I enjoyed one of the best meals of my life last night at the Grillið Restaurant. This place has been around for as long as I remember and Im still raving about the last meal I had there about 20 years ago. It was high time I visited again as I had a meal that I can now rave about... More

Beautiful location, with high end dining & an ambitious chef. We were allowed the time to savour our meal, with a couple of complimentary courses added in. The portions were satisfying without being too much, which allowed the innovative flavour combinations to shine. I had the langoustines with smoked onions - a revelation!

I will not be able to do a review justice as I am not a poet. Chef Sigurður and his team created by far the best tenderloin I’ve had, and I grew up on Alberta beef. The complimentary charcuterie and amuse-bouche were divine and dessert left me with a grin I couldn’t hold back. My biggest goal for a return... More

The view of Mountains, the city and ocean in this restaurant is amazing. The food and service was of high standard. Only complaint is that the wines where not cooled, and the selection of the main course was only between fish and lamb.

I dined at Grillid last week at the Food'n Fun festival. I had the 6 course tasting menu with selected wines. It was amazing, not only the food but the wines as well as it was obvious that thye had really carefully selected the wines. I'm looking forward to coming back.
