I really want to review the Hlemmur food hall, which contains Krost restaurant (and five or six others under the same roof. The food hall (Matholl) seems to be a feature of central Reykjavik, as there are several. Several food outlets and bars are clustered...around a central area with tables and chairs. You arrive, get a drink, wander round the different menus on offer, order your food and get a beeper which flashes when your meal is ready. It's ideal for a group of friends - one wants pizza, one wants fish and chips, one wants Vietnamese - no problem. You order and pay for your own choice, but all eat together round the same table. Not fine dining, but great fun. Maybe there should be a space on TA for this kind of experience - or have I missed it?More

Nestled in an oasis of food and drink this little gem with a warm welcome and great food is a welcome find. Has fantastic selection of drinks especially for me the rum! Not open late so get there early and enjoy before home to bed...or hitting the nightlife of Reykjavik.More

Lunch was great. We shared a lunch special with extra app,’. Cod, Arancini and Cauliflower were all good, but cauliflower dish was amazing! I had a glass of Chablis, husband had a local IPA. Staff friendly.

Nice place for a quick dinner. Although the order was wrong, the food was ok. I ordered a burger but I got a grilled chicken instead. Also service was quick.

Absolutely delicious!!! The restaurant is inside a food court, but the quality of food is restaurant level. Try the cod, fresh & tasty. Would highly recommend it.

Mmmmmmm - such food and wine. Great selection of both and all excellently executed. Advice on the wine was spot on, and we even got to taste a few to make up our minds. The cod and the steak were also super, but those fries...are amazing. Wish they hadn't run out of lobster as I was hoping to taste that too, but I guess it is just too popular.More

I had the burger and hubby had the cod. They were cooked perfectly and delicious. The chef really knows what he is doing and I’m sure he will have a high end restaurant in the near future. Would definitely go back.

Don’t let the outside appearance for the food court dismiss the visit : it is an outstanding cuisine for fish and shellfish. We absolutely loved the lobster (the real thing not the langoustines served elsewhere - with are good but it is not lobster) and...we had also a perfectly fresh perfectly cooked and season cod. I think it's a great place for lunch, but avoid a big breakfast if you plan to do so. Great local white beer served with orange.More

The Atlantic cod and the chicken salad were scrumptious. We enjoyed every morsel. The prices were more reasonable than other restaurants in town. Excellent selection of beer and wine as well. Krost is in a food court with other restaurants.
