Great beer, atmosphere and stellar food. I stopped here on my way back from a museum for a beer on a Monday very early evening. The staff are professional, friendly and efficient. I was blown away by the White Ale. Stellar! But then I sat...down for dinner and ordered the steak with foie gras and crispy oyster mushrooms. I can’t believe how good it tasted. I’d go there again for sure.More

We brought our small wedding group, about 10 people total, to Bryggjan Steakhouse for dinner the night before the ceremony. The lovely staff took excellent care of our party and helped us navigate the menu. It was the first time our group was meeting so...while we were getting over the awkward first moments the team gave us a dedicated space and helped us figure our selves out. We never felt rushed, the portions were generous, and the food was very tasty (for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike).More

I dropped in here while I was down the harbour. They were able to fit me in for an hour between bookings and I really appreciated the staff finding me a table. I found the food wonderful and was able to ask the staff for...their recommendations. Bleikju Ceviche - beautiful dish with incredible flavours Burrata - Their own take on a Caprese Salad which I really enjoyed, however I found the Parmesan Panko coat overpowered the flavour of the burrata. 150g Beef Tenderloin (Iceland) - The best part of the whole meal. Ordered Rare and cooked to perfection, the beef had an incredible taste and texture with no gristle and you could tell it was cooked by people who cared about the meat. Creme Brulee - One of the best I have had in the world and I've eaten a lot of them. Overall I was very impressed by the meal.More

We had many apps and sides which were all good. The restaurant was not crowded. We had a nice evening. Our complaint…the music was very loud and terrible song selections. Songs switched from Whitney Houston to Bon Jovi to Lollipop Lollipop to more 60s diner...then more 80s. It was a weird vibe.More

Went to dinner with my family, the place has a very relaxed setting and i was very surprised with the t- bone steak. it was world class, it was perfectly medium rare, melted in my mouth. and the sides were very good also. I would...reccomend the corn brulee. The place may be a little pricy but the food certainly lives up to the price.More

Lovely food, friendly service and the corn brûlée a separate dining experience. Tender steaks and good desserts. The service could have been faster but as the atmosphere was good I didn’t mind.

I went in 2020 and it was nice. You order and pay through your phone and that's it. Simple and cool! They had delicious boneless chicken wings. So good! I went yesterday 1.2.2022. You have to order the old way so the cool factor is...gone. They took the boneless chicken wings off the menu. So their best dish is gone. Food was good, portions could be larger and the prices are so and so. The staff was wonderful with good service. If Barion would have kept the quick and easy order method and the wonderful wings I might forgive the prices. But sadly I can't :(More

Slightly hidden from the road - looks like a hotel entrance - we walked past the first time. Glad we realised our mistake! Friendly staff let us choose our table (not too busy on either evening visit). Good choice of beers along with burgers /...ribs etc including vegetarian options. Prices pretty reasnoable for Reykjavik. On first visit had the Christmas burger - fun, with great sweet potato fries. So enjoyed it that we came back again the next evening (was also convenient for our hotel), a good place to relax after a long day out. With waterfront location looks like it would be a great spot in the summer. We hope to come back & try it.More
