Well reasonable by Icelandic standards. We were staying at the Hotel Fron and used its restaurant twice. My first meal was the speciality of the day - meatballs a la Marcellos or spaghetti and metaballs as it should have been named. A generous poprtion and quite spicy. My wife had their steak sandwich which was also of a good size.... More

The Scandinavian was next door to the hotel where we were staying and on our first night we ate there because it was convenient and we were tired. However we enjoyed our meal so much that we ate there for the rest of our stay. The staff were very kind and helpful even to the point of going out to... More

we ate here for lunch one day on our holiday in this beautiful city and the food including deserts and drinks were excellent as was the service. The Skyr yoghurt is particularly exceptional if you like yoghurt. Not cheap but not too expensive either and very good food. Recommended.

Situated inside Hotel Fron where we were based and not knowing about the city our first night meal was the lazy approach and we were not disappointed. Simple local produce presented well with friendly service. A perfect start to our break

This restaurant was right next door to the Hotel Fron where we stayed so was very convenient for us. The food was good and reasonably priced for Iceland. All restaurants are horrendously expensive so don't think about having a starter, main course, sweet and drinks for much under £60 per person in many of the restaurants. Yes, per person. We... More

The food in this restaurant is excellent value for money. The fish is so fresh and succulent. The skyr is to die for, try it its a must but try sharing one between two as it is full of protein and fills you up.

Have way down Reykjavik's "Oxford Street" so very central. I echo 589Patrick's review, We also ate here twice. It was tasty, hot, plentiful and not the most expensive food in the capital. The staff are friendly and quick. The loos are disco!!

We eat at the Scandinavian twice during our 6 day stay at the Hotel Fron. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The prices all over Reykjavik are more than you would pay in London and this was expected. The Dishes of the day are good and they have the Iceland desert - skya, which is to... More

My husband and I stopped in here on our last night in Reykjavik hoping for a good "local" type meal. I had the fish of the day which was amazing! My husband had the house pasta which was also really good. It was reasonably priced and a lovely bustling busy restaurant which gave it a great atmosphere!
