In order to fully experience the place, one must not just use one’s eyes but as well all other senses including the sense of taste. Traveling in Europe may be expensive but there are some things worth splurging on at least once in a while. Here’s a list of some of the best gourmet restaurants in Iceland that are worth checking out:
Opened in 2009, Dill has been one of the gourmet restaurants in the country. It only allows 30 people to dine at a time so make sure to reserve a table before you visit this cozy place. One of the owners is a member of the national chefs and is constantly changing the menu depending on the availability of the ingredients. Some of the must-try dishes in the restaurant include the reindeer with blueberry sauce and their haddock with blue mussels.
Looking for a place to dine with the family? Cafe Maria is a great place to dine with your loved ones. Its menu consists of a variety of lamb, fish, pizza, and even crepes (those with sweet tooth will definitely love it!).
Just a 40-minute drive from Reykjavik, Fjöruborðið os the place to be if you’re craving for lobsters. Do not judge the restaurant from its exterior as what’s inside (and their menu) will take you by surprise. Its romantic vibe plus its fresh lobster dishes will definitely win your heart!
Another notable restaurant in Iceland that you shouldn’t miss is the Fish Market. To say that their dishes are palatable is an understatement. Using only Iceland’s fresh and finest ingredients, dining here will definitely be a treat.
For chilling out with friends, go and check out the Tapas Bar. Its combination of festive vibe, Latin music on the background, and mouthwatering dishes, eating in this bar-restaurant will never be counted as your typical night out.
The increasing number of world-class Icelandic chefs has paved way for more exciting dishes to try in Iceland. The best thing about dining in these restaurants is that there’s still the taste of authentic Icelandic food yet they never fail to surprise you with something new in their menu.
