Vi∂ Tjörnina Restaurant
This restaurant in downtown Reykjavik is quirkily charming, with its 1930s Iceland decoration and cosy little rooms. On the night we went it was crowded, but there was no sense of intrusion, and the food was divine. Traditional Icelandic cuisine, such as beautfully marinaded puffin, or baked saltcod, is fused with a French flair, making a truly delectable experience. Most drooled over were the puddings, especially a chocolate mousse-cake to die for, and while the price is healthily eye-widening, it's not as exorbitant as you might fear. Expect to pay around £45 for 3 courses, and you won't be disappointed.
