“Brilliant food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The food was cooked to perfection and was excellently presented. The service was also very good. I tried the catch of the day and would recommend it every time.

“Excellent seafood, great service, great location - don't fill up on the bread”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

My wife and I went to Seafood Grill for dinner and had a great meal. I wish I would have skipped the yummy bread because the meal was much too good to no have finished.
Some notes - People were dressed casually but the food was somewhat fancy. They plates all looked and tasted delicious. My dessert had what looked like a fried egg but was meringue with a passion fruit jelly or something in the middle. They had a few beers to choose from but a much better wine selection.

“Fresh seafood with Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Our first meal in Iceland - one of the best meal we ever had. We arrived Reykjavik in the evening, after booking in Hotel Odinsve, on our way to the apartment, the guy pointed out to us this restaurant. We tried it after settle down. It was so busy, in early evening. We were lucky to have a table without booking. The place was warm and cosy. The food served were very fresh, well presented and most importantly - tasty. The service was excellent, waitress very attentive and customer focus. The price was reasonable considering the quality of food and service. Recommended.

“Must try Taste of Iceland menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

Visited 9 Feb '14. Lovely, warm, very professional staff, nice quiet dining area seated downstairs. We were conservative. Myself & the boys - 11 & 12 - ordered from the a la carte but my wife ordered the 4 course Taste of Iceland menu which we all shared. Wished we'd ordered one each but I think you'd have to have a light lunch to manage to finish it flying solo. Go back again without a second thought. Harry
