MAR Restaurant is a brand new restaurant that just opened by Reykjavík harbor, on December 7th 2012 to be exact! The interior was designed by HAF by Hafsteinn Júlíusson and the tableware by the ceramic artist Guðný Hafsteinsdóttir. Interestingly in the entrance of the restaurant there is a really neat and cosy design boutique, Mýrin that sells lovely icelandic design.
A new steakhouse just opened in Reykjavík a few weeks ago called the simple name Steikhúsið – The Steak House, in Tryggvagata 4, 101 Reykjavík, making it the newest steakhouse in Reykjavík and perhaps the newest restaurant in Reykjavík also.
We were looking forward to dine there because we love to try something new and also there is a lack of decent steakhouses in Reykjavík so a new steak house is a welcome addition to the restaurant scene in Reykjavík.
Sjávargrillið – Seafood Grill is a relatively new restaurant in Reykjavík, Iceland. Opened in 2011 but experienced a major fire in January 2012 but was quickly re-opened after that. This restaurant is run by Gústav Axel Gunnlaugsson, chef of the year in 2010 and Master Chef Lárus Gunnar Jónasson and currently ranks number one in Iceland on TripAdvisor.com with over 200 reviews in spite of having only been open for about two years.
Located in Stokkseyri, Iceland, a small fishing village of roughly 600 inhabitants, the Fjöruborðið Restaurant was originally founded as a café in the late 80’s. Since its placement on the shore of the Atlantic ocean it drew its name “Við Fjöruborðið” which roughly translates to “At the seashore”.
Fjöruborðið was ran for about three years as a café at which time they started serving lobster from the lobster processing plant next door and gradually turning the café with homemade lobster soup and cakes into a successful restaurant that can seat up to 240 guests at a time.
