Fun and fire downtown
The Grillmarket has been one of the hottest places in town since it opened. The bold interior design gives this place quite a unique look and is reminiscent of an American steakhouse. The dried skin of spotted catfish is certainly something to look at on the wall. The restaurant spans two floors, the first floor and basement. On the upper floor you can watch the chefs grilling the food over an open fire. The service is very much alert and attentive. The style of cooking is rather American; though the portions are not as big as usual, which is nice. As a starter the shellfish soup is good and hot, and served with fresh dill. The grilled king crab is rather tasteless and served with seaweed from the south coast of Iceland. The main course of a hefty redfish fillet and smoked pork cheek is a nice duo served with corn and chanterelles. The skyr and liquorice with crispy meringue is really good. Overall we enjoy our visit, and the place is packed as usual on a Sunday night...
