Because you're worth it

This restaurant was recommended by a tour guide. We had to book and the place was full of locals. It is atmospheric and has great service. The food was superb. It is not cheap but it is worth it. Only had a main course but it was enough, delicious and filling. Highly recommended.

We had dinner at Grillmarkadurinn and found it to be a very satisfying experience. Upon arriving, we were led to the downstairs cellar level, which had an interesting decor, involving a combination of Icelandic lava and modern overtones. My wife had Seafood Soup and Duck Salad (both composing her "entree"), and I had Grilled Lamb. The waitstaff was very attentive,... More

... are some of the words to describe our experience at this great restaurant downtown Reykjavik. We had the 9 course tasting menue, which took us on a fantasic journey through pure and creative dishes based on traditional Icelandic cuisine and materials (lamb, whale, puffin, mussels, cod, monkfish, icecream w/chocolate, skyr etc). Service was professional, warm and efficient. Definitely worth... More

Local tastes with a little bit of everything: dried fish, squid, whale (rare, just like a perfect steak!), puffin, mussels, cod, monkfish and... More

The food at Grill Market is superb and the atmosphere is also great - I loved the moss and lava...and you must, even if you don't need to, go to the bathroom. Definitely worth checking out for the "foss". Grill Market is trendy and hip, but don't let that throw you off...it's relaxing, the service is great, and the food... More

I had the grilled Icelandic langoustines and they were excellent but 8 were too many even for me. My wife had the three fish grill and it was also excellent. Service was efficient, friendly and fluent in English as has been our experience in Island.
