Matarkjallarinn is one of Reykjavík’s high-end restaurants. It’s highly rated on TripAdvisor and you’d be hard-pressed to find an item on the menu that isn’t tip-top.
The cuisine is clearly Icelandic but with a very creative modern twists and consisting mainly of Icelandic meat & seafood.Their fisherman’s fish soup is a standout, some would say worlds away from any other fish soup in Reykjavík. In terms of the seafood, the haddock and scallops are butter soft. Go in for a light but filling lunch of fish of the day for a reasonable prize
