The Restaurant - Gallery Restaurant
The restaurant of Hotel Holt, Gallery Restaurant, has consistently been regarded as the best restaurant in Iceland ever since it opened four decades ago. The capacity is 75 seats. In January 2008, the kitchen was extensively renovated and a custom made stove was brought in from Moldin in France. This is a machine built entirely based on the preferences and standards set by our head chef, Mr. Fri├░geir Ingi Eir├şksson, who then joined his father and Hotel Manager, Eir├şkur Ingi Fri├░geirsson in running the enterprise.
Since spring 2011, the father and son team have been focusing on running the restaurant part of the business as well as running the catering for Vi├░ey Island in Reykjav├şk, while Snorri Valsson runs the hotel-side for Geirlaug ├×orvaldsd├│ttir the owner. Snorri was the Guest Service manager for 3 years working for Eir├şkur and Fri├░geir so there is still a great deal of synergy between the two companies sharing the builiding.
