Description: A five story concrete building that once housed offices on the upper floors and a metalwork company on the ground floor, now is the home of restaurant The Steakhouse on the ground floor, the four floors above are now apartments. The old harbor area of Reykjavik has in the last couple of years, changed in to a real gem where various cuisines, museums and arts and crafts have replaced the metalworks and fisheries. The newest addition is STEIKHÚSIÐ, which simply means „The Steak House”. The name is a deliberately this simple and descriptive, the aim is to be the only steakhouse you think of after the first visit. The heart of Steikhúsið is the coal oven from Mibrasa and the soul is our own way of tendering meat for at least 28 days. Those who seek for something purely Icelandic won’t be disappointed, Steikhúsið also caters to those who want the best of Icelandic lamb and fish.

Good service, good cocktails (and beer), good starters and main. The triple dipped chips we're excellent. The lamb and beef steaks wonderful. We'll go back there.

As a party of 7 we ate here on New Year's Eve, having booked from London in October . The starter was interesting with a sample of delicately prepared Minke Whale, Puffin, Guillimot and Salmon! As a 'one off' experience, great, but I won't be trying these delicasies again! I had the steak for main course, which was disapointing; I was expecting excellence and just got 'good'. Others in our party had the lamb or fish dish and reported these as excellent. The dessert made up for everything as it was absolutely scrumptious, skyre and licourice. All in all an excellent meal in a great location with good house wine to wash it all down.

Great place to visit in good location downtown Reykjavik. The menu looks exciting. The starters which we tried were great and highly recommended but the steak I had (T-bone) failed to live up to my full expectations and could be improved (too thin and unevenly cooked). The service was very, very good and their winelist is impressive. Overall a good visit and I will go there again to try another item from their steak menu.

Very good steaks. They served the the steaks with both red wine sauce and bearnaise. Only one thing were a bit strange and that was the fried tempura vegetables that was served as a side dish??? Japanese Tempura and steak together did not work for me. Anyway a Great restaurant with good food at reasonable prices.
