Came here for a meal on our layover. We had the fish of the day which happened to be Arctic Char, it was amazing. The skin was perfectly cooked and the wine was amazing. I would say that you should make a reservation as it...More

Our fish of the day was good, nicely prepared and well balanced, fresh fish. Service was as before slow but our server was very nice. Decent atmosphere, better for lunch than dinner. Overall quite good.

Really enjoyed our meal at Snaps. There was a good mixture of locals and tourists. The atmosphere was lively but not noisy. Food was fresh and great. Catch of the day highly recommended.

This place was across the street from our Air BnB. It was great! Worth the money! Amazing food and service. Went here on my last night and not sure why I didn’t go here sooner. Try the ribeye! You will not be sorry

Good value lunch with wine, catch of the day was excellent and wine reasonable compared to other restaurants we have visited. Staff couldn’t be more helpful and ambiance was very welcoming.

Had dinner here as a solo traveler. Moules-frites with a glass of champagne was wonderful. Price was as expected for the city, but at least the quality of the food was not a disappointment (as I experienced in other restaurants in Reykjavik). On Friday night...More

Snaps was suggested by a local and it was indeed not full of tourists, but rather with people who knew each other. The vibe is relaxed and fun. The prices are typical of Iceland- no real bargains here. We shared the zucchini, apple and goat...More

No reservations possible after 6 p.m. That said, we turned up around 8 on a Saturday evening and had to wait just 45 minutes, which passed easily drinking cocktails in the downstairs bar. They came and called us when our... More
