A co-traveler/friend made a reservation for another nice dinner on Valentine’s Day. The restaurant is situated in a 160-year-old building in the center of Reykjavik.

I realize that no California wine is available here and most places in Iceland.

Single item is very expensive but set menu looks reasonably priced.

I wanted to enjoy Icelandic lamb once again for the last time. Surf & Turf Iceland looks good since all other goodies are included.

Starting with raisin nuts bread and whipped cream cheese
I always enjoyed bread at restaurants in Iceland.

Soft and rich cod with creamy sauce. Just delicious.

Steak Plank & Langoustine, beef, lamb, pork
Heavenly. Lamb is as tender and juicy as always. Pork is crispy. Beef is perfectly cooked.

Two guys couldn’t finish their plates. I had one slice of his steak too.

The server drizzled hot caramel sauce. Sweet. Tonight, I feel so content and happy.
