Frederiksen Ale House

We are located at Hafnarstræti 5. between the harbor and Harpa Concert Hall, in the capital city of Iceland, Reykjavík.

Frederiksen Ale House is a family owned bar & kitchen, established in 2014. We have a great variety of comfort food and a good selection of beers and our cocktails are both creative and delicious. When opening the restaurant, we wanted to take the “usual classic pub food” to another level, using the experience and knowledge that we’ve gained living in the countryside, growing our own vegetables and livestock. We want our guests to have as fresh ingredients as possible, get fair portions, and every dish should have its own twist. We wished that our guests would find there “local away from home” at our place. Well, it looks like we managed.
