Imagine yourself in the hot sun of Barcelona, following the crowds down a step or two into the cool interior of a typical bodega or wine bar. Greeted by whitewashed walls, simple wooden tables and the big smile of the patron and his friendly young staff, you would be forgiven for not realizing that you are, in fact, in downtown Reykjavik.
Enter the world of Tapas Barinn, a place bursting with the delicious smells and flavours of traditional tapas along with the best of Icelandic tapas. Lining the wall are racks of fine wines and sparking glasses. And right in front of you, the hustle and bustle of tasty dishes being served up to a mixed and very loyal clientele.
From the moment you enter, you are immediately seduced by the aromas of garlic, olive oil, shellfish, secculent meats and cheese. The restaurant´s extensive menu contains over 70 dishes to suit all tasters, which can be ordered individually or as part of a main course. Alternatively, just relax and let the Master Chef select his favourites for you.
A must try is the famous Puffin with Blueberry-and Brennivín sauce. This stylish fusion of first-class service, fresh fish, seafood and Icelandic lamb has made Tapas Barinn one of the county´s most popular restaurants.
Check it out for yourself and see why.
