We booked to come here for dinner after our daughters elopement, the staff were wonderful and very thoughtful. the food was sensational. they even let us add one more person when the photographer decided to come along too, the seven of us were seated in a lovely booth, which was quite private, the music was fabulous. Everything made for a very memorable evening. Thank you Matarkjallarinn, we loved dining with you. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I had the Icelandic discovery menu and every single dish was cooked well and beautifully presented. 1st experience of Puffin was excellent. Flavour of sauces we found too salty but otherwise great dishes and large portions!

We came here for a birthday meal and weren’t disappointed.
The dishes are divine and we washed the food down with a cocktail. We could recommend the liquorice cocktail... unusual but delicious!
We booked this restaurant in advance and it was very busy so would recommend you do the same. Pricey but worth it as a treat!

The restaurant has everything you'd want for a fantastic first or last meal in Iceland. Service is outstanding. Cocktails are exquisite. And the food is delicious. Plus, the ambiance is exceptional. Located in the basement of a an old building, the atmosphere is cozy, yet sophisticated. Some of our favorite dishes were the Puffin, Cod with hollandaise and bacon and shrimp skewers! It is a good choice for both couples or groups. Go here - you won't regret it.
