Came here for a business dinner and it was a good location with great views and a good menu. Food was well prepared and presented and the choice of wines was good. Not expensive either.

Inside Reykjavik's Concert Hall, Kolabrautin offers magnificent views of the city and the harbor. The cuisine is tasteful and the wine catalog can cover every taste !!! the only negative is that in rush hour the staff is not enough so they are struggling to do their best and this is something notable.

A lovely dinner over-looking the harbor. If you are looking for a break from Icelandic cuisine, this is definitely a good choice.

We had an unbelievable dinner here our friends here. What a feast. This is hands down the best cod I have ever had in my life. It was so perfectly done. We opted for a 3 course meal. Grilled romaine, cod and rhubarb sorbet. We all agreed the cod was world class and the rhubarb sorbet, what a taste. Completely... More

We arrived early so we could quietly enjoy the unique beauty of the Harpa Concert Hall structure with its enchanting bee hive-like glass and steel walls, paired with Kolabrautin Ristorante's truly world class dishes and wine selections. A very special place with worthwhile, high end gourmet offerings.

We enjoyed our meal at Kolabrautin, the spacious restaurant upstairs at Harpa (the performing arts center), although some may not. It is a "foodie" sort of presentation with few ala carte choice, and it is expensive even by Icelandic standards, a function of the rent, I'm sure. There is no better view from any restaurant in Central Reykjavic, room is... More

We had a really fun meal here. The restaurant is located in the top floor of the spectacular Harpa Performing Arts Center on the harbor in the middle of Reykjavik. The food was terrific, especially the cod. The restaurant is new and they are making every effort to provide friendly, first-rate service. We even saw a colorful sunset towards the... More

Brilliant location. Generally very nice atmosphere. Staff were friendly, but seemed unsure about how to handle bar orders or when to come back (didn't see anyone for last half of the experience). The set course menus are fine for people who want to try that creation, but there was no need to be so limited in the a la carte... More

Very nice restaurant overlooking the harbour and city. The food was good and the vegetarian options especially interesting. The service was good but slow.
