Sjávarkjallarinn

2 Aöalstræti
Reykjavík, Iceland
TEL: 354-511-1212

Seamlessly fusing the old with the new, this Asian-influenced seafood restaurant occupies the oldest basement in Reykjavik. Typically jam-packed, the underground eatery displays old-school Icelandic memorabilia against a backdrop of 21st-century design. The menu at Sjávarkjallarinn (Seafood Cellar) changes quarterly and is heavy on fusion. Fish and shellfish dishes are enlivened by unexpected ingredients like pomegranate, coconut, and chili. The signature steamed lobster in foie-gras sauce is available daily, making for a popular can't-miss appetizer.   

Insider Tip:

Don't expect to land a table without a reservation. Sjávarkjallarinn is one of the most popular restaurants in the city.
