It was in 2010 that a young lad from húsavík, a little fishing town up north, was awarded the title, Chef of the Year.

The young chef, Gústav Axel Gunnlaugsson spent months traveling around Iceland looking for the real taste of Iceland and along the way, they found a few things that now are key items of the interior of their new restaurant.

An old freezing plant from Flatey in Skjálfanda, in the far north of Iceland, now serves as a backdrop for the bar at restaurant Sjávargrillið and all around the restaurant, you will find driftwood that the two chefs, have found on their travels and dragged to the restaurant on Skólavörðustígur 14.

On the road, Gústav came up with a menu like no other, Gústav's interpretation of the collective grill taste of his homeland, Iceland.
