Restaurant opening hours over the New Year

Don't worry, you don't need to resort to eating a hot dog on New Years Eve although we thoroughly recommend the Bæjarins bestu stand in downtown Reykjavik. 

Eating out at some of the city's hotels and hostels is always a popular option and they are obviously open all the time.

Check out for example Jamie's Italian at Hotel Borg, the hip Kex Hostel or the cosy Hlemmur Square hotel. 

There are plenty of restaurants open in Reykavik during the holidays ranging from fancy to more relaxed.  Visit Reykjavik have compiled a list of opening hours during the holidays which you can access HERE.
