Marshall house is a famous house in Iceland, was build for American money after second world war. The name comes from the Marshall Plan, a post-World War II economic recovery package from which Iceland received generous development funds, used to build this former fish meal factory. Now there are some workshops there, Ólafur Elíason, Kling and Bang and the Living Art Museum.

We tasted the RAW SCALLOPS FROM BREIÐAFJÖRÐUR WITH OLIVE OIL, LEMON AND BLACK RADISH, GULL CHEESE, WALNUTS AND TRUFFLE HONEY and PROSCIUTTO ON ROASTED BREAD WITH GOAT CHEESE SAUCE.
All dishes were good in my opinion the scallop were the best.

For the main we tried TAGLIOLINI WITH ‘NDUJA, SHELLFISH AND CREAM CHEESE, DEEP FRIED PIZZA WITH MOZZARELLA, ARTICHOKE AND RUCOLA and BEEF ENTRECÔTE WITH FRENCH FRIES AND SALSA VERDE.
The pizza was interesting, the bread was deep fried but the topping very fresh. The pasta was good, a bit spicy. The entrecote was good and the fries were the best I have had in a long time. Very strange that the waiter did not ask how we like it cooked.
We had the CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH CREAM, well the cake came with an excellent ice cream. The cake was a bit dry and was missing a little sweetness.

Overall a nice dinner......

I was here for a business dinner. It is in the old fish-processing district of Reykjavik about 30 minutes from downtown. An interesting building that also houses three galleries and that is kool, functional and has preserved its industrial looks. I had Breðafjord scallops as a starter and it is one of the best dishes I have had in my life. They were served raw with olive-oil, lemon and on black radish. A heavenly combination were the freshness of the radish contrasted with the sweetness of the scallops. Thereafter I had the ocean perch which was delicious as well.

In the same house as art galleries and museum with view of the Reykjavík harbor and Harpa Concert Hall. Not yet a tourist spot here you will see local artists and friends dining and having lunch.

Fantastic new venue in the heart of the REAL city- rough, smelly, wet fish harbour juxtaposed w glorious reworked fish-factory-as-gallery-restaurant! So pleased this new project happened.
Can't fault the combination of great food, fine drinking, beautiful interiors of rawness and craft. VISIT SOON!

Marshall restaurant is on the ground floor of the high-rise window building out in Grandi, once the fish factory of Baejarutgerdin. High ceiling and wide walls, with an excellent view to fish trucks and fish crates. The cooking is a bit of waste, the fish of the day neither new nor short enough fried. Fish of the day should be fish of the day. Service not very schooled, though friendly. The lunch menu is very short and not so exciting. I shall not be a frequent visitor for the next few weeks. However, parking is sufficient, which is becoming one of the most urgent things when choosing a restaurant in the city of cold and salted bikers.
