“Perlan is worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Excellent 360 views of Reykjavik for photography. Free entry and the taxi cost was 1500 IKR from the Hilton Hotel. The lobby at Perlan creates a good spacious ambience for a private party hire or corporate event. They even have palm trees in the Lobby.

“Lots to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Although not downtown in Reykjavik, easy to get to just off one of the main highways. Part museum, part restaurant, and a great view which in my mind made the trek well worth while.

“Fantastic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Went the other day for the lunch buffet, the food was very good and there was a good display of different kinds of food, starting with cold starters, sushi, salads, hot food and lots of deserts. Everything was fresh and tasty.
The view from up there is great with half of Reykjavík, Reykjanes and the mountains to the east of Reykjavík laying in front of you.

“Evening buffet.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Took my family there for the second time. The service was much better than the first time and the staff is friendly but could keep a better eye on the buffet so that it is fully stocked. The fish, the Indian and the Asian dishes were very nice and there is a lot of things to choose from. If you don´t like raw meat there is no other choise. But the view is fantastic and the restaurant is smart.
