3 Frakkar

14 Baldursgata
Reykjavik, Iceland
TEL: 354-552-3939

This family-run business in old Reykjavik Central was opened by chef Úlfar Eysteinsson in 1989. Popular with locals and unabashedly Icelandic, 3 Frakkar accommodates just 44 diners in its cozy, old-school dining room enlivened by mounted fish and stuffed rams' heads on the walls. The restaurant serves up popular indigenous dishes including salted cod, fried fish-chins, and hashed fish with black bread. More exotic specialties include whale pepper steak washed down with potent shots of a local hooch called Black Death.

Insider Tip:

Cozy up to the bar and eavesdrop on the locals, and you'll likely hear a whaling tale or two.
