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.

Reviewed February 4, 2014

lovely restaurant, very friendly staff, food was excellent, presentation was great, great choice of drinks, didn't think it was expensive, no more than you would pay for a steak meal in a nice restaurant in England.

“They did the right thing”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

4 of us had our last dinner here. It is a small, intimate restraint. My husband and I both had the rib eye steak. Mine was wonderful. It was cooked to my liking and had a fabulous flavor -without a sauce. My husbands steak was very grissled. When we brought to their attention, they immediately removed the entire charge from the bill. Appropriate and nice. The salad was crisp and very yummy. I had the scalloped potatoes with Jerusalem artichokes. It also was very good.

“Best meal ever!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

We ate at the Steak House during our three night stay in Reykjavik and the food was fantastic. Although it was quite expensive (as most restaurants in Iceland are) it was definitely worth the money.

We both had steak which was cooked to perfection. The only criticism we had was that our meal felt a bit rushed.

“Stunning Food But a bit of a wait!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We had food here and had a really stunning meal with beautiful flavour. The wait was a bit long but the food was so good so you don't mind waiting then. It felt a bit cramped with the tables and it was really dark, bit to dark for me. But would recommend it to anyone looking for a great steak, in there its all about the meat.
