Messinn – More Great Fish in Reykjavik, Iceland

Messinn specializes in fish dishes cooked in the pan.  The restaurant is located in Reykjavik.  The city’s core is small enough that you can pretty much walk everywhere.  Here is the menu.


We started off with the giant prawns and lobster soup.  I am starting to believe that if you see lobster soup/bisque on any menu in Iceland, you should get it.  Its delicious, and this one was no exception.  The giant prawns were good also, but they were more like giant shrimp (probably got lost in translation from Icelandic to English on the menu).


Next the stars of the show.  We got two fish pans, the salted cod and Arctic char.  Both were very delicious.  All the food was fresh, and well prepared.

Cod on the left; Char on the right

For dessert, chocolate cake.  It was ok.  A bit denser than I like.


Overall, service was good, and the food was delicious.  I would return here for fish.  8/10
