This is a hotel restaurant, but with a separate entrance so the hotel business does not intrude on the restaurant experience. The menu is limited, but everything we had was of a high standard. I would especially recommend the lamb. Wine list did not offer...More

Stopped in here for dinner, there were 4 of us. We had beer and soup and salad. The bread served with butter on a lava rock was special! Excellent service!

Solid effort, needs some small adjustments. Very understated and situated in the basement of a hotel.

Excellent food and service. The staff was polite, helpful and professional. The food - especially the scallops and the sorbet - was the best we had while in Reykjavik. Should I ever travel back to Iceland, I'd definitelly visit there again.

We arrived in Iceland and booked the tasting dinner at Isafold without any expectations. The ambiance was great, the staff very friendly and the food was a good representation of Icelandic food.

My sister and I stumbled across this place after a very disappointing experience at another restaurant (in which we placed 3 different orders and all 3 times the waiter had to return to tell us that item was out of stock). Boy, were we glad...More

A lovely restaurant within the CenterHotel, a little hard to spot as the sign is set high and the hotel is fronted on a side street. This is NOT your ordinary hotel dining spot. Though it has a slightly limited menu, our group of 6...More
