Great Service. The restaurant was pretty empty when visited around 2pm. It is located just off the main road, in the Downtown AreaPrices were pretty reasonable for Iceland. The food was delicious and they were able to cater tour dietary requirements. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Reykjavik.

Jómfrúin (The Virgin) is a friendly restaurant specialising in open Danish sandwiches with a wide variety of toppings. The restaurant also offers Danish-style home-cooked dishes. On Saturday afternoons in the summer, there are jazz concerts on the outdoor patio area.

Went for Sunday lunch and were joined by many locals which is always a great sign. The open sandwiches are exceptionally fresh and made with excellent ingredients. Also try the hot dishes especially the pork with absolutely brilliant crackling which is not easy to do. It will take you at least 5 minutes by the way to read the extensive... More

The open-faced sandwiches at Jomfruin are bigger than their Danish counterparts, but equally inventive and tasty. Dessert was delicious as well.

I had the pleasure to go to Jómfrúin on a mid saturday. Although busy we had a table, i ordered the H C Andersen open faced sandwidch wich was really nice. A pint of christmas lager and a traditional danish christmas snaps rounded up the meal. Really happy when i left, thoroughly recommended. Service was professional and quick.

Thank Icelanderer
