This is one on the most stylish places around Reykjavik and it doesn't give away their specialty: grilled meat. The decoration is beautiful with romantic mood lighting and dedicated staff.

Very expensive for the quality of food. The meat was unseasoned, the food came after a long delay, the stuff was unwilling to help and almost got angry when we asked questions about the food. Very loud music at the point that it was almost impossible to talk around the table. Nice decoration and weird place generally.

Good. That's a good start as you'll be in nirvana here. Try the horse it's very tasty and they prepare it right infront of your eyes (if you sit at the bar like i did). It's also a great setting with very charming and attentive staff - go on treat yourself, you're on holiday!

I was dining alone on my last night in Iceland, and desperately wanted to try Icelandic pony again, as I had enjoyed it very much, prepared by a home chef of a food tour I had taken. I wanted to know if pony was really as good as it is, or just a 'one trick pony'. I asked for recommendations... More

We decided to dine at the Grill Market on a recommendation of a friend, we tried to go for dinner but didn't have a reservation so we ended up going the next day for lunch. My sister and I chose to share the Grill Platter, it was a nice sampler of the different grill options. I think the platter came... More

Great dinner with my wife and two boys (12 and 15). Not cheap but well worth it. Highlights - lamb skewers, salmon, meat gourmet and of course the ice cream selection for desert. Great atmosphere and great service as well. Highly recommended.

We arrived at a busy time and had to sit at the bar which was wrapped around the grill. It was good to see the food prepared in front of us, with skill and élan. The service was good and the food excellent. We received our desert for free because they said our main courses were delivered too slowly. Excellent... More

Nothing wrong with the meal, but we expected something exceptional (was supposed to be one of the best restos in Reykjavik). It wasn't exceptional. It was good overall, but some components weren't (pretty much all of the meat was overdone vs how we ordered it, and some of it was pretty tough). It was also expensive, and the service was... More
