I liked it a lot. The warm pretzels instead of bread before the meal was a very nice touch. Had the fish, it was tasty and cooked to my liking. The waiters did a excellent job and make you feel welcome.

The Food Cellar is a Grill & Cocktail bar situated in an 160 year old building in the center of Reykjavík. We like to think that Food is for your body and music is for your soul. Brasserie is the style of food, focusing on icelandic finest ingredients. The bar has good selection of fine cocktails put together by our outstanding bartenders.
