Incredible restaurant and experience. Icelandic Gourmet menu was excellent value for money- we were absolutely stuffed! I did not expect the food to be so beautifully presented. It tasted delicious. Service was fantastic- friendly and efficient. Would thoroughly recommend this to any tourist wanting a sample of Icelandic food. At the end we were given a description of all the... More

After reading other reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to visit this restaurant and share the 7 Course Icelandic Gourmet Feast. It was a great way of trying out Icelandic delicacies by sharing it as a light dinner. Really you must try this, all the courses were cooked fresh and brought out when ready so the staff were clearing the... More

My wife and I went and ordered the 7 course Icelandic Feast, which we split. The course was 7,990 kr, so not cheap, but we were satisfied after splitting it, so in that case the price was pretty reasonable. It's a good way to sample several things that aren't available elsewhere. Every course was very good, with obviously a lot... More

This is not the place to go for a cheap meal but on the other hand the food was of high quality and was a birthday treat for my friend. The atmosphere is warm and cozy the only thing I would say is that the staff seemed to be severely under pressure the night we were there. We counted 14... More

Outstanding dinner. Recommend the Icelandic Gourmet Feast for a tasting of Icelandic delicacies. It is enough for 2 people to share. Everything on the menu looked wonderful.

The place builds on Spanish tradition of TAPAS. The location is in the center of town. The service is fine and the atmosphere is relaxed.

Heard about Tapas Barinn from a blogger and decided to give it a try. Did the Icelandic feast meal. They explained every dish, the servers would ask what you think and are genuine. The atmosphere is Spanish, but the food was as Icelandic as it could get. I loved the atmosphere, the music not too loud and could definitely have... More

We came here for the roughly £65 taster menu each - 7 courses of well executed food, well presented & tasting lovely. The restaurant is well packed and very dark - found it hard to even read the menu. Service was fast and efficient - They have a big menu of cocktails, beers and wine - but of course you... More

Tapasbarinn is an extremely lively restaurant where Spanish tapas tradition meets the freshest Icelandic ingredients. It is located in a cellar at Vesturgata 3 in Reykjavik's central. The menu at Tapasbarinn offers over 50 different meet, fish and vegetable dishes so you can take your time and experiment various flavour combinations. A must try is the Icelandic gourmet feast which is a great way to taste the best of Icelandic produce in one meal. The restaurant has been open since the year 2000 and has become a popular place with the Icelandic crowd. It has the only kitchen in Reykjavík that is open 23:30 on weekdays and 01:00 on weekends. The breezy atmosphere and the Spanish effects in the decorations make Tapasbarinn ideal for an enjoyable evening, a true ray of sunshine in downtown Reykjavík.
