We stopped in for a late lunch. Perhaps our taste preferences but we found the food okay, the service non existent and the prices expensive. We had 1/2 orders and lunch for three was $70.

We stumbled into this restaurant looking for a bite and were surprised at how quickly it filled up (don't know if most folks were there after church). Anyway, it was our first taste of Danish food - I ordered the Ham Special and my husband,...More

Came across this place by chance and stooped for lunch. Lovely atmosphere and the staff are very welcoming. We had the Cured Salmon & Advocado and Camembert & Bacon, both of which were delicious, with an excellent cup of coffee. Would definitely eat here again.

We were looking for someplace to grab a quick sit-down dinner. Initially, we were planning to go to a restaurant right downtown the street, but stumbled upon Jomfruin on the way there. The menu did not have a lot of variety in types of dishes...More

Great service and interesting dishes. I had the Luxury Platter and 2 snafs as recommended. Note:The Norwegian Aquavit is very potent. Anyway, the food was great and we floated back to the hotel...full to the brim.

Welcome to Jómfrúin, the home of Danish smørrebrød in Iceland. It all began in 1888 with Oscars Davidsen’s highly praised smørrebrød restaurant in Copenhagen. Today, in Reykjavík, "Jómfrúin" stands for the best in Danish smørrebrød. An unbroken tradition of quality and Danish culinary culture for the past 100 years. Essentially an open-faced sandwich usually featuring rye sourdough bread, smørrebrød presents different combinations of seafood, meat, vegetables and condiments, and is typically enjoyed with a cold local beer and snaps (aquavit). Enjoy!
