Top Restaurants in Reykjavik
I spent last week exploring all that Iceland has to offer. Including some of the Top Restaurants in Reykjavik. I saw some wonderful views, ate some wonderful food and generally had a pretty amazing time. On my first day I went on the Golden Circle & Fontana Wellness Tour lead by Reykjavik Excursions. First stop was the Gullfoss waterfall.
Then the Geysirs at Thingvellir National Park.
Ending up at Fontana Wellness Spa with Geothermal Baths and a bloody cold lake that no one else was stupid enough to swim in.
Enough about the trip and down to the tips. For any healthy guy or girl visiting Iceland there are a few places I would recommend checking out.
- First and foremost, if you want to see the northern lights (what tourist wouldn’t?), book to go on your first day there. None of the companies do refunds, however if you don’t see the lights they will allow you to keep going for free. We stupidly made the mistake of trying to go on our last night in Iceland, when there were no lights to see.
- Secondly, go on the Reykjavik Excursions, Golden Circle & Fontana Wellness Tour. It is an all day tour and takes you to see some of the most beautiful spots in Iceland.
- Any healthy readers out there, need to visit Glo. It is a raw vegan restaurant, go for lunch and make sure you order a dessert!
- Any fitness readers out there, need to visit Safa Bar health store. It is similar to a Holland and Barrett, but filled with a bunch of brands and products that you might not have seen before.
- Try; Minke Whale, Icelandic Plokkari, Atlantic Char & the traditional Icelandic lamb soup.
- For night life try, b5 club. But make sure to get there before 11:30pm! The bar itself isn’t anything to rave about but it seems to be constantly filled with good looking young people, so it was a winner in my books.
- For a slightly more civilised drink, try Slippbarinn. It is attached to the hotel I stayed at and is ranked the third best bar in Reykjavik according to trip advisor.
- On that note stay at Iceland Air Hotel Reykjavik marina. It is a really trendy hotel, with a wonderful breakfast buffet, just 4 minutes walk from the city centre.
- Lastly check out café Babalu for a slice of raw, vegan carrot cake.
