After trekking in and about Reykjavik, and being unimpressed with the value of other downtown restaurants, an uncomplicated dinner at Sjavarbarinn was a great treat. It is, to be clear, a bit off the beaten track, unless you're planning activities in the harbor area already, but clearly the very hospitable proprietor wants to feed visitors, as he offers pickup from your hotel for dinner service if you are willing to make the trek.
The entrees are delicious, and fresh, and a generous serving, and selection of cold and hot buffet items on offer should please most palettes.
Would suggest the smoked salmon, apple salad, and whatever else might be on offer to augment your meal. It makes for a great hearty meal. Also, barring a shellfish allergy, go for the lobster soup offered to get you rolling. It is outstanding with the house-made brown bread.
