“Simple food, simply overpriced.”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Eat here if you are staying at the Hilton and are exhaughsted. The menu is uninspired and the atmosphere is trendy but dull. Overly modern. They only had two types of fish, and both were cooked the same way. If you do eat here I'd suggest the Icelandic tapas, which were quite good, if pricey for 3 very small portions, $23... The shellfish soup with lobster $15, was tasty, but the portion was a lot smaller than it looked as it was very frothed, so don't think it'll fill you up. Instead head to The Fish Market, though you may spend about the same, you'll get a lot more.

“disappointing visit this year”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I always have dinner at The Vox when in Reykjavik every year.However,it was a little disappointing last August.The food was pleasant but not outstanding.And we had to ask for the last third of our bottle of wine .Only the first 2 thirds had been poured into a carafe,which we found rather strange.Obviously,people from other tables were less cautious and we could see that the rest of the bottles were taken away back to the kitchen..for the waiters to enjoy?We did not enjoy the cheating!

“Not if you are hungry”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

It wasn't my choice of place, so I just joined some friends. While generally it is quite pleasant space, and interesting menu, the service was somewhat snooty, and the food was, well, interesting, but I like things more wholesome.

“One of the Best Restaurants”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Vox is the main restaurant in the Reykjavik Hilton. The restaurant was exceptional in all respects. Young Icelandic chefs prepare local ingredients in tasty, healthy and attractive ways that positively surprised us for being so innovative. Fresh seafood is the centrepiece of the menu offerings. Everything was delicious. The plating was beautiful and exceptional. Our server won an award for excellence in Iceland. You must try this wonderful restaurant.

“outstanding cuisine, excellent service.”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Unique! one of the best, most memorable meals I've ever had! Ok, its a bit pricey, but this was an experience. The celery foam was just unbelievable. This was an exemplary case of new Nordic cuisine.
