As another reviewer pointed out, locals don't eat here. I ate here on my very first night in Reykjavik and as I wasn't yet accustomed to Icelandic prices, got quite the shock. However the food was decent, I had a nice chicken club sandwich. The waitress was very friendly and welcoming, something you will find in nearly all Icelandic establishments.

Right next door, is the far superior Tapas Barinn, probably my favourite spot to eat in Reykjavik.

Smorgsboard was just as advertised - nothing fancy and an average portion. Nice spacious venue with a big picture window view of the geyers - main reason for this location. So basically served just as it said on the board. Other menu items looked very interesting too - so this is certainly a place to consider for your Golden Circle lunch stop.

Excellent, freshly, locally sourced food, served in a relaxed and cosy environment. There is a very good selection of worldwide cuisine, including many Icelandic specialities. Staff are extremely friendly, and knowledgable. I can recommend the Icelandic Skyr cake for dessert!

I can't really fault it, will dine here every time I'm in Reykjavik - highly recommended.

We enjoyed our first evening meal here so much that we were back again two evenings later to sample the Icelandic lobster. The Icelandic lamb and the fish were also beautifully cooked and presented and and while eating out in Reyjavik is not cheap Geysir offers good value for such excellent quality food.
