An enduring tourist attraction, Fjörukráin is actually two restaurants in one. One is Fjaran, a seafood restaurant with a varied menu that doubles as a favourite Hafnarfjörður bar at nights. Next to Fjaran is Fjörugarðurinn, and for tourist groups they offer Viking banquets, complete with traditional Icelandic food, served in the Viking manner on large wooden trays. The décor is in a mock Viking style, all the way from the crossbeams on the ceiling to weapons and shields on the walls. In addition to this the staff sings, providing live music too. With a view over Hafnarfjörður harbour this is an ever-popular experience for visitors to Iceland.
Fiskfélagid or Fish Company is situated close to the harbor, in a heritage building dating back to 1884. As the name suggests, it specializes in seafood and incorporates globe-spanning flavors into its recipes. The dimly-lit spaces with flickering candles are ideal for romantic meals and there is plenty of artistic emphasis in the decor. The imposing brick walls, artworks, fireplace, chimes and photographs exhibited on the walls create a deluxe ambiance. The menu offers dishes like French sushi, salted cod, lamb and Arctic charr preparations, complemented by intercontinental red and white wines. There is also a selection of champagnes for special occasions. Prior reservations are recommended.
Kol is a seafood restaurant and bar which offers a range of salads, steaks, finger foods and desserts as well as an array of craft cocktails and wines which complement the dishes. Run by head chefs Kári Þorsteinsson and Einar Hjaltason, the open kitchen is an organized unit which is entertaining to watch. The space, as designed by Tom Dixon, is trendy and chic with two floors of cozy booths and leather furniture.
