We went for our wedding anniversary. I made the reservation in advance and asked for us to be seated somewhere quieter - in a corner and a little more private. THE AMBIANCE The restaurant is very modern and stylish. When we arrived we were told there 'wasn't really a quiet corner' and seated on a table squashed in between 4... More

This was a birthday meal so we opted for something a bit special and although it was very expensive it was worth every penny. We had the tasting menu (without wine) and we were not disappointed. This is 8 dishes served to share - 4 starters, 3 mains and a dessert. You also get bread with Icelandic butter and lava... More

We picked up this restaurant purely by chance, and what an amazing surprise!!! For the fish-lover I am, my tastebuds were ecstatic!! Service absolutely brilliant, quick and smart, fresh and tasty islandic bread & butter (with lava salt, yummy!) to keep you waiting, the fish gourmet dish was to die for and the dessert (mascarpone sabayon and hot caramel melting...

After researching the many exciting restaurants in Reykjavik, I settled on Grill Market for our first night in Iceland and had made a reservation several weeks in advance. I'm glad that I did, as it was quite crowded on a Saturday evening. Our first impression was that the decor and general "vibe" were stunning...very cavernous, dimly lit, stylish. The service... More

Reindeer hamburger in the Mini burgers (starter) is so juicy and tasty. Actually all food we ordered are very good. Definitely worth a try.

We went here on Trip advisor recommendations and were not disappointed. Decor and ambience were unique and serving staff friendly and informative over our choices of food. Starters of trio of burgers were interesting, followed by the best duck salad I have ever tasted, and burgers that were melt in your mouth. The puddings were also super unique and tasty.... More

We went at lunch time as we were heading to the blue lagoon for the evening. It is an amazing place, the food was fantastic and they even cooked my wife a custom meal due to her food allergies. The venue is spectacular and the staff are first rate in the service. You must pencil this into your schedules if... More
