Iceland and fresh fish go hand in hand, so it seems only natural to have a sushi restaurant down at the water’s edge, just a stone’s throw from the Reykjavík Fish Market.
Sushismiðjan offers a wide selection of maki, sushi, sashimi, and Japanese salads. Traditional shrimp, tuna, and Icelandic salmon are usually on the menu, along with a mouth-watering variety of shellfish including scallops and clams. Fish soup is a true classic.
The choice reflects what’s fresh in each day, and it is that delicious freshness that has also made the takeaway menu a favourite choice for locals and visitors alike.
The lovingly prepared dishes are served up by unassuming and friendly staff. Happily, Sushismiðjan has built a reputation for value as well as taste, and there are often special offers or two-for-one deals.
The little aquamarine building which houses the restaurant can accommodate anything from an intimate lunch date to a sophisticated dinner party. With lovely views over the old harbour and the distant mountains, the décor inside Sushismiðjan is simple and unpretentious, just like its prices.
