As there are many different retaurants in Reykjavik to choose from, I generally try as many as I can when I vacation in Iceland. The meal I had here was very good. The starter was scallops with fried kale and peas(not something I had before)...More

We dropped in on our last evening in Reykjavik and wondered whether we'd made the right choice, with just a few tables and only one other couple. However, service was excellent and we were brought some very good bread to nibble before the meal arrived....More

We came here for their lunch which included fresh bread with butter that was set on a lava rock (very cute) a salad, soup, and a main course. The salad was well presented and fresh, I believe they use organic ingredients. The soup was AMAZING....More

Isafold is an exciting restaurant located in a little side street from Laugavegur, the main shopping street in Reykjavík. The restaurant is stylish and smart but at the same time quite casual making the atmosphere at the restaurant relaxed and welcoming. The selection of ingredients for the menu is carefully chosen by the head chef and wherever possible the ingredients are organic and socially responsible products. All the greens are sourced from local greenhouses and the meat is 100% Icelandic. The bar area at Ísafold offers the opportunity to relax with a drink or two from an impressive selection of cocktails, wines and whiskey either before or after dinner. A visit to Isafold is really worth the try. Welcome.
