“Great takeout”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Another vote for this place. I usually stay at an apartment/hotel nearby whenever I visit Reykjavik and this is my go-to place if I don't feel like cooking.

“Best "take home and cook yourself" fish dishes in Reykjavik”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

This place is amazing, fresh fish every day and really good quality of recipes. You buy it by the kilo take it home and in 17. min. in the oven or on a pan you have a beautiful meal. They serve lunch as well which we tryed and was great as well.

“It is Fresh & Friendly”
Reviewed August 23, 2010

Everytime I visit my country, Fylgifiskar becomes my favorite lunch hang out, The food is prepared with care, It has robust flavors and is as fresh as it gets.
It is like catching a rare find in an Ocean that is full of unhealthy junkfood.
Keep it up.

Reviewed August 21, 2008

The fish is as fresh as you're likely to find anywhere in town - and that's saying something in Iceland - but's it's not really a restaurant, it's a store with a few tables. Great for a quick lunch - even better to buy and cook at home.
