Þrír Frakkar or Three Coats is a well-established bistro-style restaurant, located in on a quiet street in downtown Reykjavík. It has been managed by chef Úlfar Eysteinsson and his family since the restaurant opened in 1989. The family has managed to build up a consistently excellent reputation at this classic, laid-back atmosphere restaurant that prides itself on its fine service.
The main emphasis on the menu is their fish courses and Þrír Frakkar has become well known for its delicious fish fare. Other delicacies on the menu include horse meat, whale meat and seabird entrees. We highly recommend the smoked Puffin, but at Þrír Frakkar it is served tender and delicate with a side of house-made mustard.
Þrír Frakkar has been regarded to be one of the best places to enjoy traditional Icelandic food in Reykjavík as it offers a variety of authentic and traditional Icelandic dishes, using the freshest and often locally sourced ingredients to perfect the dining experience Þrír Frakkar has to offer.
This place is tucked away in an almost residential area but worth the discovery. It’s very small and be sure to make reservations. Had a wonderful meal of Plaice and Langoustine. My colleague had the lamb which was also excellent. Very friendly staff. Overall – a great experience.
This restaurant is close to Main Street and in a great, walkable area. The seafood is extraordinary – I am not at all partial to Catfish, but this preparation was off the charts! Also, you must try the Gravlax and Halibut. Outstanding menu and everything tastes like it was caught less than an hour ago. Incredible! Will definitely return.
The whale starter was the best starter is have ever had, bar none!!!. Our mains were both catfish and were really excellent, cosy and nice service good prices. Lovely place.
