The restaurant looks very nice and atmosphete was nice but slow service and the steak was nothing special. Not worth the money they charge.

We tried the minke whale starter, the three mini burgers starter and horse steak main during our visit. Food was good and service was impeccable. Price was reasonable for the service and level of dining and the portions were a good size too (two of us shared the two starters and one main and simply could not fit in another... More

I just love the place. The price is high but the food have been worth it. Try the THE GRILLMARKET CHOCOLATE for sweet ending.

I'd like to highlight that this review is about the food here, not the service. So, this restaurant was recommended by our AirBnB host. It certainly looked the part on its website. We turned up for lunch and were warmly greeted and shown to a table and served delicious cocktails whilst awaiting our food. Hubby and I had the seafood... More

The restaurant is beautifully and cleverly designed and decorated. Everything we ordered was absolutely exceptional. For meat lovers, the Meat Gourmet entree is a must. Easily one of the most amazing dishes I've ever had. The dessert sampler is an incredible and fairly economical way to taste satisfying portions of all of the options. The service was friendly and formal.... More

It was our first night in Reykjavik and got the holiday off to superb start. We opted for the tasting/sharing menu and we were glad we did. The food was excellent, the vibe/interior of the restaurant was superb and the staff were great. This restaurant needs to be on your list if you are visiting Reykjavik.

We were wandering around looking for somewhere to lunch when I spotted the menu table for this restaurant down a side street. Very glad I did! We had the tasting menu which was wonderful - every course (all six of them) a delight. The atmosphere and the décor is fabulous and the service was great. Lunch was so good that... More

Had a great meal here - very generous portions and top quality. All food we had in Reykjavik was good - from a noodle bar to this more high end dining. The setting was great too - dark but modern. Would highly recommend this - cost was around £180 but we did have G&T and a bottle of wine (for... More
