This is a wonderful spot for dinner. We had a wonderful spot by the window looking at one of my favorite spots in Iceland, the "church mountain". The food and atmosphere are definitely five stars! Thank you!

Best meal of the trip and one of the best meals I've ever had in a restaurant. My husband even agreed!! He had the cod and I had the lamb!! Even the accompanying sides were some of the best I've tasted. The lamb was juicy and tender, a lot like filet mignon. If I ever get back to Iceland, I will make a special trip just to eat here again. Loved it!

Friendly, if slightly offbeat, staff. Nice views of Kirkjufell. If you are seated near the kitchen, be prepared to give the chef (also the owner I believe) and in-person review.

We found this amazing restaurant on our road trip in Iceland and it was the best restaurant so far. The portions are excellent and the food incredibly fresh. The service is very efficient and we would highly recommend this place!

A very pleasant surprise. The food was very high quality and nice presentation. We had the puffin, fish skins and scallops as appetizers. For the main course we ate the Halibut and the Lamb. Everything was very good and tasty. The scallops had a nice taste with the warm spinach and apples. The lamb was really tender and had a nice salty skin that gave it a nice flavor. We stopped in Grundarfjordur for one night on our journey around the island. There are only three restaurants here, one was temporarily closed and the other has a 3.8 rating servings burgers and other fried foods. Bjargarsteinn was our choice and turned out above our expectations. The decor is homey and quaint and the menu varied and unique. If you are looking for a good meal, I would highly recommend it.

Go and eat here if you love seafood. You will not regret it. The service, food and ambience were superb. The locals eat here. Don’t spoil it for them but do join them.

Loved this place! We walked in without a reservation but we were seated quickly. Service was welcoming and spot on. Delicious and beautifully plated food from start to finish. Highly recommend this stop for the food, service and the view!

Best meal in Iceland for sure. We booked ahead for a table, knowing there were few restaurants in the area. Unfortunately, we were running late for our reservation time but the team made it work and were able to seat us within 30 mins any ways. Loved the Icelandic weather cocktail (really unique), lamb was absolutely delicious, and amazing seafood appetizers (mussels, scallops). Would absolutely come back during another trip!

These guys rocked. Gave us a table after closing and food was outstanding. Meat eaters loved the puffin and filet . The Halibut was one of the best I’ve ever had - and I’ve eaten it fresh in Alaska. Iceland Halibut was best. Servers Amal, Ellla, Eva- awesome team- love this place. Highly recommend this place

Misled by the waitress about the size of the tasting menu (after asking her specifically).. She admitted she was wrong but took no responsibility for her mistake - and so did the chef. Normally the restaurant or the staff has to bear the responsibility for their error, not the guest who was left hungry and disappointed by the undermining and even insulting attitude

Bjargarsteinn Mathus provides an incredible culinary experience that caters to a high dining palate while still being accessible to more casual consumers of food. The quality of ingredients used by the restaurant - top rate. And the chef is extremely talented, in beautifully plating the whole thing up, while making sure the flavours marry together in a wonderful combination which we were clamouring to eat - I'd put some of the wonderful fish, a bit of the homely legumes, some vibrant sauce and sweet onions onto one spoonful for what was literally termed 'the god bite' by myself and friends. For us, the tasting menu of starters and dessert were incredible too. I look forwards to returning to Bjargarstein Mathus when I come back to visit Iceland one day.

It's our second visit to this wonderful restaurant the last being 3 years ago. It has a really great vibe to it with very friendly staff and a super host. The food is first class with many of the dishes being sourced from the local area. I would say you need to book as its very well supported.
