Our food and drinks

At MATUR OG DRYKKUR we specialize in classical Icelandic cuisine with a modern twist. We go to great lengths to find Icelandic cookbooks and other written material that may contain recipes we can use in new and inventive ways.
Everything on our menu is homemade with first class produce.
