Situated on the top of the Radisson Blu Saga Hotel in Reykjavik with a commanding 360 degree view of the city which is fantastic at night. It certainly has the "Wow" factor This is rather expensive but with the quality of food, service and location it's what one would expect and I would say... read more

Went there in november with a group of friends. I went there a couple of times 15-16 years ago, heard the standards had dropped a little since then so I didn't really know what to expect. It turned out to be a fantastic evening for us all. We had a three course group menu with paired wines and just couldn't... More

So the four of us were staying at the Radisson blu Saga, and on our first night were too knackered to head down into town. On that basis we decided to try the Grillid since it didn't mean we had to go outside! Wow, was that a good choice. We all went for the 'surprise' four course tasting menu. It... More

This was a little surprise - we had no idea it even existed until my Step-Dad accidentally took the lift all the way to the top floor. The view is breathtaking. You can see so much of Reykjavik! We had some lovely cocktails followed by some incredible courses. Lobster soup, traditional Icelandic snacks, ray and lamb. We did want to... More

The game/smoked meat plate looked a bit off-putting at first but I ended up eating a lot of it, even though normally I'm not a bit meat eater. The ling was absolutely delicious and the cheesecake with bilberry sorbet was also, very unusual.

Whilst the hotel wasn't great, this 8th floor restaurant was a nice surprise. The service and ambience was very good and the meal itself was excellant. Even the chef popped out with a dish. Highly rcommended.
