Nice restaurant in the centre of Reykjavik. I guess this is the spot if you look for puffin breast, seal or whale steak. Or fermented shark, a treat for true connoisseurs. Tap selection on our visit in July 2017 was 10 beers from Viking, Einstök, Kaldi and the house beer brewed by Viking. More bottles to supplement the taps. Nice wooden interior that reminds me of an old fashioned Danish bodega - just without the alcoholics and the sickening cigarette odour. Usual heart attack prices as elsewhere for everything in Iceland. Recommended for the ehhh... unique.. food experiences.

Top Restaurant und Bar in Reykjavik. Ca 12 Biere vom Fass. Dazu unzählige Flaschenbiere. Alle aus Island! Im Sommer eine extra Saison Karte mit Spezialbieren. Preise sind für Island zivieler. Ca 1100 Kronen. Essen ist auch lecker und sehr isländisch (ua Wal, Rentier, Papagaientaucher...). Hingehen!

Nice looking restaurant in downtown Reykjavik. Visited on Culture Night, the place was packed ofcourse but I bet it’s usually more quiet. Selection is good, but also consists of some boring macro beers. The bottle list is better. Because it was so busy I had only two beers here.

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.
