Good but there is better!

This restaurant was good especially the whale - however in terms of fish it was definitely not the best I have had in Reykjavik by any means. Further, prices were quite high in relation to portion size. Nevertheless staff and service was good and friendly.

Disappointing to be honest. We thought we'd try the tasting menu as it would be a good way to try a little of everything. We probably should have just went for a burger or a steak which I'm sure would have been fine. The tasting menu was bizarre and low lights included a fish and orange combo, surely a culinary...

Atmosphere was amazing. We did not make a reservation so they asked if we were ok sitting in a bar type table where we see the chefs making the food, which was fine. They gave us free bread with an amazing spread. All the starters were amazingly good, mixed feelings about some of the main dishes but we were doing... More

We went as a lagre group (40) and had a truly marvellous meal. Fantastic ambiente, very attentive service, MARVELLOUS food and brilliantly matched wines. The best restaurant In Reykjavik!

Grill Market was great. Not the best meal we had in Iceland but probably the best dinner experience. The meal was very good, but not our best meal in Reykjavik. Highlights were the fish soup, languastine tails and Grill Market Chocolate dessert. I had a drink called the Dillinger that was beautiful and delicious. Service was impeccable. The decor is...

Exceptional food in a very creative environment. Open kitchen concept with great grilled dishes. True meat paradise. Prices reflect quality and service. We got a table for 4 at 8:30 on a Saturday night-nice surprise as the restaurant was quite full. We loved their music selection as well. Reasonable wine choices by glass. Just one suggestion-get some real martini glasses-there... More

My wife and I had our last meal here in Reykjavik and were very pleasantly surprised. We decide to go all out and have the Tasting Menu with the Wines. Let me preface this by we never spend that much on a meal, but it was worth it. We had various types of seafood, lamb, and desserts. Specifically, we had... More

It's quite dark downstairs, but nevertheless we encountered good service and a nice selection of meat dishes, albeit at quite high prices relatively.
