A New Restaurant and Café Have Opened in Perlan

In July a new restaurant and café were opened on the top floor of Perlan. Perlan is one of the many iconic sights to visit in Reykjavík.

The restaurant is called „Út í bláinn“ or „Into the blue“ to underline the buildings main feature which is the bright blue sky you can see looking out of glass dome that covers it.  The restaurant is unique and situated directly under the glass dome where you can enjoy the view in all directions, 360° over the ocean, mountains, woods and the city.

Út í bláinn is a bistro style restaurant with a relaxed and lively atmosphere where we focus on simple, traditional Icelandic, seasonal and high quality ingredients, prepared in a classic european style. Many of these dishes could be considered conventional Icelandic with a modern twist. For example steamed cod or lambchops to be enjoyjed, at a reasonable price, in the fabulous surroundings Perlan has to offer. Út í bláinn is open for both lunch and dinner and you can find our menus on our web site.

On the top floor Kaffitár has also opened a café. Kaffitár, meaning a tear of coffee, is an Icelandic roastery and chain of cafés that has been roasting and serving coffee with love and passion for almost 30 years. The café in Perlan offers not only all classic coffee drinks like the cappucino and lattes but new style coffee like the V60 slow brew and since we also serve ice cream in various flavors we of course make the Affogato which is a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a shot of expresso over it. Our pride and joy in the selection is our „Krakatá“ coffee ice cream made especially for us, using our own specially roasted and brewed coffe.

This is the perfect place to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee and some cake, pastries or sandwiches, all prepared in our own bakery.

On the fourth floor we also have an express café where we offer coffee, pastries, cakes and sandwiches for those who are on the run and don´t have much time to spend in Perlan.
