Eating Out in Iceland
Iceland now boasts some of the best restaurants in the World. In Reykjavik especially, there are many fine dining establishments where the standard of food and service is very high indeed. Prices are generally higher in Iceland but the quality and gastronomic experience can be mind-blowingly good which makes eating out a must-do part of any trip. It is still possible to find places which serve tradtional Icelandic food, but the trend is to combine fresh Icelandic ingredients with more international styles to produce mouth-watering culinary combinations. No-one should leave Iceland without trying some fresh Arctic fish or gamey Icelandic lamb to see the difference.
The pages are divided geographically by area. There are several categories of restaurants including ethnic, fast food, traditional Icelandic, etc. Diverse as they are, however, they all have one common feature: fresh, high quality, Icelandic ingredients.
While they are of course appreciated, tips are not obligatory in Icelandic restaurants.
Most of the restaurants listed have their own featured page on our site. To find out more about these, either look for their logo or click on their listing in the yellow box.
