“Excellent views, superb food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Fantastic location, with great views over the harbour; and, during the season, a perfect way to watch the sun never set.

Food superb, both in artistic presentation and quality. Memorable.

“Very good, but not La Primavera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Located in the most expensive real estate in Iceland, this place has breathtaking view over the harbor and downtown Reykjavik. Quite big, and you can almost feel lonely there on a quiet night. Owned and operated by the same folks as La Primavera but sadly they had to close that place to start this one. Food is still on par, and seafood dishes are excellent. Bit pretentious fusion deserts but overall this is pretty tasty. Lacks the charm of the old La Primavera though

“perfect start of a concert evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

we started our Jethro Tull concert evening in Harpa with a dinner at Kolabrautin. A perfect choice :-).
We did enjoy very much the innovative, fresh dishes, a mixture of traditional Icelandic menus in a modern interpretation. The wonderful view to the harbour and the very friendly service completed a wonderful evening.
We will be back!!
