We went for dinner and thought it was very good. I had the beef tenderloin, triple dipped potatoes and corn on the cob. My boyfriend had the surf and turf and liked it. The dessert was the best part. We got the brownie with chocolate mousse, raspberries, caramel sauce, and raspberry sorbet. It was delicious!! It was so good that... More

Could not fault this restaurant at all, brilliant food, and staff were very friendly! Steak was cooked to perfection and the seafood starters were amazing, as was the strawberry / Toffee dessert!

We went here for my wife's birthday whilst in Iceland as we both enjoy steak. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the meals prepared very quickly in the open kitchen. It may look expensive, but when compared with everything else in Iceland, it is average for the area. Steaks cooked perfectly and glazed with some lovely spices.... More

This restaurant sounded promising.... I like a good steak and I had low expectations for beef on an island so well known for great fish. I was pleasantly surprised! This restaurant was outstanding! We started with duck confit appetizer and it was phenomenal. I have never had better. For a main course, I had the beef tenderloin and my wife... More

Our group of 5 couldn't get a reservation the first day so we returned the following day. We were told that they were out of horse that day (bummer) (sarcasm). 3 of us ordered steaks, the other two ordered salmon and everyone really enjoyed their food. I loved the sweet potatoes crochets. The steaks were all cooked to perfection, the... More

Otherwise known as Steikhúsið, this place was our final dinner celebration for our vacation. We each had a steak and shared two sides. Considering Iceland isn't cheap to begin with, the final price was very close to a steakhouse in NYC. If you're looking for a good meal, go here - I promise you won't be disappointed.

Went here last night with some friends, the staff were lovely and friendly and everyone except me ordered steak (as you would expect being a steakhouse), the meat was all cooked to perfection and everyone declared it was simply delicious. I was the token vegetarian at the table, the restaurant offers a veggie choice everyday (which I didn't like today)... More

Chef Arsen and his team really go out of their way to create amazing food at this centrally located Reykjavik classic, although the experience starts with wonderfully creative craft cocktails. Of course, the steaks are outstanding, starting with special preparation where the meat is gently warmed before grilling... As for the meat itself: tender and delicious. The menu says 28... More

We had dinner at the Steakhouse our first night in Reykjavik. The 6 of us all ordered steaks and no one was disappointed. Just FYI, they do have horse on the menu and my son ordered it, but they were out (the server said that they had run out a few days earlier as it is very popular. Also note... More

Description
A five story concrete building that once housed offices on the upper floors and a metalwork company on the ground floor, now is the home of restaurant The Steakhouse on the ground floor, the four floors above are now apartments. The old harbor area of Reykjavik has in the last couple of years, changed in to a real gem where various cuisines, museums and arts and crafts have replaced the metalworks and fisheries. The newest addition is STEIKHÚSIÐ, which simply means „The Steak House”. The name is a deliberately this simple and descriptive, the aim is to be the only steakhouse you think of after the first visit. The heart of Steikhúsið is the coal oven from Mibrasa and the soul is our own way of tendering meat for at least 28 days. Those who seek for something purely Icelandic won’t be disappointed, Steikhúsið also caters to those who want the best of Icelandic lamb and fish.
