“Very good and friendly and chic”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

Design subdued atmosphere, fresh and tasty icelandic food : prime lamb, salmon, puffin, cob, really good bread served with butter and lava salt. For the dessert an amazing chocolate sphere dissapears under the hot caramel fudge. One of my best restaurant in Reykjavik.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

We had tasting menu and every dish was perfect - this meal was one of the highlights of our trip to Reykjavik! Lovely surroundings and very good service - every meal was quite expensive but this one was definitely worth it - would highly recommend.

“Good food and great service!”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

Went to the Grill Market on a weekday with a friend, we both had the "tasting menu", a selection of 5 or 6 dishes from the menu. The food was great, especially the first course (duck) and the desert was heavenly!
The service was perfect!

“There is a reason for the hype”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

I went here with a few friends after reading the rave reviews here on tripadvisor. Everything was beyond what we were hoping for. We arrived early and had ourselves some cocktails before dinner. I had the espresso martini and it was served to perfection. We had a three course meal and everything we ordered was delicious. The waiters were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

“Loved the food, ambiance, and service”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 via mobile

Had made reservations online prior to trip with prompt confirmation- so no problems. Initially had " Black Death"Icelandic Brennivin- I really enjoyed it. It was not as pungent as I expected and had mild licorice after taste. We were seated downstairs in a cozy booth with partial privacy- very nice!! The Beef Carpaccio was superb! Angelica lamb skewer and Monkfish skewer were both grilled to perfection and delicious! Service was very attentive and courteous.
