Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a casual and gastronomically great meal. We went two nights in a row because we brought our adult kids on the second night. We ordered several things from the menu and they were all fantastic. It’s in a high end food hall so...you order and pay and then find your own table. It is prepared quite fast. The food is prepped and plated like an upscale restaurant and the value is good (for Iceland).More

Kröst is one of my favorite places in Reykjavík. The food never fails. The place is great for a date, meeting friends on a friday nught and it's perfect for the lunch spot downtown.

This visit was amazing! The food was so good. The bread, the vegetables and the fries were so crunchy and good. The perfect combination! The service was also amazing. So friendly and nice. If you go there our waitress's name is Dominika and she is...absolutely worth to look for!More

A mainstay in the Hlemmur food hall and the best place there for when considering food quality, portion size and prize. Perfect for either lunch or dinner. Seasonal options and nice atmosphere. I dine here regularly and I'm never disappointed. Pro tip if in Reykjavík...in early spring is to attend the yearly Spargelzeit at Kröst for delicious white asparagus.More

Our favorite meal in Iceland. This place seems unassuming as it’s in a food hall but the food and ambiance here was incredible. We got the pork belly, cod, and artic char all of them were very fresh, packed with flavor that complimented the fish,...and truly some of the best food we’ve had.More

Burger is a waste on money. Don’t get it. Get the grilled chicken or go to the taco place right next to it. I love my beef medium rare but this was just seared on both sides. Completely raw inside.

hi, you should be able to scroll down from the page with the burgers to see the rest of menu, including Salmon, Cod and Steak etc. Well worth a try and pretty good prices for Iceland
