Last minute reservation available for party of 8. Steaks were well cooked, tender and tasty. Like all restaurants in Iceland a bit more expensive than in the USA but not too bad considering tax and service are included in the price. A nice change from...More

Our taxi driver from the airport, Walli, recommended The Steak House (Steikhusid), and we were lucky he did. After a few days, I was tired of fish dishes -- though they were delicious -- and I was having a major primal urge for a steak....More

We chose the Steakhouse Delight menu and it was a very tasteful three courses dinner, made off excellent ingredients. "But" extremely large portions, we did not manage to finish everything. Yummie!

I went with a friend of mine to a concert at Harpa. On a whim, we decided to get something to eat beforehand. This place is within short walking distance to Harpa and we were able to reserve a table with an hours notice. We...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.
