I cut into it my whale steak and it looked KILLER, but then I noticed that It was cooked BLUE, instead of well done. So I returned it and I think the chief had the HUMP. The man sitting next to me happened to be a PILOT then said that the steak is supposed to be served that way. So... More

My husband and I came here and the food was amazing, we opted for a set 3 course menu of puffin, whale and skry dessert. I felt a bit mean by eating puffin and whale but you can't go to another country and not try different food. They both were fantastic and would highly recommend this place.

This the first time I'm writing a review for a restaurant. I felt compelled to write about the food at the Hereford because this is the best meal I have ever had. My boyfriend and I decided to splurge and go for a nice night out. He ordered the puffin and whale three-course meal and I ordered the wild game... More

Looked OK and was given a recommendation so off we went. Both ordered T none but both undercooked by the chef. Waitress recovered the situation well but meat not rested properly. If you specialise in steak please cook and rest correctly as it's not cheap! Service was good.

We found this restaurant by accident when looking for a table on a busy Friday night in Reykjavik. The menu features Puffin, Whale and Reindeer as well as steaks and lamb. Couldn't fault the quality of the food and the service was prompt and unobtrusive. Would recommend to anyone looks for something Icelandic and different.

I know, I'm a terrible person, and we ordered the whale. But in my defense...it was DELICIOUS (and I don't plan on ordering whale ever again, now that I've had it once...and it really was delicious). The service was great, and the steaks were cooked on a grill in the dining room, so you could hear and smell the sizzle!

If you are feeling adventurous, you should definitely stop by the Hereford Steak House. With Puffin, Whale and Reindeer on the menu, it is certainly an experience. For the less adventurous, there is beef and lamb. The service is excellent and made for an unforgettable dining experience in Reykjavik.

O man how I loved to go there again and again and always ate the same steak number 10 on the menu. ,I always get hungry to think about the steak with the good chips and the pepper souse. I went there with my groups of tourists and they are very happy about everything and the fish they do looks... More
