Tucked behind a busy street in Reykjavik, The Grill Market provides a fresh representation of modern Icelandic tastes. The atmosphere is very lively and the service friendly. The menu offers an extensive selection of seafood and traditional meats to choose from. A great place for a relaxing night out.
A really exceptional experience! Dill was the best restaurant we visited in Reykjavik! The setting of the restaurant is similar to Atera or Chef's table at Brooklyn fare in New York. The chef is working in a central kitchen area, where he puts the finishing touches on his courses. Chef Gunnar Karl Gislason is faithful to traditional Icelandic tastes, but he delivers them with masterful modern cooking. He brilliantly combines flavors, textures, smells, and images to lead the guest in a trip through Icelandic land and sea. The freshest ingredients are used seasonally for his creations. He is a firm believer in using local purveyors, as he has demonstrated in his recent book. Dill is definitely creating its own imprint, giving Iceland a prominent position in the growing movement of the new Nordic cuisine! Deserts were very light but created a nice balance after the savory part of the menu. Service is amazing, with particular attention to detail. The chef often presents the food himself in an intimate experience. Definitely worth a trip to Reykjavik for a visit here!
Fish Market is housed in one of the central Reykjavík’s oldest buildings. Chef Hrefna Rósa Sætran of the Icelandic National Culinary team has designed a menu using the freshest fish and meat of the season, cooking it simply in modern style. Dishes are based on Icelandic tastes, and some have a strong Asian influence. Most ingredients come directly from the farmers. Service is friendly and welcoming. The sweet part of the menu is light and playful. Overall a great experience!
