This was my second visit to Sumac and although the food was ok, it was nothing special. Everything was a bit pricey, whether it was the drinks or the food, especially the starters and snacks. My whole group agreed that this visit was ok, but...More

Went with my boyfriend and we had the baked cauliflower, deep fried cod and giant shrimp. The food was excellent, i would definitely recommend, especially for pescetarians and vegetarians. The restaurant also has great vegan options!

A stylish restaurant in the center of Reykjavik. It has a unique concept of Icelandic and Middle Eastern blend. Service was very good. I I enjoyed the roasted cauliflower and the flatbreads the most. Worth a visit!

I've only been there once, but it was simply GREAT. I loved all the food we got and it had such a unique taste, very pleasant. The service was excellent as well!

If you visit Sumac I strongly encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and go for something you usually wouldn't. I, for example, am a Class-A carnivore and went for the "Roasted cauliflower" - and was glad I did, I had no idea...More

My friends and I visited for happy hour twice in one day the cocktails and service and decor was so good! Best cocktail I’ve ever had and such lovely bartenders. I loved the Arak sour!

We had the set menu without the wine. The food was Lebanese style. Excellent flat bread, hummus, slow cooked salmon and more for starters. Main dish wash lamb with spicy potatoes and pistachio ice cream as a dessert. Service was great. The only negative was...More

We lucked out coming here for dinner. Not only is the food great and crafted with care, but also the service and ambiance were exceptional. After dinner I was moved to thank Chef Þráinn Freyr Vigfússon for the evening´s meal. We certainly enjoyed the flatbread...More

The restaurant is named after Sumac, a deep red berry that grows along the Mediterranean coast and throughout the middle east. The smell of our coal grill will greet you as soon as you enter, where we cook a mixture of meat, fish, and vegetarian dishes. We are also gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan friendly. Our menu can be described as a narration of pristine, Icelandic seasonal ingredients, submersed in exotic spices influenced by mediterranean and Middle-eastern flairs. This is Icelandic cuisine with luscious and inspiring influences mainly from Lebanon and Morocco, while the bar includes wines and spirits from Lebanon, Morocco, new world and old-world wines including organic options, plus our specially house-made concoctions and classic cocktails. The interior of the restaurant, with a large bar and open kitchen, is a designer restaurant that creates the perfect atmosphere for an adventurous night out. The industrial tile and concrete walls meet light leather booths and perfectly lit lamps, while green plants and large windows lighten and freshen the vaulted ceiling and garden rooms.
