What is it?

Public House Gastropub is a bar and restaurant by foodies, for foodies, serving up delicious fusion cuisine in a warm and home-style ambience.

Why Go?

Blending Icelandic ingredients with self-described “Japanese flair”, the Public House Gastropub is an establishment dedicated to providing delicious, imaginative and unique dishes, all the while maintaining a cosy and family-friendly atmosphere. For connoisseurs of fusion food, there truly is no better locale.

Found on Reykjavík’s main thoroughfare at Laugavegur 24, guests can expect tapas-style platters comprised of eye-catching appetisers, paired beautifully with a range of mouth-watering beverages, including premium Boli lager—arguably the king of Icelandic beers. Emphasis is placed on taste rather than the size of each serving, and thus it is recommended that visitors order three to five courses each to fully satisfy their hunger.

Some of the gastropub’s most authentically Icelandic dishes include smoked puffin, served with blueberry jam and hazelnuts, and Arctic Char, completed with a side of coriander mayonnaise and rice crackers. On the Japanese end, guests could sample such options as the Wagyu Steak—beer-fed beef with rocoto pepper and jalapeno dip—sake fried soybeans or grilled romaine hearts, served with miso powder, parmesan cheese and a spicy yuzu dressing.

During the weekend, between 12PM and 3PM, the Public House Gastropub offers a ‘Bottomless Brunch’ special, where one is allowed to choose an unlimited amount of courses (though only two at a time) for a measly 3.990 ISK.  For just 1000 ISK extra, bottomless drinks are included on top, making for the perfect and most economically-savvy gastronomic treat in the city.
