The Steakhouse - Steikhusid
The wine list comes in the form of an iPad, and features a wide selection of excellent wines to go with your steak.
The Steakhouse (Steikhúsið) is situated in the popular restaurant hub around the Reykjavik harbour. The interior of the place is heavy on greys and dark browns, the kitchen is open, the lighting is soft, the furniture is leather and above the bar is a diagram of a bull's body, explaining where each piece of meat comes from. It's the Steakhouse of your dreams.
Not only does the menu offer the best steaks Iceland has to offer, beef, lamb or horse (yes, really) but it also boasts some exciting and fairly unorthodox choices. Essentially, if you feel like sticking to the classics, nothing beats a rib eye steak with sauce Béarnaise, garlic roasted mushrooms and triple fried french fries. However, if you're feeling more adventurous, spring rolls with smoked guillemot, dates, Japanese mayo and bell pepper, or a sesame marinated kebab of monkfish and monkfish cheeks should do the trick.
The Mibrasa charcoal oven is the pride and joy of The Steakhouse. It's a unique oven that is designed to cook the perfect steak by mixing modern technology with ancient tradition. The Steakhouse has gotten some great reviews, particularly by travellers on the internet. For a night out with that special someone or a group of friends, you should give The Steakhouse a try. Especially if you like a view of the picturesque old harbour, a glass of good wine, burning candles and succulent and juicy Icelandic meat.
