Being a native Icelandic foodie, I couldn't help noticing recently that TripAdvisor's restaurant rankings for Reykjavik are pretty bad. So, I figured I would share my alternative top ten list of restaurants in Reykjavik.
On the flipside, this is TripAdvisor's top 10 list of restaurants in Iceland (pulled on Feb 24, 2018). Interestingly only three of my top ten restaurants in Reykjavik make it to their list.
Also, if you are looking for more great spots for foodies in Reykjavik I wrote up a list of my top 5 coffee shops for working in Reykjavik . Additionally, I also highly recommend this article about bakeries in Reykjavik and try some traditional local food which you can find in multiple places in the city. By creating your own Wanderlist on Travelade, you can easily keep track of all the things you've read so far about Iceland.
Note: My original version of this top restaurant in Reykjavik list was published on Feb 7th, 2017 and the list was updated on Feb 24th 2018. Please also note that this list represents my personal view of the local restaurant scene.
The best travel recommendations come from locals. Check out these Wanderguides from Iceland by locals sharing their travel tips and hidden gems.
