We went to the Grillmarkadurinn tonight for our evening meal. The restaurant was amazing, great interior and polite staff. The food was delicious, one of the best we have ever had (I highly recommend the beef tenderloin, it was incredible). Desert was such an experience, really tasty and the way they were presented added a real drama. It is a... More

My husband and I were given a recommendation for this place by a friend who had recently traveled to Reykjavik so we made reservations right away. We were told to get the tasting menu and not ask questions so that's what we did! First of all - the decor is incredible. I never thought I'd hear myself say this, but... More

My wife and I went to Grillmarkadurinn during our trip to Reykjavik. It was fairly expensive even by Icelandic standards, but overall the food was good. We found the service to be excellent. The food was quite tasty – I had the horse tenderloin and my wife had the mini-burgers. It was odd to receive curly fries with a meal... More

We didn't have reservations to they graciously sat us in the grill area. We sat at a counter that faced the kitchen and I think we had the best seat in the restaurant. There is something special in being able to watch your dinner actually being prepared. The bar area downstairs is beautiful and comfortable. The food was outstanding and... More

Like others my boyfriend and I chose this place due to the high rating on Trip Advisor. I was very unimpressed. The price of the food was to be expected. Don't go here if you are looking for a cheap meal. The service was really poor and almost rude at times. The ambiance was nice, but not traditional in any... More

We didn't have a reservation but they gave us a table anyway. Lively place with beautiful design. While we waited initially to be served, once they started they were very attentive and helpful. We both had the meat selection and it was really good. The curly fries were some of the best I've ever had. The meal was wonderful but... More

Because of the rave reviews on Tripadvisor, we stopped by this place for lunch. Understandably, the lunch menu was much more limited than the dinner menu. We had pork ribs to start and the boyfriend had the red fish. Craving lamb, I ordered a couple of the skewers of it and also asked for some grilled mushrooms. When the food... More

Takes a little work to find - it's tucked behind another building, but worth the trip. Steak cooked to perfection, flavourful and tender. Good atmosphere and lovely presentation. Definitely remember to save room for dessert!

Amazing restaurant, beautiful contemporary design, cool cocktails (try chilli mango!), great food! It is not cheap, I would say London prices. Mini burgers (trio with whale, puffin and smth else) make a good starter, and then all fish main dishes were great. Recommended!

I went to Grillmarkaðurinn with my husband for our aniversary and we both loved it. We tryied few different cocktails and they where all better than the one before, also the athmosphere in Grillmarkaðurinn was great. Not to dressy but the best food I have ever had. We took the tasting menu and loved it...
