“Simply the best in Reykjavik”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

My wife and I tried the 7 course tasting menu, and it was simply superb. It was a fabolous gourmet travel through authentic icelandic cousine. Interesting combinations of wine and beer perfectly matched with the food. I really recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a gourmet experience at a reasonable price. Enjoy :-)

“Great place for fine dining”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Grillið is located at the top floor of the Radison Blue Hotel, Hótel Saga. It's been there for ages, and doesn't chance much, thankfully. The place has always been at the forefront in Icelandic cuisine, and many of the countries best chefs have started their careers there. The wine list is impressive, the interiors have started to become retro-chic, but always very clean and fresh, and the view are unbeatable.

“Can be considered as gastronomic”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

First restaurant done when arriving in Reykjavik... Ok I stood at the corresponding hotel. But what a good surprise! The 7 courses tasting menu was top! And facing the city of Reykjavik while eating... What could be more pleasant than this first evening? Nice plate presentation, very tasty, really fresh products and perfectly cooked.

“Excellent service, lovely food and amazing location”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

Just been for the taster menu at the restaurant at the top of Radisson Saga hotel where we are staying. Fabulous food, helpful and discreet staff, and a great, if slightly retro setting with fantastic views. Prices are nothing like as pricey as they obviously once were, post-crash, and compared to the UK equivalent, not at all. Altogether a great fine dining experience.
