We were in Reykjavik for three nights and dined at Snaps on the first night. The menu was not particularly extensive but there was something to whet everyone's appetite in our party of four. When the food arrived I was in a culinary paradise and made various noises to that effect. On the second night we trawled the restaurants of Reykjavik for ages to find somewhere different but decided to return to Snaps as we had enjoyed the food so much the night before. We had the same table and the food was as delicious as we remembered from the previous night. On the third night, our friends were celebrating their wedding anniversary and so we returned to Snaps (same table again) for more guaranteed good food. The staff were very friendly and we didn't feel rushed. The price was reasonable compared to many of the other restaurants that we looked at and the atmosphere was very relaxing. We didn't book but I think we were very lucky to get a table each time we went as it was busy every night.

Snaps is in central Reykjavik and is trendy bistro restaurant with a range of dinner items. It caters to a young crowd. The food was good and very ample portions were served. My wife had an excellent mushroom open faced sandwich and I had a club sandwich. Both were good and quickly served. It is worth a visit.

Snaps offers great value for money, both for the quality & variety of the food and for the atmosphere. It's one of those places in Reykjavik that give you the refreshing feeling that you're not in Reykjavik. I would recommend going there at lunch rather than in the evening, because the fish of the day is almost half the price, and you can take advantage of all the daylight that comes in through the restaurant's big windows.
Snaps is also a great place for drinking, with excellent beer on tap. It's a nice place to start an evening in town. As far as the restaurant scene in Reykjavik is concerned, Snaps is a great place.

We stopped in here as it had started raining and my husband ordered the special - catfish. He ate it so fast I am not sure how he knew it was so good. It has an amazing atmosphere. Open kitchen are always fun to watch. Great swiss mocha with dessert. Staff was friendly and the food was amazing.
