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.

Had the pleasure to dine at The Steak House this evening. The pork rib appetizer was absolutely delicious with an anise scent to it. The carpaccio was nothing like anything I've ever had before. Rather than thin slices, it was one piece of soft, tender steak with an amazing sauce. A must have if you like carpaccio.
The steaks are cooked to order and tenderly flavourful. We had the potato with Jerusalem artichokes and it was creamy melt in your mouth.
Extensive wine list to suit all taste and budgets. Well worth a visit.

We visited the restaurant three adults with two children. The service was good, the children was received with special menues where the could draw on. The adults received extra service when the sweet potatoes for the dish was not ready (we were the first guests it seemed so ok with os). We plan to go there on more time on our one week holiday!

We were looking forward for a nice steak and some decent side dishes.

For starters we ordered a mixed plate and asked explicitly to leave the whale of the plate.
They served the whale nonetheless. They did not even ask when taking the plate away why we left it.

The steaks themselves were good but not one of three were cooked to the point asked. Two were too much which we accepted as it was not too bad. One was not enough which we sent back.

Worst was the cheese baked corn which we could see how it dropped on the floor when taken out of the oven. Then picked up and being served. We complained, got told it did not happen, so we left it on the table. When we asked to talk to the responsible person, no one was round.

At the end we skipped dessert and left unhappy. All this happened within one and a half hours as we were asked when we got there to make sure we will be gone within 90 minutes as the table is reserved by then.

When we left half the restaurant was still empty although being told all has been reserved.
