Employing farm-to-table techniques to the point you'd swear you're in a far-flung Portlandia episode, this mom-and-pop shop specializes in elevated interpretations of traditional Icelandic recipes. Multi-course meals change daily depending on seasonal produce.The colostrum creme brulee is not to be missed. Laugavegur 60;

An affable waitstaff and a wall stocked with locally brewed tipples (try the birch schnapps) make seaside Mar a standout, but dishes like the wild-mushroom risotto topped with fried langoustine lift the restaurant to all-star status. Geirsgata 9;

Offering a breath of fresh air from Icelandic staples, Snaps lends its savoir faire to perfected platters like moules frites and confit de canard. Enjoy blended cocktails at a copper-top bar, or dine on white cloth under greenhouse-style windows. Thorsgata 1;

Set in the gentrified Old Harbor complex and painted in bright coats of Tiffany blue, this shanty-chic restaurant offers views of the bay and bobbing boats, which diners can admire while devouring a parade of Icelandic selections on the nine-course "adventure" menu. Geirsgata 3;
