Fiskmarkaðurinn serves New Style Seafood Cuisine where Hrefna Sætran and her team use local and fresh ingredients to prepare fish, meat, and sweet dishes with a modern twist. Founded in 2007, Fiskmarkaðurinn quickly became a favorite in the Reykjavík ambitious restaurant scene and remains both popular and highly acclaimed.
Innovation in a warm ambiance
In a unique atmosphere, Fiskmarkaðurinn has dazzled Icelandic food lovers and tourists from around the world. The main influence is Icelandic and Asian, but nothing is carved in stone when it comes to the restaurant’s innovative team.
A spin-project of family and friends
Guests at Fiskmarkaðurinn frequently ask about the interior design and which prominent interior architect was responsible for it. But the truth is that no-one is. It simply started with an empty space and three enormous Norwegian trees, imported to Iceland.
The outcome of this spin-project is dark but warm – modern, yet classic. Black is overall a dominant colour, but the green bamboo trees, the gold from inside the oriental-style table lights and the yellow and red lighting in the walls give Fiskmarkaðurinn a colourful style.
No table cloths – feel free
Guests receive a relaxed first-class service where every etiquette is followed, but still they are able to ‘drop by’ without going home to change. Flaunting thick, shiny, soft and dark-brown oak-tables in the restaurant, Hrefna and the gang decided to skip the white table-cloths that are usually associated with fine-dining.
Fiskmarkaðurinn sums up to be a place where food is sacred and fully loved; where people are encouraged to feel that love and enjoy every bite in their own relaxed skin.
Fiskmarkaðurinn is a solid Icelandic restaurant, meeting Asian influences both in the restaurant’s interiors and in the careful and innovative preparation of the menu – in a New Style.
