Spectacular sunset views

The bar and restaurant are located at the top of the stunning concert hall building. We just stopped in for drinks in the bar. Service was slow but friendly and the drinks and view was great.

We went to Kolabrautin on the last night of our holiday for a special occasion and could not have asked for more. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet (it was a Monday evening) but that just made it like our own piece of paradise. The views of the sunset through the evening were spectacular over the harbour. The service was perfect... More

The owner of this place used to own the best italian place in Reykjavik, La Primavera. That place closed when he opened up Kolabrautin. But the new place is at it's best when it does the simple, fantastic north italian courses that made La Primavera both the best and most popular place in town. Kolabrautin can also be very good....

Went there the other day for dinner as a part of a business meeting. We all had the christmas menu, as it was the only thing on offer. I was looking forward to it as I had never eaten at this restaurant before. The meal started out great with a selection of very good starters - salmon, reindeer, soup and... More

My wife and I have eaten here twice. The first time was the evening after our wedding in Reykjavik 2 years ago - and then again on a return visit 2 months ago. Superb food, gracious and friendly service, outstanding views of the harbor and the city. It's pricey but if you can swing it, definitely worth it.

We had looked at their menu on their website same day and it looked fine and fairly priced. When we arrived we informed the waiter that we were going to an event in 2 hrs. First surprise was...

For the prizes, what ends on the plate, lacks imagination and inspiration. The food was very good but just a bit plain. Generally I would expect a more interesting menu at a place like this. It didn't do anything to set itself apart, except for the stunning view, which is not credit to the chef.
