Food was ok, T-bone steak was a little fatty but cooked to my liking. Service was ok and friendly. Restaurant quiet when all others we tried were packed and there was a definite lack of atmosphere. Iceland is expensive as most travellers will already know...More

As everyone says Iceland is very expensive for eating out and it's probably best to try not to think about the price unless you are on a tight budget. First thing is that before you go you should find a book of discount coupons at...More

A five story concrete building that once housed offices on the upper floors and a metalwork company on the ground floor, now is the home of restaurant The Steakhouse on the ground floor, the four floors above are now apartments. The old harbor area of Reykjavik has in the last couple of years, changed in to a real gem where various cuisines, museums and arts and crafts have replaced the metalworks and fisheries. The newest addition is STEIKHÚSIÐ, which simply means „The Steak House”. The name is a deliberately this simple and descriptive, the aim is to be the only steakhouse you think of after the first visit. The heart of Steikhúsið is the coal oven from Mibrasa and the soul is our own way of tendering meat for at least 28 days. Those who seek for something purely Icelandic won’t be disappointed, Steikhúsið also caters to those who want the best of Icelandic lamb and fish.
