The cauliflower dish I had was excellent and my company was equally satisfied with the seafood soup and the cod. Desserts were also very tasty. We hadn’t made a reservation but the waiter managed to find a table for the five of us even though...More

Exciting and very well made food made this restaurant visit a great experience. The view over Reykjavík and the great service added to the experience.

We LOVED the lunch menu and the setting couldn’t be prettier! Wish we had been able to return for their evening happy hour when the restaurant rotates.

Thank you Ellen for reviewing us. Very glad you enjoyed our lunch menu. The motor to the rotating floor malfunctioned and is under repairs, so you are not missing out right now. It may take a few days to fix it. Best wishes.

For a start, it's a great place to build a restaurant - unlikely but inspired - and "very Icelandic". Prices aren't cheap (even by Reykjavik standards) but the view is great. Service is relaxed and friendly. The food is beautifully prepared with great combinations of...More

The food was good, much better than would be expected at a tourist destination, and the prices were comparable to other restaurants of the same quality in Reykjavik. The glass domed roof was spectacular, even though the engine that rotates the restaurant had just broken...More

For the price of our dinner ($170 for two people,) this restaurant wasn't perfect although the food was good. My husband and I ordered the same appetizer (smoked arctic char) and the other two people shared a smoked salmon board. Everyone's appetizers except mine showed...More

Great restaurant. Wonderful food. Great 360 veiws of Reykjavik. Relaxing and plenty of room. There is a free shuttle bus from the Harpa to the Perlan. It runs every half hour.
