Restaurant Þrír Frakkar

The restaurant is conveniently located in the downtown old part area and is within walking distance of the major shops and services in the city center and in the vicinity of most of the foreign embassies in Reykjavík.  The chef, Úlfar Eysteinsson, and his family have always placed major emphasis on fish courses and the restaurant has become well-known for its delicious fish fare. Other specialities on the menu include whale meat and sea bird entrees. Apart from specializing in seafood and traditional Icelandic cooking, we serve mink whale, which guarantees that our Icelandic and foreign guests will not forget the taste of this great-tasting meat. 

Booking ahead is recommended as the restaurant is always very busy. It seats 44 guests and prides itself on its fine service. Prices are in the moderate range and the restaurant offers an inexpensive Lunch menu.

Opening hours:

The restaurant is open Monday through Friday from 11:30 noon to 2:30 pm and 6:00 to 10:00 pm.
On Saturdays and Sundays the restaurant is open between 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm.
