The chefs refresh the menu regularly, so please review the current menu.

  • Christmas in Grillið




This be Arnar, aka Addi, aka Arsi and so on.  Arnar enjoys all kinds of outdoors activities, especially hunting, hiking and basketball. It may also happen’ you catching him in his back garden doing his judo thing. Addi is always ready for good times and having fun – which is fine, as long as it does not evolve into shenanigans.

His favourite movie is Happy Feet and it’s especially the Mexican penguins that make him hold his breath.   

Sadly, Arsi is left handed – but he’s holding up quite well nonetheless. He even has a special knife for people with his disorder!

Give Arnar a LIKE!

Christmas in Grillið

All year round, the menu at Grillið, is ever evolving, strictly seasonal and continuously changing, depending on availability of produce and of course the season! That concept will not change during the holidays. We do not change the Christmas menu, produce wise, unless absolutely necessary, if some proteins were to become unavailable for instance. The Christmas menu in Grillið will, among other things, feature as previous years, Icelandic langoustine, goose and Icelandic reindeer and last but not least our Christmas herring, which makes a welcome return to the menu every year, in some form, as one of our signature dishes.

No entertainment is planned in Grillið per se, as an evening with us is a whole lot of fun, both literally as well as for the taste buds regardless of the season or time of year. DJ set GJ & Lísa will however take care of the music and play some tunes.
