Reykjavík Restaurants

Restaurants in Reykjavík

In just a short time Reykjavík has developed into the home of good food. “New Nordic Cuisine” has taken over the scene and found a truly receptive audience among the trendy small restaurants that have been established in recent years by up and coming chefs.

Please note that we strongly recommend booking restaurants directly. Most restaurants can be booked directly on the restaurant's website, where as some of the more upmarket restaurants require credit card to secure a table booking. Also, this way your client will be able to manage the bookings directly when they travel. If you want our assistance with table reservations, we request a service fee of 50 $/€ per day.
