Great food, usually over generous portions, not a bad thing - I gather that locals in the know think this is one of the best places to hang out. I think they are probably spot on. We ate there twice and both times it hit the spot. You may need to book a table in advance when it's busy season.

Very nice restaurant, sophisticated intrerior, good food and nice staff. We ordered tasting menu for about 9400ISK. It was totally worth the price. There was a little bit of everything in the menu - meat, fish, seafood, bird. We were served 8 courses. I really liked 7 of them and dessert blew my mind :) Remember to make resevation, because...

The food and service was outstanding. My daughter and I had the Chef's tasting menu and ate every bit of food that came our way....all nine dishes. We had been warned about how expensive everything would be, so we were prepared for the $$$$ bill. Would we do it again - most definitely yes.

Great food and service. There are some unusual offerings such as puffin and horse as well as more conventional dishes. The duck main course and the chocolate and caramel desert were great. This was our best meal during a fortnight in Iceland.

Fancy interior. Nice staff. Value for money. A bit difficult to find. Adress Lækjargt 2A, but It is actually in the backyard. Enter from crossing street

Great burger (though really should be eaten with a fork and knife because it fell apart), and really really good curly fries! :) Friendly service (not something so easily found in Iceland), and quite impressive decor. High quality food.

Fantastic meal in a fashionable restaurant. We'd booked to go once during our stay and, once we'd been, we booked again to go back three days later! We'd definitely recommend the Grill Market Chocolate.

We had our first dinner in Iceland in the grill market - at that time Nr. 1 on TA in Reykjavik. So we had high expectations. The service was very friendly, fast and attentive. Fruit bread with butter and salt was offered (as usual in Iceland) and delicious. We only had a main course. Fish Gourmet and Meat Gourmet. The... More

Really nice atmosphere with cool interior. Service was great as well as the food. We had the tasting menu with wine. Very nice combinations and different taste served beautiful on plates. Table reservation is a must. Food also available to be ordered at the bar for drop in guests.

Design subdued atmosphere, fresh and tasty icelandic food : prime lamb, salmon, puffin, cob, really good bread served with butter and lava salt. For the dessert an amazing chocolate sphere dissapears under the hot caramel fudge. One of my best restaurant in Reykjavik.
