About
The restaurant is located down by Reykjavik´s old harbour, just a walking distance from the city centre. Our building, named Solfell, was built in Reykjavik in 1921 by Th. Thorsteinsson for the production of bacalao. The history of the house, the great view over the harbour, along with the interior decor and cosy athmosphere delivers an extraordinary experience for our guests.
