This is not a spelling mis-steak. This place is over the moon! My steak was so well cooked (maybe prepared is a better word, because I like it rare) that I was in heaven with every bite! Lovely restaurant with a nice ambience. I had...More

Beautiful food and service - lovely atmosphere and the waitress was friendly and helpful. Be aware that the prices are pretty steep - as is everywhere in Iceland.

A five story concrete building that once housed offices on the upper floors and a metalwork company on the ground floor, now is the home of restaurant The Steakhouse on the ground floor, the four floors above are now apartments. The old harbor area of Reykjavik has in the last couple of years, changed in to a real gem where various cuisines, museums and arts and crafts have replaced the metalworks and fisheries. The newest addition is STEIKHÚSIÐ, which simply means „The Steak House”. The name is a deliberately this simple and descriptive, the aim is to be the only steakhouse you think of after the first visit. The heart of Steikhúsið is the coal oven from Mibrasa and the soul is our own way of tendering meat for at least 28 days. Those who seek for something purely Icelandic won’t be disappointed, Steikhúsið also caters to those who want the best of Icelandic lamb and fish.
