We had diner here before the New Year's opera concert. I wasn't sure what to expect from the three-course concert menu. I had expected a fairly standard dining experience, but I was wrong. Each course was expertly prepared. The inventiveness of each dish was truly impressive. The chef combined tastes and textures in a really original and wholly successful way.... More

Went to Kolabrautin for a fancy New Years Party and got a 4 course vegan dinner. Each dish was more amazing than the next, grilled zuccini with truffles, purple cloves, roasted kale, broccolinis, strawberry ice cream ... Definitely one of the best meals that I've ever had.

We were there for lunch while we took in the fabulous Harpa Concert Hall. The service was efficient and quick. Staff were pleasant. We really enjoyed the food which had ingredients we hadn't seen before. Everything is pricey in Iceland, so it's one of those things it's hard to avoid.

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
