We read about the lunch special and went especially for this. It lastst untill 2pm and is the catch of the day. This was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had in my life and very affordable for Iceland standards (1990 kroner). Nice staff, good ambience and right in the center of it all!

Snaps restaurant is in the hotel we stayed at and we looked at reviews, which were all good, and it was packed every time we walked by. You can’t make reservations after 6:30pm so we lucked out and got one at 6:30 or the 5 of us, 2 adults, 2 teenagers and a 4yr old. The food is excellent and... More

My fifth time at Snaps in a few months. Place was booming with customers and the funny thing is I got the same table for the fifth time. I had the Mussels and fries with a glass of red wine. Great taste and crispy fries. The service was nice and prompt. They served a dark ray bred with butter. The... More

Snaps has the best brunch in iceland. The egg benidict is delicious and the french toast is fantastic! Snaps does not only have a good brunch but the dinner is very good! If you are looking for a good resturant in the center of Reykjavik this is it!

delicious. i had the ribeye medium well- which is tricky bc people either burn it or it's too rare for me. it was perfect. i only gave it 4 stars bc it was quite a wait to be seated and for the food to come out. well worth it though!

First dinner in Iceland and loved the food there. Ordered Arctic fish, lamb chops and duck confit and they tasted great. Not a big fan of lamb but this dish changed my view. No doubt they are expensive but everything in Iceland is expensive... relatively compared to other places I tried in Iceland, they are not unreasonable. We shared the... More

Dined here first night after arriving in Iceland-it was connected to our hotel. Ate with my young child, which they cooked a grilled chicken and fries for her; my husband had rib eye; and I had catch of day which was ling fish. All were cooked to perfection! Plated beautifully, flavorful, and food was fresh. Very friendly and attentive wait... More

Stopped here for a drink before heading to hotel room. We had great seats at the bar with lots of friendly locals and ate mussels with our beers - spectacular

Nice to see so many locals eating here. Enjoyed my club sandwich after a long day on the tour bus. This restaurant also serves excellent breakfast for those staying at Hotel Odinsve next door.

My sis and I sat at the bar and had a fabulous culinary experience, while enjoying the vibrant local scene. Gotta say, the locals aren't all that friendly, maybe a bit reserved in their Icelandic way. But the food was superb. We enjoyed a multi-course meal with herring, white fish, and just amazing, well prepared dishes. Overall, the vibe at... More
