Local food

On the Reykjanes peninsula, there is a great verity of options for dining out, from fast food diners to high-quality restaurants. The restaurants have made their own unique taste on the local products whether it is a burger, sandwich or fresh seafood from the local seafood markets.

Take a look at the selection of restaurants in Reykjanes by pressing the cards below and remember to bring back home the taste of Iceland and the Reykjanes Geopark by purchasing our very tasty souvenirs. 


There are plenty of restaurants all over the country.

The resturants are ranging from low to high prices and differing in quality, so there should be something to suit everyone´s needs. Whether you are interested in health food or something less wholesome, domestic or foreign cooking, it should be easy to find something tasty.


They are everywhere. Quite a few are in the capital and larger towns.

Some can be found in the most unlikely places such as an old barracks in a field or a shed by the sea.


Some smaller restaurants or diners offer a lighter menu; soup and bread, a typical Icelandic home cooking or something quite uniqe. An excellent choice for those looking for something less formal and more personal.

Breakfast places

What is better than starting the day with a good breakfast. Some hotels, restaurants and cafés have specialised in the morning traffic because of an early start of tours in the region or an early landing of a flight.

The Reykjanes Peninsula

Towns & Villages

Visitors to Iceland who arrive via Keflavik International Airport on the Reykjanes Peninsula may be somewhat surprised by the landscape that greets their eyes as they touch down in Iceland for the very first time. A seemingly endless, green-grey moss-topped lava field blankets the peninsula for as far as the eye can see, and it is this strange and rather other-worldly sight that is your first glimpse of the land of fire and ice.
