A Magical American Christmas buffet in Reykjavik

Are you in Iceland over Christmas and can't find anything open over the holidays, or if you hail from the US and are missing your Christmas turkey, this American Christmas buffet will bring all the magic of Christmas to the whole family. 

Haust is a chic restaurant at Reykjavik's largest hotel, Fosshótel in the centrally located Borgartún, the financial district of the city. The restaurant offers fresh Icelandic produce based on the harvests of each season. 

For Christmas, Haust has been beautifully decorated and even offers a Christmas playhouse for kids to play before and after the buffet, which is either a brunch or a dinner on weekends, or lunch on weekdays. 

The "Big American Christmas Buffet" which has already been attended by 4000 guests this last month, offers a wonderful selection of traditional Icelandic Christmas Cuisine as well as American classics including whole roast turkey, buffalo hot wings, beef rib eye and pecan pie. 

The buffet also features special "Kids Only" buffet for smaller appetites.  It's open every day during Christmas and also for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. For further information and bookings click HERE.   The buffet is available from November 16th to January 1st.
