Great Steaks - So Hungry I Ate A Horse...Seriously! May 22, 2012
We wanted to have good steaks at a decent price and found it at Gamla Vinhusid. It's located right in the main restaurant/ shopping area of the city.

It's not a big place but there are 4 different dining rooms, each with their own motif. We were near the front door and bar which was fine. My partner said the tenderloin steak was very good and the foal steak (yes, that's HORSE!!!) with pepper sauce that I had was absolutely awesome. Who would have thought that horse would be so tender and tasty...? The house-red wine was also decent and the chocolate cake and ice cream for desert were also solid.

The service and ambience were good and the prices were just a little better than the countless other restaurants in the area. Dinner for 2 with drinks and dessert was about 9,000ISK, which is pretty average for Reykjavik dining, sadly. Still, I'd recommend this restaurant to others looking for tasty eats and a nice dining experience.
