This was the first restaurant we ate at in Iceland, and we enjoyed our fish and chips. The kids menus are very reasonable and large portions. Friendly staff.

I had been to Grillhusid at least two times before and been quite pleased with food and service. This time was an exception. Service was quick and swift as usually. Orders taken promptly and food came about 10 minutes after we ordered, even if the place was quite full. I ordered grilled chicken breast in a bun. The plate looked... More

We both had lamb chops, they were cooked to order, my friend is always insistent on well done and always disappointed but not here, they were well done. Tiny little baked potatoes and coleslaw was a strange but not unpleasant combination. Desert was ok, chocolate cake a little tasteless but the ice cream was nice. The place is clean and... More

I went here with a group of students recently. The food was good and the waiters were friendly. I would recommend this restaurant, although this is the only restaurant we ate in so I cannot really compare it.

The modern restaurant is a pub and American diner. The waiter was very nice and the service was good. We ordered two different burgers and we were able to swap sauces (I had garlic sauce instead of mustard in my burger). The food arrived quickly and the portions are large. We also had two starters (share the nachos, there are... More

I went to Grillhúsið before a concert in last week and we got worried right away because the service was so slow and we did not have so much time. I got BBQ ribs, fine BBQ taste but they could have been served hotter for my taste. We had also fish of the day and it was overcooked and dry.... More

We found this quirky bar-restaurant after stopping off for Coffee at the Ida Zimsen bookstore/cafe nearby and after sneakily observing peoples meals through the window as we walked by we decided to return for our own evening meal that Friday night. We arrived early, around 7:15pm and had one of the last remaining tables - It has more a pub... More

I really enjoyed this place. There were 3 kabobs on a bed of rice and grilled vegetables. Service was excellent and if it falls down at all it would be on ambience. It is a little tired and tries to replicate an American diner with rock and roll artifacts. I probably would go again but strictly fort the food. Dean... More
