I went to this place the other day and they know how to make a good meal. This Reykjavik Seafood Restaurant is in a new old house that is this house was moved from another location and renewed all over. They are in the cellar (they have a elevator) and I got a very cozy feeling when I came in, a lot of candles and servants everywhere. The food was exceptional. I am looking forward on going back.

Geysir Bar in Reykjavik

Geysir Bistro & Bar
They are located down town in the same house as tourist information. Inside this Reykjavik Seafood Restaurant it is very nice and pleasant. I went with a group of people 10 people and everybody got a different thing to eat. Some got starter but all got the main dish and others got dessert.

Is a newly opened and is one of great Reykjavik Seafood Restaurants. They are situated near the harbor, a bit out of the way but the good thing is that they offer a pickup service for dinner.
