Restaurant Reykjavik



The fish buffet that starts every night at 6:00pm is the perfect way to sample the best of Icelandic seafood

Wander downtown, near the harbour, and you cannot miss the distinctive yellow frontage of Restaurant Reykjavík. Bright and sunny, it's a great spot to eat, drink, and watch the world go by. Evenings here are a cosy affair, with quality musicians performing regularly, while during the day you'll find tasty lunch options that offer great value.

This beautiful building dates back to the 1860s. The unofficial gateway to the city, it has always been a bustling scene of fishermen, traders and travellers. Today, a delicious menu includes the acclaimed seafood buffet (from 6pm). Hugely popular amongst tourists and locals, it features fresh Icelandic seafood in all its glory. Fishy mains include Bacalao - traditional salted cod with garlic-fried potatoes - and the heavenly salmon and scallop duet with a touch of fennel. Tender beef and lamb creations are also a big hit, along with the wonderful 'Tasting Menu'.

Besides from being a spectacular restaurant, Restaurant Reykjavik specializes in hosting groups of all sizes and can offer great private areas for all occasions. They also have a variety of group menus so that everyone can find something to their liking.

If you find yourself in Reykjavik around Christmas or New Year's you should check out the restaurants buffet offers that run during the holidays.
