For the best fresh fish for your home cooked dinner is the Fylgifiskar the fish shop to go to. When you are there I advise you to try their fish soup. It is one of the best one gets, not just in Iceland.

Nice place for a good fish lunch. I had the fish soup and it was excellent, my partner had the fish of the day and it was very good. The place was busy with lunch traffic.

We by chance found this amazing deli and restaurant. We had the best meal we had in a long time in England as well as Iceland! Really lovely fresh Icelandic cod wrapped in Parma ham, salad, new potatoes, barley risotto and a yummy sauce!

The great lunch dishes are the best food you could ever get for lunch, healthy and tasty. And the selection of fresh fish to take home for dinner is superb.

The food was amazing, fresh and tasty. I had the Asian fish soup and wanted to submerge myself in it. That's how good it was. The staff was courteous and friendly. A must try when in Reykjavik.
