Directions to Argentina Steakhouse
Argentina Steakhouse has been a favorite with the locals since 1989. Their specialty is grilling meat and fish of all kinds Argentinian-style over wooden coals. The classic menu at Argentina Steakhouse has remained unchanged from the beginning, and they only serve Icelandic beef of superior quality. The Icelandic ox is smaller than other breeds, and the body develops slowly, making the muscles finer and giving more time for fat to build up. Fat is the secret to a perfectly grilled steak, so it turns out succulent and tender. If you want to try it for yourself, we recommend the beef rump steak served with café du Paris butter, wok vegetable, and a baked potato.
The main focus of the restaurant is steaks but it also offers a wide selection of seafood as well as the famous Icelandic lamb, which is almost organic by nature as they are not fed grain or given any hormones. Instead, they roam free in the wilderness of Iceland while they wait to get on your plate. Try the lamb fillet with wok vegetables and a baked potato, you won't be disappointed.
As soon as you walk in through the wooden paneled passageway to the restaurant, you'll notice the southern atmosphere. Don't worry about the restaurant's location in Reykjavík, you'll be kept warm by the sizzling fire in the fireplace.
The wine menu is quite extensive and features a wide selection of red, white and sparkling wines. Don't forget to take a look at the dessert menu at the end of your meal, you won't be able to resist the selection.
The soothing and comfortable atmosphere combined with a dining experience like no other make Argentina Steakhouse perfect for an evening of fine dining in Reykjavik city.
