We can here in the recommendation of our cab driver and we were not disappointed. The lamb stew was hearty and delicious and we tried the fermented shark and Brennivin. Don’t miss this place when you visit Iceland.

Reykjavik is not the best city for parking. Most of it is street parking, and you'll need to buy a permit at the kiosk. If you're not impaired, walking is usually faster and less frustrating.
