The Fish Market was a recommendation from the Lights hotel staff. We had decided late and only were able to get a 6pm (or 9pm) reservation. The seafood was excellent- lobster soup and langoustines. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu/Icelandic recommendations. This was our last meal before leaving and was excellent way to end the trip. Although we did not have small children, one could observe from the attention that the family next to us with two smaller children received that families including those with small children would be quite comfortable here.

We had the taster menu at the Fish Market and it was fabulous. The food was out of this world, presentation was stunning and the service and friendliness of the staff was excellent. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Reykjavik!

We dined at Fiskmarkadurinn in February 2014. We decided to go all out and indulged in the chef's tasting menu.

Our server was very helpful and made excellent suggestions tailored to us. Every course was delectable and special. The flavors are very authentic and new at the same time, sort of standard pan Asian with a special Icelandic twist, with an herb, a sauce, a protein. The care with which the food was prepared, and then arranged on the plate, was wonderful. The fish and produce are very, very fresh. There was one course in the chef's tasting menu that did seem like a bit of the cost saver for the chef (iceberg lettuce salad?) but despite that, the thing tasted good. We loved the sashimi (char? salmon?) so much, we added a double order of it to our dinner.

The cost of dining in Iceland is not cheap. I believe this dinner cost us approximately 200$US (including drinks). But because of the quality of the ingredients, and the care with which the chef prepared the food, we believe there is a real value in dining at Fiskmarkadurinn. I believe that Americans will be surprised at the incredibly high quality of the food being prepared and served in Iceland.

An excellent service provided in such a well decorative dining place. The lobster soup is so creamy and yummy, fresh fish and green salad are so delicious. The bread with smoked salt with butter is like a prefect match. This was what an amazing dining experience in Iceland.
