The Seafood Grill was highly recommended to me by a group of travelers I chatted with at the Blue Lagoon. I'm so glad I listened! The every course was meticulously plated and expertly prepared. The delicious amuse bouche was served in a quirky terracotta flowerpot,...More

Booked an early dinner with my family and we tried the family tasting menu. So much food! And it was all incredible. I'm sure we tried about 12 courses and I absolutely LOVED all of them. Menu was so creative, every combination of flavours just...More

I found the food here to be both innovative and delicious. From the moment entering the restaurant for our 7:30 reservation We felt good about our choosing the Seafood Grill to be our big splurge dinner for our holiday. My starter of puffin and oxtail...More

We ate at Sjarargrillid while in Iceland for a few days. We walked in on a Friday evening about 6:30 and were given a table despite what was to be a very busy evening: dinner hour on weekend appears to be 7:30 to 8:30. The...More

Absolutely delicious seafood and terrific service. This restaurant, which was newly opened in spring 2011, might just have the best food in Reykjavik. I expect it to continue to rise in the TripAdvisor rankings because this place is the real deal. It is expensive, but...More

If the premises are mundane, the service barely gracious, Gustav Gunnlaugsson's tour de force cusine is simply superb. Maddening situation tough. Everything is confusing but the food: the restaurant name is ridiculous, the decors are tabern like, the tables are modestly set, the menu graphics...More

Having been to Iceland many times, I'm used to Reykjavik's great food, great service and high prices. Sjavargrillid is a new restaurant in the center of Reykjavik and we tried it for lunch. It was so fantastic that we also tried it for dinner. Our...More

Locals on the street all recommended the same place so how could we not eat there. The arctic char was cooked perfectly and the flavors on the plate were...well...unbelievable! And their creme brulee is nothing like any other you have ever had... no really. The...More

This was the first dinner we had after arriving in Reykjavik, and what a welcome it was! I had the lobster feast, which was unbelievable. From langoustine to a very unique "dog sour" sorbet for dessert, this meal was perfect. My wife had the lamb...More
