Cozy darkly lit place just off the main road. A few beers on tap, not the most interesting ones. Lots of bottles too, only Ocelandic breweries, also not overly interesting a selection. Prices are high even for Iceland. Service is fine, but not very friendly. A bit overrated of a place I’d say. Not one of the highlights for me.

This restaurant is located in the thick of downtown among tourist stops. The food is Icelandic in nature, to include whale and rotted shark and a fairly small menu. There is a house beer but no one there knew who brews it for them. The food was good and freshly prepared.

Medium sized place right in the center, just around the corner from Mikkeller Bar (the Ratebeer map doesn’t display the location accurately, we’ll try to fix that). Beer selection is small, and they have a house beer, although the server didn’t know who makes it. Extensive bottle list with representation from pretty much every brewery in Iceland. Food is tasty, and you can try whale (which we did), puffin and shark (which we did not). Worth a stop.

Nice place with live music and friendly atmosphere. Not the most beer selection, but quite good. Beer menu was not updated and several of the bottles I was trying to order was out of stock so in the end the waiter brought 4 bottles they actually had and I could choose from them. Most expensive of the beer places I visited on Iceland as it was 1600 ISK for a 33cl bottle of Borg. Still well worth a visit.

Kind of a tourist trap based on how much English I heard here compared to Micro Bar. It does have a fine selection of beers albeit at a premium 990 ISK for most, even the macros. Nice servers but you could tell they were sick of silly American tourists (except me of course!) They will try to serve you beer in a frozen mug, but tell them thanks but no thanks.

Best beer selection that I found in Iceland. The menu was extensive and had all the strange Icelandic food. I had the shark here. The service was good and fast.

Visited in March 2011. Nice place in central Reykajvik. I liked the ambiance, the place was homey. The selection was a good, around 25 beers from Iceland plus some from abroad. Prices were ok, at least compared with Sweden. Standard price was 950 for a bottle of domestic beer, thats about 8 USD. I liked the food, I ate a basket with a little of everything, including lamb, salmon and shark. Staff was friendly and service fast.
