Description: A five story concrete building that once housed offices on the upper floors and a metalwork company on the ground floor, now is the home of restaurant The Steakhouse on the ground floor, the four floors above are now apartments. The old harbor area of Reykjavik has in the last couple of years, changed in to a real gem where various cuisines, museums and arts and crafts have replaced the metalworks and fisheries. The newest addition is STEIKHÚSIÐ, which simply means „The Steak House”. The name is a deliberately this simple and descriptive, the aim is to be the only steakhouse you think of after the first visit. The heart of Steikhúsið is the coal oven from Mibrasa and the soul is our own way of tendering meat for at least 28 days. Those who seek for something purely Icelandic won’t be disappointed, Steikhúsið also caters to those who want the best of Icelandic lamb and fish.

“Just Delicious!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Busy resturant, good atmosphere, went in Sat 16th Feb. I did call and book a table, glad I did. The menu is mouth watering, and the food delicious. Service was very good, wasn't waiting long. Great selection of wines, wine menu is an iPad! Steak was cooked to perfection, juicy delicious. Throroughly enjoyed it. Would love to go again. Bit pricey, we both had starter, main, bottle of wine which cost ~£120. Would reccomenf this place though.

“Perfect steaks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

The steaks at the Steak House are amazing, juicy and tasty. Ask for the 28 day hanged beef and the auk (Svartfugl) as a starter. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is good.

“Fantastic Steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Went here last night with my Wife. The food was excellent. The steak was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. The restaurant is small so booking recommended. Most if the locals seemed to be going for the lamb. I'll try that next time!
