MAR Seafood Restaurant


Seafood Icelandic

Walk along from Harpa Concert hall to the Old Harbour and enjoy the seaside view, stopping along the way at Mar for dinner or nightcap. It's a wonderful way to spend an evening.

Mar is an old Icelandic word for the ocean, and MAR restaurant is dedicated to paying tribute to the sea around us. Situated at the old harbour in the centre of Reykjavík, the restaurant offerst spectacular views which meld perfectly with the fresh and innovative seafood cuisine on your table.

This high-class restaurant specialises in the delicacy that is Icelandic seafood- prepared in a South-American or southern European style. Their main focus is on fish and other nuggets of goodness from the sea, but they also offer a wide variety of other gourmet choices for the seafood-averse. You'll be sure to find examples of the delectable Icelandic lamb  in addition to vegetarian options, soups, salads and desserts.

MAR operates on the principle that delicious food tastes even better if it's presented in a beautiful way, so all the courses are designed in an elegant cuisine nouvelle fashion. Combine the meal with a whale watching tour (which sail from the same harbour) for a discount on your meal(!)

The restaurant is decorated in an elegant Scandinavian minimalist, slightly rustic, style, for that authentic old-harbour feel. The harbour is right by the old town, which is now the city center, just a stone's throw away from Laugavegur, the main shopping street.
