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.

Very good steaks. They served the the steaks with both red wine sauce and bearnaise. Only one thing were a bit strange and that was the fried tempura vegetables that was served as a side dish??? Japanese Tempura and steak together did not work for me. Anyway a Great restaurant with good food at reasonable prices.

My husband & I visited the restaurant on a recent trip to Reykjavik, after reading the positive reviews listed on this site. We were not disappointed!!!

We decided on a whim to see if they could accomodate us on a Saturday night before the influx of diners. Fortunately, they sat us right away but did mention that the table was reserved an hour later.

We promptly placed an order and less than 20 minutes later, dinner arrived at our table. We both ordered the tenderloin steaks - I opted for the fries which came in a very cute basket, and my husband ordered the baked potato. The steaks were cooked to perfection and just melted in your mouth. Probably one of the top 5 steakhouses that I have visited!

The restaurant's decor is also quite beautiful. Modern rustic, with a touch of candelight - just simply gorgeous & a great restaurant for date-night. Would love to go again!
