Food and Fun


Festivals MICE

A unique opportunity to experience Icelandic ingredients prepared by the world's leading chefs.

Food and fun is a festival of outstanding culinary skills and fresh natural ingredients, which is of course the ultimate recipe for food and fun. Mixed with Icelandic outdoor adventures and the world famous Reykjavik nightlife, Food and fun may just be the perfect reason to visit Reykjavik. The core element of this annual event involves world acclaimed chefs collaborating with Reykjavik's finest restaurants.

Each chef is assigned to one of the participating restaurants where they prepare a special menu crafted from Icelandic ingredients only. The menus are presented at all the restaurants for an entire week, and trust us, you want to try as many as you can. The chefs themselves are on site for three nights during the festival week. There is a second element of the festival which is the chef competition, taking place on the last day of the festival. They compete by making three courses, and of course they are only allowed to use Icelandic ingredients.

Reykjavik city has been the host of Food and Fun since the very beginning, and we believe that the city will exceed your expectations in more ways than one. Along with amazing culinary adventures you will find luxurious hotels, cutting edge technology, excellent infrastructure and easy means of transport. Exploring the capital is an adventure on it's own, whatever you may end up doing. Sightseeing, the great outdoors, relaxping spas and energizing nightlife are just a small part of the attraction.

Participating in Food and Fun this year are some of Reykjavik's finest restaurants, including Rub 23, Steikhúsið, VoxTapashúsið, Sjávargrillið, Kolabrautin, Höfnin, Grillmarkaðurinn, Grillið, Gallerí Hotel Holt, Fish Market, Fish Company, Dill Restaurant
