It includes restaurants that are the most desired, most delicious, and most secret in all of Iceland. Feel free to visit any of these restaurants or dining spots in Iceland, but don't share them with anyone, because it will then become impossible to get a meal there!
Snapps (Schnapps): French bistro in a casual atmosphere. The croque monsieur is The Professor's fave.
Rossopomodoro (Italian): Good, solid Italian food with friendly service. Inexpensive by Iceland standards.
Laugavegi 40a - 101 Reykjavík
Café Solon: Under new ownership and centrally located, expect a good burger here.
Duck & Rose: In the middle of the city, the Duck features, well, duck. Also serving Italian, beef, fish, and something for everyone.
Reykjavik Fish Restaurant: The best in Fish & Chips and not too expensive.
Sjavargrillo (The Seafood Grill): A bit on the eclectic side, expect some creative fish dishes, including lobster, here.
Apotek : Elegant and extensive, this is the perfect place for a celebration.
Grillmarkaðurinn (The Grillmarket): Small dishes, big dishes. This is the place for puffin or whale.
Baejarins Beztu Pylsur: By far, the most well-known dining spot in Iceland. It's a celebrity hot-dog stand. The best hot dogs in Iceland.
