Restaurant in an old salt factory: Matur og Drykkur in Reykjavik

Go to Matur og Drykkur in Reykavik for traditional Icelandic dishes! Here they combine old recipes with the best Icelandic ingredients. But then with a modern twist! Matur og Drykkur is located at the harbour area of Reykjavik. In an 90-year old building that used to be a salt factory.

At Matur og Drykkur they only use local products. At the farmer they get vegetables, fruit and meat. And the fishermen deliver free fish to them every day. These ingredients are used to serve bistro style lunch dishes. Delicious fish soups, savoury pies and a catch of the day. For dinner you can order smaller plates. Perfect to share and thus try out more dishes from the menu.
