We were very excited to try this restaurant as it it currently rated as the top restaurant in Reykjavik, however we were sorely disappointed. It has more of a chain restaurant feel...I would say it feels like a fancier version of Outback Steakhouse with the prices of a Michelin start restaurant (which it absolutely it is not). We had the... More

This was a very nice restaurant and the food was excellent with a beautiful presentation. Staff was friendly and attentive. So many great restaurants in Iceland and so little time.

Make sure to get reservations! A culinary experience you won't forget. The place is absolutely fabulous. Great ambiance, drinks and food. It is suitable for couples or friends. the presentation is sceneric, the quality of the food whatever you pick on the menu, you won't get disappointed. I had a three course meal + drinks.

Food was good not blow your mind good but good price was fine for the quality and the portion size. The decor is cool can't take that away from this place. But I honestly think we got the worst waiter in the joint...like no joke didn't explain the menu, was very odd not really explaining the menu, options what we... More

This was my third time at this restaurant and this time I got the horse tenderloin steak. It was so tender that it melted in my mouth. The service is good and the staff is polite. Grillmarkadurinn is a bit pricey but it is absolutely worth it! I recommend this restaurant for whatever the occasion it is!

The dining room was cozy and the food was impeccable. I had sashimi including whale! A fellow diner had reindeer and puffin, both of which were very good. Wine selection was large but expensive.

This was probably one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. I had the grilled lobster with scallops and shrimps with a little salad. Very delicious and high quality food. As desserts, I had the Grillmarkadurinn chocolate, mascarpone with chocolate and hot caramell sauce, also amazing. The atmosphere was very elegant, but not snobby at all. I would... More

We had dinner here before but this time is was a completely different story, your experience should be the same no matter when you dine. The tables are far to close together and cramped which I hate, I felt like a sardine in a tin. The usual duck salad I had was not as described and was not slow cooked.... More

Grillmarkadurinn is centrally located in downtown Reykjavik. It's very accessible by transit and steps away from the Grayline tour hub. We were early for our reservation (severely jet lagged and wanted to eat ASAP!) so we hit up the bar first. We each grabbed a beer and then 45 minutes later, we were shown to our table. The interior decoration... More

The food here in Iceland has been fantastic. We've been here for a week now and haven't had a bad meal but the food here far exceeds it all. An absolute must for anybody visiting Reykjavik. We both ordered the meat gourmet and it was cooked to perfection. It's quite expensive but worth every penny.
