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.

After eating here on my visit in 2020, I knew I had to come back! Everything about the meal was delicious, and the staff was excellent! I had a group of 17, including 8 12-14 year olds, and service was excellent! Every part of our...meal was top-notch. I will never not eat here on trips to Reykjavík!More

Fantastic restaurant with great selection of food and drinks (have the rhubarb aperitif). Lots of great gluten free options and reasonably priced. Really nice atmosphere with happy staff making it a good experience. Would recommend booking to ensure a table and this is easy online.

We ate dinner at the Reykjavik Kitchen, and it was one of the highlights of our trip! I had the 3 course meal with the wine pairing and it was well worth it. We lucked out and got there early because we did not have...a reservation. We were able to sneak in and get one of the bar seats before the rush hit. Definitely make reservations if you want to go.More

Very good food. The lamb was just amazing. We got the last table. So maybe book before you go to be sure to have a table. Worth a visit

This was our absolute favourite meal in Reykjavik. We chose this restaurant for our anniversary meal after reading all the glowing reviews and we are so glad we did. My husband had the pasta which he said was fantastic and I had the beef tenderloin...which was the best beef I have eaten for a while and not just in Iceland. The flavours and the quality of food in both of our dishes were phenomenal and it really made the occasion so special. The staff even bought out a glass of Prosecco for both of us to celebrate our anniversary which was truly appreciated. We also throughly enjoyed our desserts which were the chocolate brownie and the skyr crème brûlée. This finished an an amazing meal perfectly. We also thought this meal was really well priced considering how much our other meals were. Thank you for such a lovely dinner and we would recommend it to anyone coming to Reykjavik and looking for fantastic fresh food 😊More

Great restaurant. We had the beef and lamb which was very good. Everything else we saw also looked good. Definitely worth a visit. Recommend booking as it was busy and a saw a few people being asked to wait or being turned away.

Wow! This was honestly the best meal I’ve ever had. Ever! I’m still thinking about it days later. Amazing food, brilliant staff and lovely surroundings. Not the cheapest meal but certainly worth every penny. I feel very privileged to have eaten here - thank you...for a wonderful experienceMore

Excellent all the way around. A quiet just off the main street location but walking distance within many of the hotels. Wife had the lamb and I had the Salmon. Service was prompt and friendly. No long wait for the food either. A gourmet meal...is all respects but standard pricing expectations for Iceland. (In Iceland you can expect to pay 1.3X to 2X for jsut about everything you are used to in the USA) The Salmon presentation, taste, service and portion was beyond expectations as was the lamb. The sauce for each was unique and very flavorful. You should not go away hungryMore

What a treat this restaurant was. Seems to be very popular (and not very large) so definitely make a reservation. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was very good and attentive. I would definitely come back!

The place was packed and stayed that way until about 9. Meals were so delicious as was the dessert. Plenty of drinks on offer. A must to visit. I shall be back.

Worthwhile booking online in advance, a busy popular venue near a number of hotels. We obtained a 6.30pm mealtime on a Sunday 3 days in advance - but there weren't really any other options. We had a main course and desert each, salmon and tenderloin...then sticky toffee pudding and creme brulee with a couple of beers each. About £150 for the 2 of us. Friendly service and some of the best food we've had in Reykjavik.More

We parked super close by in a street parking space. We never had any issues with finding parking spaces around town.
