  • 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.

    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?

  • Pasta Basta

    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...

    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.

    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...

  • A fine bistro/bar

    Our favourite place to eat in Reykjavík was Vegamót, which serves a wide variety of international dishes at a reasonable price. It turns into a bistro at night, with a young, attractive crowd (our two bachelor friends who were travelling with us were very pleased!), making it the perfect place to appreciate the Icelanders' fair hair and blue...

  • Grindavik's fresh fish

    This is a local restaurant in Grindavik centre that deserves a recommendation. It is a fairly large place, seats many, and apparently a family party/celebration place serving the local population. So this is the real thing. They also mention if you ask, their capabilities in catering and events planning.They do a la carte, menu of the day or...

    We were looking for a coffee and a place to write postcards and be inspired. Walking the central streets of Reykjavik, Enrico's looked invitiing, and we were not disappointed.The coffee and cakes were excellent, and service to match. The menu looked fine, too, but we opted not to eat on this occasion. Happy to come back here, though. Not Italian...

  • Sushi

    I like this place. It's in an old house which was rebuilt a few years ago. The food is excellent. You usually have to wait quite a long time for your food, (I've usually waited 45 minutes to 1 hour) and the service isn't excellent but I like the place anyway, the interior is cool and the food is great. Great for non smokers, smoking is only allowed...

  • A Great Italian Place

    Cozy ambience, good service, and great food. Pasta Basta is a good place to go to if you're looking for a break from the hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, and other common foods that are a product of your cash rationing.Within minutes of sitting down, you are served warm, soft bread with an olive tapenade. I tried the lasagna and was fairly...

  • Good, Trendy and Inexpensive

    Vegamót is a small bistro and bar just off the main shopping street, Laugavegur, in Reykjavik. The restaurant is able to combine trendy settings (and people) with good food and inexpensive prices.The place fills quite fast during lunch hours, so be early or prepare for waiting in the bar. I tried Bersaglieri pasta, a combination of chicken, bacon,...

  • Don`t miss the Lamb

    As Italian as apple pie! What?? This restaurant is slightly eccentric Italian restaurant where beside the aforementioned dessert, you can dine on pasta, fish, lamb, and other culinary delights in a pleasant century-old building. A lunchtime favorite is the homemade pasta buffet.Dinner menu includes a selection of lamb, seafood and other delictes....

    The excellent sticks and sushi restaurant that was here has closed down, but the new one, Maru, is also serving Japanese and other Oriental dishes. Sushi is still on the menu and grilled food as before, but you can also choose from several Thai dishes. The atmosphere is great and the sevice open and friendly. There is a sake bar in the cellar of...

  • Italian

    This restaurant we merely stumbled upon, however, it is here that I would say I have eaten the best salad I have ever eaten anywhere in the world before. The serving was enormous, this however, did not detract from quality or taste. Price was £11 per serving, not bad in Icelandic terms.

  • Icelandic fish and chips

    Can't remember the name of the restaurant but if you want to eat on a budget (which is rare in Iceland) and want fish and chips with a difference then you need to come to this place. The menu is all in Icelandic but the staff working there are really helpful in trying to translate it to you. I had battered cod cheeks (Gellur) my boyfriend had...

  • Svarta Kaffid

    Svarta Kaffid is all you require to rest your weary traveller's/shopper's legs for a while. It's located in an old house, just along main shopping drag and they do coffees, juices and beers day and night. Plus some excellent bar food items. The country's best soup-in-a-bread-bowl is served here! If you order just one thing, make it this!

    Trir Frakkar (Three Coats) is a hidden pearal of a place. We used guidebooks to find a good alternative to Perlan, and we were not disappointed. Trir Frakkar is located in the city centre, but in a town house housing area (Baldursgata in the old town), with a city centre map you'll find it in 15 minuted or less.Veeery unpretentious, but the food...

  • Fast food menus - easy to understand!

    The fast food menus of Iceland seems to be designed for drunks in a stupor and no-language-tourists. No doubt what you can get if you part with your wallet. I especially liked the graphic details of a menu ad for svid - fast food burnt half sheep head on a paper plate. Just in emergency will I eat here.

  • Fast food capital

    Yeah, yeah, yeah; I know, the food in Reykjavik is supposed to be fabulous... until you check out what the locals actually eat... Reykjavik must be the fast food capital of Europe. At least of the North Atlantic... Certainly beats unhealthy Oslo in the proliferation of the fast food outlets. Wherever you go there will be pylsur, pizza, som e...

  • 24 hrs food supply

    Down by the BSI bus station in Reykjavik is the definite fast food central of the town, Snedingar, drive-in or walk-up, 24 hrs service.They advertise their food to go "Beint i bilunn" (straight into the car). This place saved us several times as we developed the uncanny habit of arriving back in Reykavik 2 at night, all restaurants closed,...

  • Advanced breakfast sandwiches

    For those who understand the concept of open-faced sandwiches, this is a treasure of a restaurant. Jomfruin specializes in "Ekta danskt smurbraud" - real Danish sandwiches. Now, Dasnish with a twist - you will find some typical Icelandic items and raw materials here as well as the Danish stuff. The idea is to have a slice of bread - not bland toast...

    Reykjavik has a lot of places like Solon: establishments with multiple personalities, that is. In the daytime, it's a cafe with salads and soups. (I came in on one brisk afternoon when I absolutely needed a cup of warm broth to defrost my bones.) In the evening, there's a transformation to a chic dining spot. Then, later at night the lights dim...

  • Outstanding seafood, international style

    This was not only the best restaurant I visited in Iceland, it was one of the top two or three restaurants I've visited _anywhere_ in recent years.I usually like to try a different restaurant every night when I'm on a short holiday, but my first meal experience at Apotek was so good, and the menu so interesting, that I felt I _had_ to come back for...

  • Bistro that's a design classic

    B5 is a spiffy place with elegant accoutrements near the very center of Reykjavik. It's name comes from its address: Bankastraeti 5. Looking inside from the street you might think this was some elegant private club, but it's public and quite friendly. I love the soft classic Scandinavian furniture, and the service was swift and professional. I came...

  • Salted Cod Fricassee....oh gosh!

    The menu at this place is incredibly interesting with traditional Icelandic fish ingredients mixed with crazy sauces and spices......who would have thought that cod goes with guacamole? I didn´t, but I do now!They also had an excellent, and reasonably priced, wine list with plenty of choice of wine by the glass for those who don´t fancy falling...

Dishes are prepared with a fusion emphasis of Asian...

  • The Restaurant at the Blue Lagoon

    After your silica bath, after your hot water immersion, after the mud packs and the waterfall massage, you might be a little peckish. I know that I was, and I needed a final good meal before facing the rigors of air travel. The restaurant at the Blue Lagoon offers good Icelandic cuisine in a setting which does justice to the spa, to its location,...

    Cozy italian restaurant, with atmospheric art nuvoe decoration in the windows. They have had the same staff there forever which gives the place authenticity. I've been going here forever and never been disapointed. It's not expensive. I go there with my bf occasionally for a casual night out. For some reason the place reminds me of France, except...

  • Pizza and sandwiches

    This is a small place on Bankastraeti (the lowest part of Laugavegur). They have fresh pizzas, pastas and sandwiches. A pizza slice is about 300kr and baguettes about 600 I think. I worked in this area last summer and I always went there for lunch :) The only disadvantage is that there is only a bar table to eat at there, can't really enjoy your...
