Fish Company (Fiskfelagid)

Grófin, Reykjavík, Iceland


See Website

Set in an historic building from 1884, the Fish Company is known for its charming atmosphere and seriously innovative food. The stone cellar dining room has a cozy feeling with whimsical modern touches like copper lanterns that resemble organ pipes and windows panes from a Lutheran church above the bar (tables are set out on the terrace in the summer as well). The owner and chef Larus Gunnar celebrates Icelandic ingredients and a global sensibility with each course named after a different country, using its key ingredient to signify its inspiration (the Japan Rice starter, for instance, is mixed sushi). Fiji Coconut is a boiled fish soup with langoustine, grilled monkfish, coconut jelly and seaweed. France Truffle is a poached egg served in a potato nest with truffle puree, green asparagus and fried wild mushrooms. Make sure to save room for the desserts, including the Egypt Blood Orange, a pyramid of white chocolate and blood orange parfait served with salt caramel, orange leaf and caramel sand.
