“One of our best meal ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

My boyfriend and I booked a table at Fiskmarkaðurinn after a friend who has been in Iceland in 2013 recommended it to us. We didn't regret any of the 37 600 krona it costed for the tasting menu & wine pairing. Our waitresses were effective, nice and not intrusive. The wine kept being poured. But the highlight was of course the food. The tasting menu is a progression of superb dishes that culminate in a dessert plate out of this world. The only plate that I would have removed was the lamb fillet. Not because it wasn't good - it was really excellent and perfectly done - but because we would have liked to stay with fish plates only. I will remember for a long time the scallop nigiri, the whale, the cod... well, everything. When I'm back in Iceland, I will book there again for sure.

“last dinner in Iceland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

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!
