Need more of this place in my life!!!

The meat, god damn it's bloody good! I had lamb skewers to start followed by beef tenderloin and it was superb, some of the best i've scoffed in my short life. I finished up with the chocolate dessert which was decent too. Overall, i need more of this place in my life! Great food and good service... read more

Five of us had dinner here and we all agreed it was the best dining experience from our Iceland trip. We also tried some of the other highly rated restaurants in Reykjavik and this came out top. Even the older members of our party enjoyed the food, atmosphere, unusual decor and professional service. The freshly baked bread was delicious and... More

Seen the reviews and thought we would try it. Unfortunately we hadn't booked and although we were initially greeted very warmly by the young front of house staff, one of whom went to see if we could be accommodated, an older guy then came up to us, looked us up and down quite rudely then smirked that he didn't have...

Gorgeous, unique setting. Wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable staff. But more than anything else, the food is heavenly. We had seafood bisque, sliders, arctic cod and lamb shank. We didn't even have room for desert. Everything was done to perfection. Rich, delicious dishes that were beyond satisfying with many layers, nuances and complexities and presented in a stylish fashion. The apricot bread... More

walked in for an early dinner at 6pm with no reservations, place is empty. Maitre'D grilled me why I did not have a reservation... Finally seated us, and things improved rapidly: great food, service and a memorable meal. Better make reservations

My boyfriend and I came across this restaurant while wandering around Reykjavik. We'd come across it on trip advisor briefly when looking for inspiration for somewhere to eat and put it down as a "it looks good, put it on the list of potentials to keep an eye out for. It could be easily missed as it's not on the... More

Four days in Iceland! Best meal undoubtedly! Very cozy atmosphere (better go downstairs). Good for all kind of grilled food (party of four, so different orders: lamb - mine, was perfect, lobster and horse steak, yes it's true!). The gentile waiter brings the dishes and explains what each element is and how they are done, with a beautiful combination between... More

My partner and our friends went to Iceland for the weekend and the men suprised us with a reservation at the Grillmarkadurinn. It was absolutely out of this world. The presentation, mix of flavours and service was outstanding. I could not think of anything that could improve it. Our waiter was the best I've ever experienced...ultra professional but friendly at... More
