Description: TapasBarinn is an extremely lively restaurant where Spanish tapas tradition meets the freshest Icelandic ingredients. It is located in a cellar at Vesturgata 3 in Reykjavik's central. The menu at TapasBarinn offers over 50 different meat, fish and vegetable dishes so you can take your time and experiment various flavour combinations. A must try is the Icelandic gourmet feast which is a great way to taste the best of Icelandic produce in one meal. The restaurant has been open since the year 2000 and has become a local favourite. It has the only kitchen in Reykjavík that is open 23:30 on weekdays and 01:00 on weekends. The breezy atmosphere and the Spanish effects in the decorations make TapasBarinn ideal for an enjoyable evening, a true ray of sunshine in downtown Reykjavík.

Great fun and atmosphere, good and attentive service. The Icelandic menu was delicious, and the passion fruit sangria also great

If u are looking for good tapas this is not the place to go to.. The service and the atmosphere was good but the food was quite tasteless. Considering the bill, u can spend the same money and get much better quality at a lot of other places

I had the Icelandic Feast menu with six tapas and a dram of vodka. All the dishes were of top quality and I had a great time. I had for example cured puffin meat (I know, poor bird), whale, lamb on a skewer and salmon. I had not booked a table so I had to wait for 15 minutes or so in the bar.

Thank Ugurd

We had been excited to eat at Tapas Barinn on our recent trip from the US to Reykavik, but we were disappointed. The atmosphere was ok , the service slow but the food was mediocre and over-priced. Scallops in bacon and fried lobster were good but the tapas spears including the beef teriyaki and lamb in plum sauce were tough and the beef in particular, not very tasty. We would not go back.

We had great tapas. After an exhausting day hiking this was a great place to relax. Food was wonderful, and the restaurant has a lovely outdoor deck. The staff was very knowledgable and very nice. We had escargot, lamb, shrimp, all delish. Don't expect it to be like Spain, it is Iceland, after all.
