Reykjavík Marina


Iceland is a very nice place, there is little doubt, however the hotel that I have been banished to tonight, although nice inside in parts, the bar, does have curious views. For example these are the views as I look out of my bedroom window. I am no sailing expert but dredgers and scrapped looking boats do not normally form part of the visage of a Marina. And I know it is supposed to be a Marina as the hotel is called

On the plus side the bar is nice and the Burger was great! No chips just small new potatoes cooked in a bag.

Harbour Restaurant at Copenhagen Island Hotel


Rarely do I get excited about the prospect of eating in a hotel restaurant when travelling and usually my reservations are reasonable. Food rarely comes above the above acceptable because I am not paying mark. This hotel is an exception. Firstly it is a great hotel, not far from the airport and right next to the local train station so imagine it would be a good base for visiting Copenhagen.

The menu is small, maybe 4 options for each course, 3 for dessert. Very fish based and no chicken in sight on the menu. The food is excellent, the service is good and the ambience and view of the harbour is exceptional. Well recommended.

The food looks good as well. Starter was two types of cod on a beetroot base, two slags in fact. Main was baked salmon on red onions with wild rice and asparagus. Dessert was poached pear with ice cream and berries with a crumble base. Best dinner for a long time.

Cost 400 Danish Kroner, somewhere in the 40£ region including a beer.
