“The Pearl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Perlan sits on top of a hill so up there you can have an unobstructed view of reykjavik. We had a buffet dinner(~8000ISK) at their revolving restaurant. Food was great and service was excellent.

“Get up there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We had an excellent lunch at the cafeteria, non-rotaing, on the floor below the roating restaurant. Stepped outside for pictures, and it was very cool! We could not fit the restaurant into our schedule, but it looked GOOD! We spent time on the deck, and we went through the Saga Museum downstairs. Very cool. Very well done.

“Great view on a clear day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Would have been a lovely view of Reykjavik if the day had been cleared. It was raining and quite foggy which was a shame. Check the time of the Viking Exhibition as it didn't open til 12 in the Winter so we had to hang about. Was easy to get to though we just got a bus from the central bus station. Viking exhibition is excellent very life like. No charge for the view but there was for the exhibition but that has full audio and was about £7

“Amazing Place for walkers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

The views are amazing from here and the Pearl itself is a piece of art. Go inside, go to the outside balcony and take loads of photos! Wrap up warm in the winter! Have a Coffee!

“Quick trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

I didnt eat here but did go for a look around and I have been told that the restaurant is very good.
Great views, the 4th floor cafe which is open during the day has an observation deck which gives a great view over Reykavik, There are also plenty of walks from here and it is close to the man made beach so would be a good spot in the summer.
There is also a very small christmas shop which is open all year.
