of Grill Kebabs of fishes & Lobsters.Grilled Fish Kebabs are better than the Grilled Lobster. But I will sure advice not to miss lobster bisque.

  • Best Hot Dog in town

    I was told it is a very popular hotdog stand in Reykjavik & I went down to the harbour and bought 2 to try.250 isk each .I read Bill Clinton ate there.The hotdog is unique, not like the ones I ate in the States. It comes with somekind of ketchup, mayonnaise stuff & fried onions. I think they are famous for hotdogs but I did not really like it...

  • Hamburger with an egg on top.

    Víkurskáli in Vík is a shop and gas-station and joined to Víkurskáli is Víkurgrill which is a popular restaurant with domestic food as well as fast-food. We got a juicy hamburger with an egg on top. The ambiance is good in the restaurant with a great view of The Reynisdrangar rock formations and the coast-line. Ströndin-bistro and bar is in the...

  • Supermarkets

    Food in Iceland is quite expensive, but there are some options not to spend too much.First of all, you can buy some food in the supermarkets, either goods in order to prepare your own sandwiches or take away food. There are some supermarkets both in Reykajvík and the rest of the country. This is a list (not necessary all the supermarkets are here):...
