Welcome to the Grillmarket
At the heart of the culinary experience that is the Grillmarket is Iceland´s pristine nature. A close working collaboration with dedicated local farmers guarantees the very best in local produce and allows us to create a menu that´s a magical fusion of tradition and modern cuisine. Just some of the local products that feature on the menu are lamb, beef, trout, quail, skyr and honey.
We recommend the Grillmarket’s tasting menu that our chef ́s have put together and consists of a selection of dishes from our menu, and is served family style for the whole table to enjoy. The dishes are served in an order we think is best suited to thrill the palate.
Our aim is to work closely with local farmers. We buy most of our produce direct from the farm. They tell us what’s in season, then we cook the product our own special way and the customer gets to enjoy the end result. Through our cooking we strive to highlight the origin of each product while using fire, smoke, fire logs and coal. The outcome is an unexpected and exciting culinary treat for our customers where our Icelandic heritage and the modern age meet.
The passion in the kitchen
Our aim was to create an Icelandic restaurant. The interior was to be inspired by the beautiful Icelandic nature and so was the food. We used local materials such as tanned skins of spotted wolffish, columnar basalt, moss and trestles to decorate the restaurant’s interior and the produce is predominantly Icelandic, much of it bought straight from local farmers.
