Directions to Einar Ben

Located in the center of Reykjavik´s downtown area is Einar Ben, a fine dining Icelandic cuisine restaurant. The restaurant is named after one of Iceland´s most beloved poets and entrepreneurs. Einar Ben had ideas about Hydro Electric power plants to run railway's, heavy industry and on exporting electricity to the UK via a cable from Iceland to Scotland. Einar Ben even lived at one time in the building that today houses the restaurant.

The menu is traditional Icelandic where Einar Ben´s chefs utilize the fresh Icelandic produce. As you browse the menu it´s not unlikely that you will find yourself in trouble deciding what to order. To foreign visitors we recommend trying the Icelandic lamb. the Icelandic lamb has a wild taste as they live wild in the Icelandic country side before they are gathered each fall. Besides the lamb, it´s always worth it to try lobster dishes or local fish delicacies.

If you are a real gourmet person then the set menu is something for you. The set menu is where Einar Ben´s chefs use each day's best produce to create a five course feast for your table. Combine that with carefully selected wines to complement each dish and you might think you´ve died and gone to heaven.

In 2008, Einar Ben was featured on Food and Wine´s magazine´s 'Go to List' and was also awarded the prestige Wine Spectator wine awards. Einar Ben was the only restaurant who made it to both list but a total of 6 Icelandic restaurants were recognized by Food and Wine magazine and Wine Spectator.

Reservations are recommended at Einar Ben and can be done via phone or email. See contact details above. Please note that when booking by email, reservation must be re-confirmed no later than 2 days prior to day of booking to keep the reservation.
