This sparkly, hip restaurant called Iðnó is located in an old theatre, and still functions as such, offering some of the best shows on offer in Reykjavík. Overlooking the pond, complete with birds and baby birds, this is the place for an idyllic view of the old city center. To be particularly recommended for late dinners. The menu is interesting, with a variety of Icelandic seafood and lamb dishes and some international main courses. The ground floor has a coffee house/bar and a little veranda, where guests can enjoy the quacking birdlife and feed hungry ducks and elegant swans with breadcrumbs.
With a capacity of about 350, this spacious restaurant takes you back to the historical Viking Era and makes your visit a memorable one. Dining was never so dramatic before - traditional cuisine is served in old Viking-style trays, there's a dance performance every Saturday and a guest also gets crowned as an 'Honorary Viking' by the head chef. Dishes, such as Fried Salted Cod with olives and garlic are worth a try. But more than the food, it is the atmosphere that will impress you.
This friendly, neighborhood pub is an ideal place to hang out at after catching an enchanting play at the Reykjavík Municipal Theatre. Chat up old friends as you sip on your favorite drinks and take in the cozy aura of the place. The restaurant is frequented by theater goers and tourists alike, owing to its versatile à la carte menu and enticing interiors. You can taste the best of cheese-layered pastas, vegetable pizzas, heart-warming soups and succulent meat dishes as you take in the elegant, woody décor of this eatery. Weekends see a flurry of activity with live music featuring prominently on the agenda and enthralling patrons with its vivacity and variety. You can also host private events, conferences and corporate dos at this venue. Once you visit this cordial café, you will want to keep coming back for more! Check website for more details.
