My wife and I wanted to treat ourselves to a nice dinner one night in Reykjavik. This restaurant didn't disappoint. Terrific atmosphere and décor. A definite step up from most restaurants in the area which are like bars with food. My wife tried the horse and was surprised at how much she liked it. Looked like a steak and was... More

Wow! There were times in that meal when the flavors overwhelmed my senses and I couldn't talk from pure enjoyment. If you have one night to drop a pretty penny for excellent food, GO HERE.

My husband and I went for our last night in Reykjavik and luckily walked into Grillmarkadurinn. We got the tasting menu and it was the BEST meal we've ever eaten!!! We had 3 starters: duck salad, whale, puffin burger, then 3 mains sea trout, rib eye and lamb, then the biggest, get your insulin ready dessert! The bill was reasonable... More

Had some steak and beer and it was delicious. The staff was polite and the place itself was beautiful. Would highly recommend it to anyone in Reykjavík.

A warm welcome, comfortable seating, beautiful waterfall sinks in the toilets, excellent cuisine, great wines, excellent staff. I indulged with the Tasting menu and was very pleasantly surprised. Thought provoking food and flavoursome dishes very well presented. Puffin burgers and Minke Whake steak were the... More

Went here for my birthday, my wife's treat. This place had been on our list for a long time, having tried most of the other fancy restaurants in Reykjavík. We were seated at a two person table, quite close to our neighbors, but it still felt private enough. We couldn't really listen in to other people's conversations. However, I found... More

We came here, with a dinner reservation, as a group of 6 on our first night in Reykjavik. Yes, the prices are a little high, but considering the atmosphere & food, I found it to be very worthwhile! We enjoyed all of our dishes. I ordered the cod & was not disappointed. I'd recommend going & just enjoying the experience... More
